Great job to all of the swimmers at our first SAL meet of the season! There were several hiccups that caused a delay to the meet and also kept us from getting events out to swimmers and parents in a timely manner. Thank you to the swimmers for adjusting and going with it and making the best of a tough situation (and swimming really well). Next week will be a regular meet and we will get the bumps worked out going forward. Thank you to all of the volunteers, and a special thank you to the table workers who got the meet up and running as quickly as possible.

Great meet for a lot of our swimmers as we start out the season 1-0! Let’s keep up the great work.
One thing we need to work on as a team is staying until the end of the meet in case you are in a relay. There were several relays missing one or two members of their team, which caused us to scratch a couple relays at the end. It’s not fair to your teammates that waited around for their last event and ultimately didn’t even get to swim in it.
Pool water was cold but our swims were "HOT". Had time drops across the board. Everyone is looking really good. I can tell the swimmers are working hard.
We still have lots to work on:
- Not breathing every stroke.
- Trying not to circle swim. Stay on the black line.
- Get your stroke counts down in backstroke.
We had several swimmers today swim in the 200 free for the first time. Super proud of everyone trying new events.
Great job to all of our swimmers who participated in the HHAA pentathlon. These swimmers had a chance to display their versatility as they competed in every stroke. Shout out to Rachael Minnerly, Evan Martin, and Aurora Schadler for each getting top 5 in their age groups after adding up the score of all five of their events.
Have a Great Week,
PVAC Board Members & Coaches
