SHOR NewsWaves -Feb. 2021


End of Season Meets:

The last few meets of the Short Course Season are posted. LAKE is closed, but we do have a triangular with EBSC and RA (deadline 2/14). It is essentially one meet using the Regional format, with two hosts and two sites. The 12&U and 13&O State Meets are also posted, and the deadline is early (2/8). The hosts need a “numbers” estimate to plan with the necessary facility guidelines. Please do not commit unless you already have a standard. New time standards achieved after this date will be accepted in the meet.

Practice Schedule:

As indicated earlier, there will be a different practice schedule that last few weeks of the season. We have less access to the VHE Pool on T/Th due to swim lessons, and the Boy’s HS season is finishing up. In addition, the SHS Pool will be closed for construction starting March 1st. The WSL group will finish practices 2/19. The schedules are posted in the News section of the website.

Grant, Will, Johan, Bennett and James are first time qualifiers, while Nick, Kyle, Andrew, Adi, Aiden and Thomson are grizzled veterans of the meet. Only the Top 16 qualify in each event, so it is a fantastic accomplishment to even qualify for the meet, especially the freshmen Will, Johan, Bennett and James. We are looking forward to having the boys back at SHOR practice on Monday!
