This is the MAC News for Tuesday, July 15th.
Congratulations to everyone who competed in the NBAC meet this weekend. MAC had 2 top finishers - Jacy Icard won the 11-12 girls 50 backstroke and Margot Manning took top honors in the 13-14 girls 50 free. In addition, 3 new team records were set. Jacy's winning time in the 50 backstroke broke the team record which was set back in 1992! Joanna Yeh broke both the 15-16 and Open girls 400 free records - the 15-16 girls record has been held since 1991! Way to go!!!
The only groups left to practice today will be the Novice groups. Novice II and III will swim from 5:00-6:15 pm and Novice I from 6:00-7:15 pm in the indoor pool at Hood. There is no Senior Prep or Masters practice today as they swam yesterday instead.
Mitch Reynolds is missing his 2007 Zones T-shirt and red/black and white 2007 Zones shorts. Both were left at the Whittier Pool on Thursday morning (7/10). If another MAC parent picked these up, please e-mail Deb at email@example.com, so she can pick them up from you. (His name should be on both the shorts and shirt).
If you took the summer off and are planning to return to the team in the fall, please notify Fred Manning (firstname.lastname@example.org) of your intentions so that a spot may be held for your swimmer(s).
MAC is pleased to announce four dates for new swimmer tryouts. If you know of anyone interested in giving MAC a try, please pass along this information:
