MSSC saw a weekend of great swimming and many best times at our 18th Annual Spring Championships!
We came in third place among medium sized teams, scoring 2,356 points. This score was 5th overall out of the 15 teams which participated this last weekend at Fairland. What a tremendous way to wrap up the short course season! Many thanks to the coaches for all of the training and instruction this season.
Of course it requires so many parents to run a great meet - Samir Thakkar, once again, put in hours of hard work coordinating the snack bar. Jeanann Bowles, Cleo Stewart and Jen Hendershot pulled together wonderful and plentiful hospitality for our officials and coaches. And Hope Oehler made sure we had fair competition by putting together a full complement of USA Swimming Officials, from the visiting teams, as well as many wonderful individuals who stay involved in our sport and support MSSC.
Many thanks to all the parents who donated food, worked their sessions and patiently worked different assignments as we juggled people around to be sure all slots were filled. Gary Buda, Rob Scheller, Mehul Parekh and Will Bowles together covered all sessions of the meet as Head Timers, organizing all of those timers to make sure we obtained back up times for each and every swimmer. Thank you so much!!
I hope everyone has a safe and relaxing Spring Break which for MSSC starts on Friday March 25 and end Sunday April 3. (Regular practice Monday –Thursday of this week)
Then we spring into Long Course Season!
