Congratulations on a great weekend of swimming! We had an amazing amount of lifetime best swims dropping in over 800 swims total as a team! Thanks to all of our wonderful parents who stepped up to volunteer and help run this giganitic meet (5611 swims and 36+ hours of swim meet). We had many parents who worked multiple shifts to help make this meet run very well.
Thanks so much to the following people who went over and above this past weekend: Valerie Rivir-Saurine for her many many hours coordinating the volunteers; Joe Waller, Rich Decker & Gary Willis for coordinating the officials; Jewell Folta and her crew for putting together a fantastic hospitality room; Geoff and Tanya Thatcher and his crew who ran a very organized Clerk of Course; Penny Franzoni and her crew for the great job in awards; our entire databoard and computer tabler crew; and Nancy Young for putting together the heat sheet! Thank you to Carolyn Brandwein for putting together a successful Team Spirit Wear sale. This is just a small list of the many key volunteers for this meet.
Thanks also to our officials, many of whom worked multiple sessions and everyone else who helped: time, work concessions and hospitality, run, work on deck, meet setup, meet cleanup and locker room/commons patrol.
We are fortunate to have so many people who truly care about this team and put in the time and effort! Go Rays!
