Registrations for 2008
All swimmers must be registered with USA swimming by the end of the month to swim next year. If you intend to enter the Q-Meet in early January you must have your registration in to the SI swim office by December 21st. Just print out the attached form, and mail it to SI swim with your check.
Note: If you registered after September 7th of 2007 - your registration is a 2008 registration.
I didn't like the fact that I was going to be away while we hosted a meet. I heard great reports that the meet went off without a hitch. A big thank you to all of you who volunteered! Hopefully our next meet (B/C meet at Helix HS in January)we will do without the rain.
Short Course National Championships
During the IMX meet, I was in Atlanta, Georgia with 2 of our swimmers at Short Course Nationals. Justin Difederico and Jessica Heim competed in their first Senior National meet. Most of the USA's top swimmers were there including many american and world record holders. We were lucky enough to watch 4 american records set at the meet. Ryan Lochte set records in the 200 back and 200 IM, while Natalie Coughlin set records in the 50 and 100 Freestyles.
Being their first Senior Nationals, Justin and Jessi did very well. Justin finished 43rd in the 200 fly, and Jessi finished 81st in the 200 Free. They went into their events seeded 76th, and 127th. Great Job!
