This is the MAC News for Wednesday, February 4th.
One last thank you to our Hogan Meet contributors - Thank you to John Borgersen for making a donation toward the printing of the programs. These all came from our Meet Director, Fred Manning, and I think we would be completely remiss if we did not extend a HUGE thank you to Fred for running the whole show!
Senior Prep and Masters swimmers, DON'T FORGET, practice is cancelled this evening due to a coaches meeting (the last coaches meeting was cancelled due to weather). Remember, there will be makeup practices available this coming Friday and next Friday from 8:00-9:00 pm in the bubble for anyone interested in attending.
There are some practice schedule changes for this weekend due to the ASC meet and the High School County Championships. Seniors Red, Black, and White and Age Group II will all swim from 8:30-10:30 am in the bubble. (High School swimmers competing in Counties may come at 8:00 if they wish). Age Group I and Novice practices will remain the same - Age Group I from 7:30-9:00 am in the indoor pool and Novice from 10:30-11:30 am in the bubble.
The meet notice for the Maryland Swimming Championship meet ( www.mdswim.org/Top_Nav/Meets/2008-2009_Schedule_Results/2009_Maryland_Swimming_Championship_Meet.htm) has been posted. The meet is scheduled for March 5-8 and will be conducted at the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, MD. This meet is open to swimmers who meet or beat the qualifying times. The fee for participation is $59. All entries, along with a check to cover the fees, are due to the meet entry folder by 12:00 pm Saturday. If you have any questions as to whether your child should attend this meet, please speak to your child's coach. Don't worry, swimmers who qualify at either the ASC Senior meet or the GBSA Last Chance meet will be added to the team's entries (be sure to let your swimmer's coach know that they qualified and wish to attend).
The practice schedule for today is as follows - Senior Red and Black from 4:00-6:30 and Age Group I from 6:00-7:45 in the bubble. There is no practice today for Senior White, Senior Prep, Age Group II, Novice, or Masters.
