Sam Starr, Megan Morris, Brittany Sicard, Elise Roberts and Nicholas Meyer will represent the Napa Valley Swim Team at the California/Nevada Senior Section Swimming Championships in Long Beach this weekend.
The Senior Section meet is held twice annually, one time in the long-course season and one time during the short-course season, and it is the championship meet for the fastest swimmers throughout California and Nevada.
The Section meet is being conducted in the standard 25-yard short-course configuration, and is being hosted at the historic Belmont Plaza Pool, site of the 1968 and 1976 U.S. Olympic Trials.
World-class swimmers frequently use the Section meet as a tune-up meet, and up-and-comers use it as a stepping stone to national and international competition.
The meet will feature more than 1,000 athletes representing over 300 teams from throughout the two states.
