To everyone for some outstanding results at the Regional Championships in St.Catherines last weekend. LAC swimmers did personal bests in over 200 races, a very respectable 60% conversion rate; 37 swimmers collected 84 individual medals (25G-31S-28B) and we had an additional 77 finishes in the top 8. Whether you were racing for 1st or racing for 7th, every LAC'er showed heart and determination throughout the weekend, and we easily showed the most team spirit, including our parents up in the stands!

DR PAUL HAUCH INVITATIONAL

DR PAUL HAUCH INVITATIONAL
Our 34th Annual Dr. Paul Hauch Invitational Swim Meet is fast approaching! We need your help. This is our final event and a great end to the swim season. It is meant to be just a lot of fun!
In that regard, we are asking swim families to donate prizes that will be given out to the heat winner of randomly selected “bell” heats throughout the weekend. Swimmers get excited when they hear a bell ring just before their heat and try really hard to win so they can get a prize. Popular items that have been donated in the past are: towels, gift cards, beach toys, toiletries, tote bags, water bottles, games, caps, t-shirts; etc. Gifts should be worth between $5 and $10 each.
Families in Development and Orange should give their items to the coaches; families in Blue, Gold, Y, YN and HP can give them directly to me anytime at the pool. Please have your items in as soon as possible and no later than June 24 to allow me time to sort and organize.
Thank you so much for helping make this the best swim meet of the season!
Sheri Cappa, Meet Manager, 2011 Dr. Paul Hauch Invitational Swim Meet
