Coach Amy’s Comments:
1.) GRE Fall Frenzy: CGAC had a great showing at the 2017 Greenwood Gators Fall Frenzy! In addition to swimmers achieving best times and new Divisional and State time standards, the following swimmers also earned the high point trophy for their respective age groups: Tony Gipson (15 & Over boys), Gracie DeLuna (11-12 girls), Vincent Howe (9-10 boys), and Camron Mazdai (8 & Under boys). Congratulations to our high point winners and to all of our swimmers who competed this past weekend.
2.) CGHS Fall Play: This will be taking place this Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. Please plan for parking accordingly. Per request of CGHS, no loitering in the Hall of Excellence during show times.
3.) Jingle Bell Classic: Entries will be posted by the start of practices no later than Wednesday. Please check your swimmer's entry for corrections.

Jingle Bell Meet Update from our Meet Coordinator - Thank you to everyone who has signed up to work the Jingle Bell Meet! The spots have filled up very quickly! There will be a few more spots that will open up this Thursday night (Nov. 9th) at 8:30 for those of you that are still trying to get some spots in. Please keep in mind that families are not able to sign up for more than 4 spots at this meet. The system is set to email you one week before your scheduled work time and again 1 and 2 days before. If for any reason you are not able to work your spot, please contact me as soon as you know so that I can get it filled.
If you have signed up to donate a $30 Walmart gift card, please write your name on it and put it in the payment box at the pool by Thursday night at the end of practice.
If you were not able to get many spots to work at this meet, please do not worry. We will need a lot more people to work the meet in January as it has 7 sessions while the Jingle Bell Meet only has 5.
