YMCA Nationals Begins Today in Greensboro! Let's Go Mudcats!!

Hi Mudcat families~


We hope everyone had a very Happy Easter and is enjoying a much deserved Spring Break! A few of our Mudcats have still been hard at work at the pool this past week, and after months of training, thousands of yards, and hours and hours of hard work, the big meet is finally here!  We know you will join us in sending “Good Luck” wishes to our 5 National Team members as they begin competition in Greensboro, NC this morning. 


Congratulations to the following swimmers on our 2018 Short Course National Team.  It has been an amazing season so far, and we can't wait to see what this week will bring for these dedicated athletes!!

Below you will find a list of who is swimming today and the estimated time of the event. You can catch all of the Prelims action streaming live on your computer or phone on the front page of USA Swimming:


There is a Boy’s Pool and a Girl’s Pool….each one should have it’s own feed once the meet is up and live.



There is also a Time Trial session each day at Nationals that begins immediately after the morning session. There is a separate set of challenging qualifying times required to be able to swim in Time Trials.  These sessions will not be live-streamed, but we’ll keep you updated on the great swims in the afternoons as well!


Thanks for tuning in if you’re able and helping us cheer our Mudcats on from Columbia!
