Greenbriar Dolphins - Week 8 News

Dan Klanderman

There is almost nothing more exciting than a close swim meet, and ours yesterday against the Dunn Loring Dolphins couldn’t have been any closer.  It was a tie with each team getting 210 of the possible 420 points.  While it doesn’t happen every week, it is not uncommon.  Congratulations to our Dolphin coaches and swimmers thanks for the nailbitier of a meet.  Congratulations as well to Jack Renner for improving on his record 13/14 50M Breaststroke record  Thank you to all the parents who made our final home Saturday meet a success, as well as our Swim and Dive Team late night event last night!

It’s hard to believe we are heading into the final week of the regular season.  Here’s what is going on.

Monday Night Home Meet: Sully Station @ Greenbriar

Tomorrow evening we host Sully Station at our pool.  This is our final home meet of the season.  We have over 100 of our own swimmers entered in to the meet along with the 90 or so from Sully Station so it’s going to be a big meet.  It’s also the meet where we swim the Individual Medley first so many of the swimmers will be attempting their first IM tomorrow night.  We have several positions we still need to fill, especially setting up at 4PM when the pool closes, so please head on over to the Event Page and click the “Job Signup” to select an open spot your family can complete for the team (https://www.teamunify.com/EventShow.jsp?team=recnvslgst&id=1052396).

Pep Rally Friday

Our final Pep Rally of the season is this coming Friday night.  The theme is “Decades” where swimmers, coaches, and parents dress up to blend in to their favorite decade.  Peg your pants, slick back your hair, or wear your tie-dye to celebrate the fun.  This is also the week where the team orders pizza for the team.  To that end, please help us estimate the needed number of pizzas by declaring your swimmers for this event on the Event Signup page.  https://www.teamunify.com/EventShow.jsp?team=recnvslgst&id=1052391
