Swim Team Update Week of 1-8-18

Good evening everyone,

I apologize for the late email, was waiting on a few results files.  Great job at our dual meets last weekend and the GCC League Meet yesterday!  The team qualified for 42 finals swims and had over 30 season best times.  Our schedule for this week is included below.

Reminder that all practices are now at Lake Health Wellness Center.  Swimmers will need to head there after school and can be picked up from the new facility after practice.

Swimmers that were not in the meet Saturday are in the meet this Wednesday night at the Strongsville Rec Center.  The Perry Invitational next Saturday we are limited to the teams six fastest times in each event.  Reminder that for this meet girls and boys are split with girls swimming in the morning and boys in the afternoon/evening.  Lineups will be posted throughout the week.

Picture forms will be passed out this week.  

Last item is some good news that Mr. Cassella has worked it out for us to be able to offer morning practices.  These practices will not be required but for swimmers looking for extra practice or that need to makeup for missing a practice in the afternoon.  We will update with info as it becomes available.
