Scratch deadline for Friday events will be 7:30 AM Friday, for Saturday events 5:30 PM Friday and for Sunday events 5:30 PM Saturday.

There will be five heats (E, D, C, B, A) for the 50 freestyle; four heats (D,C,B, A) for 100 & 200 meter events; three heats (C, B, A) for 400 meter events. The 800 and 1500 freestyle will have only a championship final.  If meet is “flighted” for Friday and Saturday, the “A” flight will swim slow to fast; the “B” will swim fast to slow.  If not “flighted,” all prelims will swim fast to slow.

No flight changes will be made after the entry deadline.
