Rotary Host Families Needed for 2018-2019 
Hartford Rotary's next inbound exchange student will arrive in late August, and be with us, and be a student at Hartford High, until early summer 2019.  We will be lucky to host 17 year old Monika Adamczyk from Chelm in eastern Poland.  Besides being fluent in English she is competent in Spanish.  We would like to get commitments from three families in the Hartford area, each to host her for 3 to 4 month.  Rotary pays a monthly stipend to help Monika have some spending money, and the school chips in with lunch money.  Ask your family if they would like to have this fun and educational opportunity, while providing Monika with the same other young adults in the home.  

Monika is now a sophomore at a Lyceum in Chelm, which is near the Ukrainian border.  She is the only youngster at home weekdays, and her studies emphasize chemistry, biology, Spanish, English and Polish language and literature.  Her older sister studies in Wroclaw and is home weekends.  The sisters get along well and with their parents emphasize the outdoors with hiking, biking and sailing.  She thinks she might like to study dentistry or orthodontology in college, but thinks a year in the US will open up other opportunities for careers related to medicine.  She's fine with household chores, says she is neat and tidy, but isn't into cooking.   She will be a great addition to any receptive family in the area.

UW Campus Regional Placement Testing

Senior students who have been admitted to a UW campus are invited to participate in Regional Placement Testing. As a result of taking the tests, students find out their appropriate level of math, English, and foreign language to begin in college.
Students can register online for Regional Placement Testing, beginning February 1. The benefit of Regional Placement Testing is that students can take the test close to where they live, and they don't need to travel to the campus that they'd like to attend. Also, students need register for only one placement test even if they have been admitted to different UW campuses, or if they change their mind about which UW campus to attend. All UW campuses have access to each student's scores.

Athletics and Activities
Orioles Keep Streak Going
SLINGER - Eric Vanden Acker wants his Hartford Union team to respond to adversity better, whether at practice or in games.  The Orioles' Classic 8 conference contest against rival Slinger serves as a solid checkmark in that category. The Orioles scored three runs in the top of the third after the Owls knotted the contest in the bottom of the second, then rode the arms of Zach Lutz and Garrett Thomas afterward in a 5-2 victory Monday "That's what baseball is made of," Vanden Acker said. "When you have a little bit of adversity - I think one of the things that our guys are trying to improve on even more is when you have failures, how you respond to them. We put some really good at bats together in that inning."  Hartford (5-2, 4-2 C8) has won three straight games.  Slinger's 6-foot-8 Derek Sabin belted a one-out, tworun home run over the left field fence, sending an overflow Owls crowd into a tizzy with his two-run blast that tied the game at 2.  Lutz, who started and went five innings, then walked counterpart Hruz Wagner. After a strikeout, Lutz saw Trevor Ulesich reach on a dropped flyball to put two on with two out.    Click   here  to read the full article.

Hartford Tennis Claims 3 of 4 Extra Sets to Beat Hamilton, 4-3
One tiebreaker? Sure.  But two tiebreakers in one match? That's a little much.  It didn't seem to both Hartford Union's Phil Hoeschle and Thomas Kellicut, especially since the Orioles' No. 3 doubles team won both to help claim their match and clinch the team victory against Sussex Hamilton. After their match, Hartford led 4-2. It won, 4-3.  The Orioles won three of four tiebreakers against the Chargers.  "I was happy that we got three match tiebreaks. That's the difference in a 4-3 match," coach Andy Andress said. "Any time you win more match  tiebreaks than your opponent, you feel like you escaped with a good win."  Hoeschle and Kellicut twice came back from down a break in the first set to knot their match at 6. In the tiebreaker, the pair was up 3-1 but fell behind 4-3. A pair of winners - one from Kellicut, one from Hoeschle - put them ahead 5-4, then two Hamilton errors ended it in Hartford's favor, for a 7-6(4) set win.  Click here to read the full article.
