PRACTICE SCHEDULE THIS WEEK:  Regular practice Monday – Sunday.

BINGO NIGHT:   What an amazing evening!  So many of our parents turned out and brought friends to celebrate our team, have fun, and raise money.    We seated 205 guests for dinner and Bingo.   Metro's Bingo Tavern was a great venue, and this has become our team's most popular fundraising event!

LONG COURSE OPENER: Our first Long Course meet of the season is coming up on Saturday and Sunday, April 21 and 22 at the University of Arkansas HPER pool.   This meet is for Hawgs, Junior Hawgs, Wild Hawgs, and Senior Hawgs.  Please refer to the Order of Events below to determine which sessions to attend.  

Coach Carolyn would like to see all HAWGS swim 50-meter events in the Sunday afternoon session, and 100s on Saturday.  Juniors, Wild Hawgs, and Senior Hawgs can attend all three sessions.  This is a FAST pool, providing a great opportunity to earn  State Meet cuts (BB times) early in the season!

Deadline is TOMORROW, April 10th, so please commit your swimmer and sign up for a volunteer opportunity TODAY!
