Dear Swimmers and Parents,
 
February Frost Meet Recap
Last weekend we had some unfortunately wet weather during our February Frost Meet, but our 90 VJO swimmers barred through the elements and had some remarkably great swims. We had 21 new “B” times achieved, 14 new “A” times achieved, and 3 brand new Junior Olympic qualifying times achieved.  Both Mikaela Gomez (10) and Ethan Rosario (10) achieved first time ever Junior Olympic qualifying times and will be joining our JO team next month at the Junior Olympic Championships in Concord, CA.  Mikaela Gomez achieved a JO time in the 50 Free with a 31.76 and a JO time in the 50 Back with a 37.46.  Ethan Rosario achieved a new JO time in the 50 Free with a 32.44.  Great job VJO swimmers, keep up the hard work!
 
Thank You to All Volunteers!
Thank you swimmers, parents, and volunteers for your help in making our February Frost Meet possible.  We could not have hosted the meet and made it a success without everyone’s help.   A special thank you to all of our volunteers that did not have swimmers on our team any more.  We also want to give a big thank you to John Yee, our VJO Meet Director, for organizing and running the meet.  Thank you, thank you, thank you for everyone’s help!
 
 
Thanks,
Go Sharks!
Jennifer Thiem
