Tsunami Swim-a-Thon is coming!

Tsunami’s have only days left to reach out and find their sponsors/pledges for Swim-a-Thon and many young swimmers have been working up their endurance to try for the 200 lengths limit during the two hour swim time. The event will be March 28, at the Seward pool. STSC has been providing an aquatic swim program in Seward for over 20 years and many of our Seward community are alumni of the Seward Tsunami swim program. STSC’s aquatic program is the only sport in Seward that combines ages 5 to 18 into one group. The program promotes healthy exercise, team building, […]

Swim-a-Thon for Seward Tsunami’s

Swim-a-Thon for Seward Tsunami’s

This year, the Seward Tsunami Swim Club’s annual Swim-a-Thon kicked off on February 24th. Swimmers have the month of March to gather pledges for their two hour swim on Friday, the 28th. This is the club’s sole fundraiser with donations pledged to young athletes who earn them by swimming for two hours straight. By the time their two hours are over, they could have swum up to 200 lengths of the pool or 5000 yards or 2.8 miles and burned over 500 calories and have been kept afloat by orange wedges, parents’ cheers, community financial support, and the promise of […]

Seward High School teeming with Marine Science Experts

Heidi Zemach for SCN – Eighteen teams are competing today, Friday Feb 28th through the weekend at the 17th Annual Alaska Region National Ocean Sciences Bowl. About 200 people are expected to attend, with another hundred volunteering to help out at the event in jobs such as timing, judging, scoring, cooking, creating art-work, and much more.  It’ll be a quick economic shot in the arm for the Seward community during the off-season, but for the students involved it’s much more. The original written research projects that each group produces provides students the opportunity to work closely with professionals in the […]

Seahawk Skiers Compete at the Last State Meet

Seahawk Skiers Compete at the Last State Meet

By Marc Swanson – There were four that attended State this year…all veterans from past state meets: Nick Zweifel, Jerry Swanson, Brooke Estes, and Dylan Gillespie (Italian exchange student Michele Da Re came along as an international groupie.) Whereas a few days prior ASAA was scrambling to determine whether Kincaid could actually host the meet (conditions were classified as minimal snow on top of “boiler plate ice.”)  But in the end the snow gods smiled (weakly) and tossed out several inches to allow for the meet to continue. The first day was an interval, free style race.  Nick, Jerry, and […]

Seahawk Skiers Compete at Soldotna Regions

Seahawk Skiers Compete at Soldotna Regions

By Marc Swanson Well…. At first it seemed to be a rewrite from Boroughs the week prior.  The mighty Seahawk skiers left Seward in the biggest snow storm of the year (not really saying much now is it?) to arrive in Soldotna….bare roads, light skiff of new snow, and potentially marginal ski conditions.  That said, never underestimate the powers and tenacity of the groomers.  The Soldotna groomers must’ve been working / reworking  the ice and trucking snow in from Georgia to create a course that was, considering everything, excellent and fast. Five Seahawks competed at Regions:  Brooke Estes, Logan Smith, […]

Skiers Hit the Ground Ice at Boroughs

Skiers Hit the Ground Ice at  Boroughs

By Marc Swanson – Even within the spectrum of comic tragedies, Shakespeare himself may not have had the guts to draft this one. It’s been a great season for the Seahawks ski team minus one rather critical element….yeah, the white stuff.  Since the season started the first of November we’ve been able to squeeze off perhaps a dozen practices on snow.  This has meant mixing it up with dryland, running, bounding up the Jeep Trail and, when possible, ice skating.  Meets have been far and few between.  Our last meet was the oatmeal slush 3 weeks ago.  Since then meets […]

The Schoolyard Habitat Project is beginning to show signs of life with the recent spat of warm wet weather.  This massive community undertaking has two more years of funding, and a host of other projects to tackle.  Last summer’s efforts, led by Matt Gray, transformed the elementary school’s front yard into a vibrant, inviting habitat.  Volunteer gardeners included The Seward Boys & Girls Club, the DaVinci Summer Science and Arts Camp, Seward Teen & Youth Center, Kenai Fjords National Park crews, a group of Master Gardeners, RBCA members, Alaska Soil & Water Conservation District, Seward Teachers, Seward Garden Club, the […]

Kenai Klassic:  A Wild and Wacky Race

By Marc Swanson – Well, as seems to be the general rule for the Seahawks, the past Nordic ski race in Kenai was an unforgettable moment that didn’t fail to entertain. We traveled by golden chariot to the Kenai meet last Friday – during the driving rain and wind storm—not exactly prime ski conditions.  Our driver and number one team cheerleader Duane Chase got us there safe and ahead of the avalanche guns. There were only five skiers that could make this race—Brooke Estes, Jerry Swanson, Nick Zweifel, Dylan Gillespie, and Hunter Kratz.  It was to be a classic race—problematic […]

Swim Club Start Up A Fun Time

Swimmers started their season with the Seward Tsunami Swim Club (STSC) with a fun filled day at the pool.

A document that all swimmers and parents read and sign stating that they will be kind, courteous and good sports with others and especially their team mates. Then, it was swim, swim, swim. The Seward Tsunami’s head coach Matt Hershock begins his eighth season with the club. He has seen many of his swimmers start out as […]
