Swimmers & Families,

It’s time for our last home meet of the season!  Tomorrow we swim vs Lake Linganore at MHS.  One special thing about this meet is that we are having a food drive to benefit the Food Pantry. You are more than welcome to participate!  We are asking for donations of non-perishable foods, and if we get more than 100 items donated, swimmers can throw the coaches into the pool at the end of the meet.  This is a nice way for the Barracudas to give back to the community.  Here’s what you need to know about the meet this weekend:

  • Please arrive at MHS by 6:45am.    
  • Volunteers should arrive earlier if necessary for meet setup.
  • Swimmers should check in right away at check-in tent.  If you are late,  check-in immediately AFTER warmups.
  • Check relay lists to see if you are swimming or are an alternate
  • Warm-ups are: 9-12 year olds 7:00-7:10;  13 – Older & 8-Under 7:10 – 7:20, then full team dive sprints until 7:25am.

  • We also ask that no cell phones be used in the locker rooms and no cameras behind the swim blocks.
