Thank you to everyone who has signed up for our Senior Night Meet against Beavercreek this Friday, January  10th.  Please be sure to check the time you report to work your shift before the meet.  (Shift times are posted on the website where you signed up for the job.)  If you have any questions, please contact Barb Swartz at [email protected].

If you have not signed up for all your volunteer requirements, please sign up for the Boy’s Sectional Meet (Friday, February 7th).  We still need 12 timers – this is an important position and the meet cannot go on without timers.  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!


Please remember to bring your Food Item to Friday’s Senior Meet.  Here is the link for what everyone is supposed to bring:   Junior Food List  All questions should be directed to Nancy Sparks at [email protected].  Thanks in advance for your donation and your help in making this a special night for the Seniors!

Help Needed!:

Nancy Sparks needs a helper for Friday night and Sat morning to get and return the Elk statue used at Senior Night - preferably a dad since it is lots of lifting. If you can help, please contact Nancy at [email protected].  Thanks for considering!

The Boy’s swim team continued their dominance with their sixth straight victory in a tie for first with St. X.  Sophomore Chris Quarin led the boys with a 1st place finish in the 100 free and a 2nd place finish in the 200 free.  Rounding out the other top 3 finishes:  Senior Steven Quarin took 2nd place in the 50 Free, Sophomore Dylan Curtis took 3rd in the 100 fly and Junior Nathaniel Lowry placed 2nd and Freshman Sam Wiedemann placed 3rd in the 100 breast.  A 2nd place finish in the 200 Medley Relay with the team of Curtis, Lowry, Sophomore Austin Spruill, C.
