Flying Dolphins News Flash

July 13, 2021

SMI 2021:   Thank you coaches, parents and swimmers for a great SMI.  So many teams congratulated us on a meet well run.  For many swimmers, and I hope Dolphins included, this is their favorite meet of the year.  Dolphin swimmers, Jack Fugate, Molly Lowe, and Jackson Lowe made the cover of the Daily Times on the Sunday and Monday editions.  Many swimmers were named including our top 3 podium finishers – Cayia Titsworth for the 8 and under 25 fly and the girls 9-10 medley relay: Madelyn Rupp, Cortlyn Titsworth, Lucy Hone and Krislyn Kaeser.  If you have not seen the articles, please check them out:

MAFD @ Lenoir City Bettas:  Friday is our next dual meet against the Lenoir City Bettas.  Registration is open through tonight, July 13 at midnight.  We have 43 swimmers signed up to date.  Our coaches would love to see 60 swimmers attend.  Remember, the more swimmers = better chances to pull off our second win of the season. While you are registering, please do not forget to sign up for a volunteer position. 

Dolphin Merchandise:   2021 Merchandise is back on sale by popular demand.  The online store will only be available from today through Midnight on July 15th.  Please use the link below or on our website under the merchandise tab.  Remember the Dolphins do receive a small percentage of all purchase.  Your support is greatly appreciated!

City Meet:   The GKAISA city meet is the final opportunity to compete every season.  It is divided into preliminary and final sessions.  10 and under swimmers compete on Thursday July 29th, 11 and up on Friday July 30th and the Finals for all age groups are on Saturday July 31st.  The top 16 swimmers/relay teams return on Saturday for finals.  Please note many swimmers return as part of relays even if they do not make the cut in an individual event.  The meet is larger than SMI, but because it is held at UT’s Alan Jones Aquatic Center boys and girls compete simultaneously in pools that are side by side.  Registration forms for the meet are attached and will be available at all practices and at Friday’s meet.  Registration closes on this Friday July 16th. The cost is 15$ per swimmer and there are parking fees, incase you do not want to walk from the free lot.  If you cannot get a check or cash to us by Friday, please complete the forms anyway and we will get your swimmer entered.
