This is the MAC News for Thursday, February 7th.
The meet notice for the Maryland Swimming LSC Championship Meet, Feb. 28 - March 2, (www.mdswim.org/Schedule/2008_Maryland_All_star_Championship_meet_PTLrevisions012208.doc) has been posted. This meet is open to any swimmer who meets the qualifying standards listed in the meet notice. All entries, along with a check to cover the fees, are due to the meet entry folder by 6:00 pm Tuesday, February 12th. The fees are $5.50 per event plus the $3.00 surcharge. Don't forget, if your swimmer is attending the GBSA Last Chance meet next weekend, please be sure that any new LSC Championship cuts achieved are reported to the coach on deck so they may be added to our team's entries. The coaching staff will do its best not to miss anyone, but, with so many swimmers we want to be sure no one is left out who deserves a chance to swim at the LSC Championship meet. The qualifying times may be found here - www.mdswim.org/Athletes/08MDSTATEQUALIFYINGTIMES.pdf. Swimmers 14 & under should have bag tags with the qualifying times on them as well.
