April 2, 2018
I hope everyone had a great holiday weekend, and you are enjoying spring break! Just a reminder, this week is our team break. Practices will not be offered. Normal practice schedule should resume Monday, April 9.
The City of Reno is installing a new UV filter at Northwest Pool this week. The City has said the project should be completed and the pool will be back online on Monday. If there are any delays reopening, I will notify families via email.
RENO will be represented at Far Westerns this week by 11 swimmers! The meet is Thursday – Friday in Santa Clara, CA. Far Westerns is one of the fastest age-group meets in the entire country. We are looking forward to some great swims! Good luck to the following swimmers attending the meet:
- Amaya Aramini
- Elena Aramini
- Katelyn Buono
- Sam DeRuse
- Emma Karam
- Nathan McAlister
- David McLean
- Ella Palmer
- Aidan Pflieger
- Alexia Taylor-Arrendondo
- Claire Trevithick
Julie Abrigonde, Addison Crain, Lydia Dyer, and Lucy Platz all achieved qualifying standard, but they will not be attending. Congratulations to all the RENO swimmers who made the Far Western time standard!
Last week in my recap of the NNA meet, I forgot to mention RENO had two high-point winners. Congratulations to Marni Kraemer (8-under girls) and Kyla Sellers (6-under girls) for their outstanding swims!
