Dear VJO Swimmers and Parents,
Piranha Meet Recap
Great Job VJO Swimmers! The team took 22 swimmers to the Piranha Meet last Saturday April 21st at the Honeybee Pool in Rohnert Park. We lucked out with some great sunny weather and it definitely helped our team swim fast. We had some outstanding swims. A list of the complete results from the meet is attached. The results will also be posted on both the swim connection and pacific swimming web site in the next couple days.

In addition to going over the dates of the upcoming year, discussing practice and meet expectations, and reviewing the required hours for parental involvement in home meets, we will be voting on two new board positions.
