Regional Meet - Preview

118 Marlin teammates will be competing in this weekend's Ohio Swimming Regional Championships at Keating!  The psych sheet is available now, and specific warm-up schedules & timelines will be posted later in the week.  Prelims warm-up will start Fri, Sat, and Sun at 7 am & finals warm-up will begin at 4:30.

**Important Note for ages 10 & under:  The top 16 swimmers in each event swim at night, places 17th and below swim in the morning.  As a 10 & under swimmer, each event is ONLY swum once (ie, not in the morning & evening).  If your swimmer is only competing at night on a certain day & would prefer NOT to swim on a morning relay, simply reply to Coach Ryan when relay lineups are sent later in the week.  Thanks to all who have sent already!
