Attention Team Captains:

The deadline for team t-shirts for the upcoming January GWOC Dive & Swim Meets is fast approaching.  Please have your agreed upon design submitted to Coach Launi by Friday, December 27th.  After approval by your Coach, Deb Lowry will place the order and get them back to you for delivery to your teammates in time for the meet. Remember, it is one agreed upon design for the girls and one for the boys. Details for tees for those that qualify for the District Meet will come at a later date.

Big 8 Meet:

A limited number of Varsity swimmers will be picked to swim in the Big 8 Meet in Canton at Canton McKinley High School on Friday.  Coach Launi is creating the entries and hopes to post on the website everyone who is attending by 9 pm tonight.  Swimmers that are picked to attend this meet need to get the form from the Athletic Department office tomorrow and have it signed by their teachers and discuss when they will make up their exam with their teacher.  Big 8 Swimmers need to be at the athletic entrance promptly at 11:10am on Friday and will need to bring a packed lunch to eat on the way to Canton.  Parents: swimmers will contact you as they get close to Dayton so you can arrive promptly to pick them up at CHS following the meet (this is usually pretty late).

Miamisburg Invite at WSU:

All Swimmers not swimming in the Big 8 meet and all eligible Divers will participate in the Miamisburg Invite at WSU on Friday.  Look for swim meet entries on the website by Thursday night.  Swimmers and all eligible Divers will take the bus from CHS to Wright State.  Please be at the Athletic Entrance of CHS no later than 3:15 on Friday – bus leaves at 3:30.  The meet starts at 5:30.  Parents, please arrive promptly at CHS to pick up your Swimmers and Divers following the meet.


If you have not signed up for all your volunteer requirements, please sign up for the Boy’s Sectional Meet (Friday, February 7th).  Remember, all parents that work the sectional meet get their banquet dinner paid for plus you will get to see some great competition as our swimmers start their qualification process to get to state!
