Update 6/14/22 - We WILL be attending this meet.  Details will be posted and emailed as soon as I have.  Please refer to Meet Announcement below for more info.  And get your travel plans arranged.  

Timed Finals

Who:  This meet is for any swimmer who has a "B" cut and is looking to qualify for next level championship meet in July

Deadline:  Saturday June 10

Please read Meet Announcement for details

It is highly recommended that athletes come in the day before they swim - driving is tiring and causes stiffness.

Why This Meet:  SATX was too full (and outside).  UT is inside.  Due to Friday- Sunday it eliminates a day of travel for most interested athletes.  This is a TRULY world class facility!

Events:  Choose the best events with plenty of rest if more than one per day.  I am including below a copy of intended entries for San Antonio for reference by athlete.  Any questions, I am happy to chat!

Again, as the meet in SA, this LSC/meet does not guarantee entry so please keep travel plans refundable.  We should know on 6/15.  If, we cannot make it in, there is one more option - it is simply not as fast - and for a last chance situation like this we want the best conditions possible.
