NEW EVENT ORDER - Due to the size of the meet, the Meet Referee, the Program Operations Vice-Chair, the Age Group Vice-Chair, and the Meet Director have decided to combine the 10&U sessions on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday with the 11-12 and 13-14 preliminary sessions in the AM. This move will allow the athletes a bit more rest (for all ages) and give everyone the best opportunity for success. 10&U events were merged into our existing order of events. Below is an updated event list for each day's prelims to illustrate this change. Finals will be swum as listed previously in the meet packet.
