Juniors, Wilds, and Seniors will be having a combined practice on Wednesday, July 4th from 7:15 - 9:15 am at SAC. For those swimmers in town, it will be a great opportunity for some team fun. There will be a short warm-up and drill session and then swimmers will interact and play some water games. If your swimmer has a floatie, please bring it!
Hawgs and Rookie Hawgs will not practice on Wednesday. Everyone have a safe and fun Independence Day and we will see you back at practice on Thursday.

This will be our last meet in a 50-meter pool until State Champs, and this is the pool where Champs will be held. Your swimmer needs to be in this meet! This meet is recommended for Hawgs, Junior Hawgs, Wild Hawgs, and Senior Hawgs. Deadline is TOMORROW, Tuesday, July 3rd, so make your commitment now!
LAST CHANCE MEET - Our team will host a Last Chance Meet on Saturday, July 21stat The Jones Center for swimmers who are reasonably close to earning a state meet cut.
