Update, Monday, December 4 2017
We have several big meets coming up these next two weekends.
First off this weekend is Junior Nationals (Iowa, City) and the Reindeer Splash (Clarkston, WA) and then the Washington State Meet next weekend in Federal Way. We’ve had some great swims so far this season; let’s finish 2017 with a bang!
Junior Nationals is the fastest 18 and Under Meet in the country. It is an honor for SWAT to have representation at his meet and gain exposure for our program at the National Level. Senior Swimmer Evonne Stehr leaves Wednesday for Iowa City, IA and will be competing in four events 50 Free, 200 Free, 100 Back and 100 Free. If you see Evonne on deck wish her well as she prepares to take on the best 18 and under swimmers in the nation.
The Reindeer Splash SWAT has 33 swimmers attending the meet this weekend in Clarkston, WA.
There is some excellent competition for our athletes this weekend and we’re seated well going into the meet. Get ready to finish the year strong!
Saturday and Sunday : 13 & over 7:30-8:15 and 12 & under 8:15-8:45 (note: warm up is now split into two sessions due to the number of swimmers attending)
* Swimmers need to be there early for warm up to claim their Team Area in the stands *
Parents: we also have lane timing assignments for this weekend volunteers will be needed to time (See attachment)
Washington State Meet Entries are going in today
The final meet of 2017 is the WA State Meet in Federal Way. SWAT is sending 16 swimmers. This is the first time SWAT has attended the WA State Meet. It’s exciting to see how SWAT matches up against the rest of the top swimmers in the state. Swimmers are leaving next Thursday for the competition. Travel Info will be sent to participating swimmers shortly.
