WEST Weekly

Good Morning WESTies,

Wow what a weekend WEST has had at Pasco! We had many swimmers achieve best times in their individual events, but we want to send a shout out to Senior Elite swimmer Brandon Stride for obtaining his Olympic Trials cut in the 200 meter breaststroke by .02 , with a final time of 2:17.87! Stride also earned the meet record for the Tri-City Open this weekend. Amazing job! For more photos of the Tri-Cities meet, please visit our Facebook page where we will be uploading any parent-submitted photos. Read on for more important info!

Reminder: Double check our upcoming meets here. If any changes need to be made to June Jubilee specifically, please contact your group coach and bryan@westswimteam.com to make changes. June Jubilee will also be a major opportunity to complete volunteer hours and we will need all hands on deck at KCAC. Finally, we have confirmed that WEST will host 2 summer league meets here at WEST on Wednesday July 10 & 24th at 6:30pm. Any parents wishing to volunteer can do so at those meets. Summer League meets will be uploaded to our Events page when we have finalized other meets with neighboring teams.

We are still awaiting women’s jackets to be sent to WEST, and once they are in all orders can be picked up from the front office during office hours. We will send out an email announcement when they have arrived.
