(July 16, 2012) The RCS Girl's varsity swim team finished
the 2011-12 season with a 5-5 record, competing against schools such as Emma
Willard, Albany Academy, and Albany High School. Five of the team athletes
qualified for sectionals in multiple events, and the team as a whole
received recognition as a NYS Scholar Athlete team, together achieving a 92
grade point average.
The team is looking to continue its success in 2012-13, and is currently recruiting more athletes. The team is open to students in grades 7-12, and the season starts with a meeting at the aquatics center lobby on Monday, August 13.
Students wishing to participate in the swim program must bring the following forms:
In order to complete these forms students must have had a physical within the past 12 months. The forms may be delivered to the the High School main office after August 1, and must be completed before students can participate in practice. Middle school students wishing to join the Varsity team must complete and pass the NYS Selection Classification Test. Students that meet the JV requirements may also participate on the varsity team, but may only compete as exhibition swimmers or divers. Details about the requirements can be found on the athletics section of the district website.
All athletes should come to all practices with a one piece bathing suit, towel, goggles, swim cap or hair tie, drinking water, appropriate gym clothes, and sneakers.
