Volunteers Needed for PCST Swim Meet This Weekend!
The PCST Speedo May Swim Meet will be held this weekend at Frank Brown Park.  We take great pride in hosting some of the finest competitions in the Southeast.  Hosting these meets helps to keep our fees low and saves us having to travel to competitions and spend money on hotels, etc…  In order to run these meets we need many volunteers, especially timers.  If you can help this weekend, please sign up online at the following link:  https://www.teamunify.com/team/sepcst/controller/cms/admin/index#/calendar-team-events/job:1003850

Mosley Pool Reopens Tuesday May 14!
The Mosley Pool will reopen to PCST on Tuesday May 14.  A big thanks to everyone at the school district who helped get the pool back open for us.
