SUNY Women's Swim Team Ranked Fourth

GANSEVOORT, N.Y. – The SUNY Cobleskill women’s swimming & diving team will head into the 2017-18 North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) season ranked fourth in the league’s preseason coaches’ poll. The Fighting Tigers are coming off a third place finish at the conference’s 2016-17 championship meet after posting a 3-6-1 overall record versus head-to-head completion during the regular season.

According to new head coach Jamie Hotaling the Fighting Tigers will be something of a work in progress this year.

“This season we are clearly going to be in a rebuilding mode because of our losses from last year’s roster. But if our newcomers develop like we believe they can along with our returners; we can become a competitive team by the end of the season.”
                                                                                                                                   
Leading the way for the Orange & Black this season will be junior Emily Sugrue, Long Island City, N.Y., The Renaissance Charter School, who captured conference titles last season in the 100-yard butterfly and the 100-yard freestyle along with sophomores Ashley Maye, Westport, N.Y., Moriah Central High School, and Michelle Moffett, Staten Island, N.Y. , Saint John Villa Academy, who earned All-NEAC Team honors in multiple relay events.

Among the newcomers freshman Lauren Howard, Fishkill, N.Y., John Jay-Hopewell Junction, has shown promise as both a diver and as a swimmer who can perform multiple events at multiple distances.  

The Fighting Tigers will begin their season on Saturday, October 28th, when they host SUNY Delhi in dual meet action at the Bouck Hall Natatorium beginning at 1:00 p.m.

"How Looking Becomes Seeing" Bright Hill Literary Workshops for Kids 25th Anniversary Exhibition Saturday, November 4

Written By Editor on 10/29/17 | 10/29/17

Treadwell, NY -On Saturday, November 4, from 3 - 5 pm, the Word & Image Gallery at Bright Hill Literary Center of the Catskills will open "How Looking Becomes Seeing, Bright Hill Literary Workshops for Kids 25th Anniversary Exhibit." The exhibit, which will remain in the gallery through December 22, is curated by Bertha Rogers, Founding Director of Bright Hill and leader of the Workshops for Kids Program; students will read their poems and stories during the reception, which is free and open to the public; refreshments will be served. Gallery hours are Mon., Tues., 10 am - 4 pm; Wed. 9 am - noon; during Word Thursdays, 7 pm, November 9; and during Veterans and Community Day, noon - 5 pm, November 11; as well as during Bright Hill's 25th Anniversary Book Launch and Celebration, 1 pm - 5 pm, Saturday, December 16.
     Included are artist books, dioramas, sculptures, drawings; and poems, legends, and riddles created by students in the BHLC Workshop program for kids from 5 - 14 that took place in the winter and summer of 2017. Among the five-day workshops that focused on S(Science) T(Technology) E(Engineering) A(Art) and M (Math)  were "Who Has Seen the Wind?"; "Bugs", "The Talking Trees"; "Poems and Stories in Three Dimensions"; and "One-Thousand and One Nights". Works included in the exhibit will also be represented in the forthcoming anthology, How Looking Becomes Seeing.
   For the "Who Has Seen the Wind" winter program, students learned about the many different types of winds in the world, then wrote riddles and poems about them; they also learned how the Theremin, an electronic instrument that works with the wave of a hand, operates, thanks to the expertise of Theremin expert Carl Welden.
     During the "Bugs" program, students, teachers, interns, and parents traveled to the Cornell University Insect Collection for a presentation by Curator Dr. Jason Dombroski, then modeled bugs and wrote about them in the workshop.
     For "The Talking Trees", participants traveled to the NYS State Museum to learn about the Gilboa Fossil Forest as well as living plants from NYS Paleontologist Dr. Jane Amati, after which Franklin artist Sondra Freckleton gave them a lesson in drawing trees; and Cyrus Hinman's uncle explained how trees grow.
    "Poems and Stories in Three Dimensions" was an intensive program for middle-school students; Treadwell resident Luke Potrzeba taught interns Cain Rodriguez and Ariah Mitchell how to install and use the Three-Dimensional Printer that was purchased as a memorial to the late Ernest M. Fishman; they, in turn, shared their knowledge with the other interns who then helped the students to design and build miniature dioramas with 3-d characters and fittings.
     The last summer workshop was "One-Thousand and One Nights," and students listened, every day, to several of the tales from the Arabian Nights as told by the legendary Scheherazade. They then learned about and wrote Arabic and designed and  painted illuminated manuscripts with gold leaf in the style of ancient Arabian manuscripts.
