Today is Monday, March 10th and this is the MAC News.
Congratulations to all of our swimmers who competed in the Junior All-Star Meet this past weekend. There were lots of best times! MAC had two top finishers at the meet. Anna Minnick won the 13 year old girls 500 free and Kevin Roeder took top honors in the 16 and over boys 100 and 200 fly and the 200 back. Kevin also earned several All-Star qualifying times which should be good for next year! Way to go!
We would like to thank Terri Kolovich who has volunteered to take over keeping our website records up to date. Kanan Hudhud has also offered to help with the posting of photos from recent meets. If you have any photos you'd like included in our photo gallery, please e-mail them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If your swimmer ended up with an extra pair of black MAC shorts after the All-Star meet in Annapolis, they probably belong to the Colkets. Please contact Ellen Colket at EColket@jmj.com.
