Good Afternoon,  

This is a short news splash as we are gearing up for the big meet at Freedom this weekend and then turning around and finishing up with the meet at CPAC on Monday.  In case you had not heard, we will be using CPAC for a meet on Monday so there will not be any practices available at CPAC throughout the day and evening (although holding out hope that we can offer the IMX group from MC something after 7pm depending if the meet finishes at a reasonable time). 

The 13 & over swimmers take to the pool this weekend for the DMV Senior Showcase meet.  The meet should have some very fast swimming, watch the finals at home each evening with your young kids for some fun!

If you’re looking to help with the meet this weekend, we have some volunteer positions that still need to be filled

There was one new team record set last weekend among the amazing results of the President’s Day Classic.  Alex Grocholski (12) improved his own team record in the 500 free setting the mark at 5:04.10 for the 11-12 boys all time top swim. 

I’ll share more information next week regarding the track of meets that we’ll be offering in March.  There will be a place for everyone to compete and we are excited for the exciting conclusion of the short course racing season. 

One more note: Meals for hospitality at the swim meet will be provided by @ Cousins Cookin from their food truck.  You’ll see them parked in the CPAC parking lot (long story about Freedom/ GMU and not allowing vendors) in the morning tomorrow if you’re at CPAC for practices.  They ARE open for business walk ups.  They will have some amazing hot fresh breakfast sandwiches for you while you wait for your kids to finish practice or for your kids after their practice is done.  Check them out and support another OCCS friend!
