SPEEDO SECTIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS: Greetings from Southern California!  We are doing well at the meet, ranked 8th in overall team points for the “small team” division and look forward to two last races today:
***Rilie- lifetime best and finalist in the 200 IM, finalist in the 200 Free and two more races this morning (100 Free and 100 Back)
***Ryan- team record, lifetime best and finalist in both the 50 Free and 100 Fly

DON’T FORGET TO PICKUP YOUR BOOK: I’ve recently read a book that was so powerful and quoteworthy that I purchased one for every family on our team.  Chop Wood Carry Water: How to Fall in Love with the Process of Becoming Great by Joshua Medcalf is such a wonderful book for the whole family with super short chapters and great conversation starting opportunities.  Please pick up your copy in the PHS or Crossgates pool offices (see the coaches if you need to pick one up.)   Happy Holidays!

HIGH SCHOOL SWIMMERS: If your high schooler has not filled out the form regarding the upcoming high school season, please do so ASAP.  We’d like to know if they will be dropping from BAY, splitting their time between the school program and BAY or are not joining their school team. Thank you in advance!

TRAINING CAMP: We are gearing up for the most amazing day of fun, hard work, creativity, delicious food and teamwork this Saturday!  We will meet all the RSVPed swimmers on the pool deck at 8am on 12/22.  Be sure to be in athletic shoes, suits and bring a towel and change of clothes.
