WOW!  We finished up our Divisionals Seed Meeting with all the other teams last night and received some additional info to share with you.

    3. Timers First Half:  Jamie Groves, Courtney Von Tersch and Julie Williams (lanes 1, 2 & 3)
    4. Timers Second Half:  Ren Kalb & Deirdre Walters (lanes 1 & 2)
    5. Zookeeper:  Paula Harville
    6. Ribbons:  Lee Reese

Ribbons from this season.  The league ran out of ribbons and had to reorder them.  They came in today and the president has told me she will get them to me tomorrow so I’m working to finish up all the outstanding ribbons for the season (all those first and second placers!!) and bring the ribbon box to Divisionals so you can take them with you.  Lee and volunteers from each team will work on the Divisonal ribbons during the meet so I will have them before I leave.  (if everything works to plan and the creeks don’t rise. . . )  Thank you for your patience!!

Let me know if you have any other questions.  Looking forward to a great morning!
