District t-shirts for the dive team qualifiers have been delivered to coach Patti. The swim team tees will be passed out one night this week for those that have qualified for Districts.
Girls District Qualifiers:
All girls going to districts are invited to a pasta dinner and chick-flick movie on Friday night, February 20th, 6:30, at Nicole Swartz’s house (110 Nutt Road and those driving can park at the church next door). Contact the captains if you have questions.
A huge thank you to all the parents who volunteered this season. This past weekend’s hosting of the Boys & Girls Division I & II Sectional meet was a huge success and a great fundraiser for our team. We received great feedback on the quality of the meets from coaches, referees, athletes and spectators. None of this would have been possible without all of your support!
Team End of Season Banquet:
The Team Banquet is on March 11th. Seniors might want to start working on their Memory boards which are usually 16 x 20 photo collages that will be displayed in the lobby at Yankee Trace during the banquet.
