Metros Information

In order to participate in this meet, swimmers and divers have to achieve qualifying times (or # of dives learned).  If your athlete has qualified, he/she has already been informed.  In two weeks we go to Regionals.  In general, this is the 2 fastest swimmers per event (though there is a max. of 2 individual events and 2 relays per swimmer) and again, Divers must know a certain # of dives. Emily/Zick will most likely release a list of athletes participating in  Regionals next week. More info. about those 2 meets in next week’s notes.

Do not forget! The theme is HOLIDAY. Whether you celebrate Christmas, Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, Festivus, or nothing, you can still get into the holiday spirit, because you know….IT’S WINTER BREAK. Wear a santa hat, a thanksgivukkah tee-shirt, or a snowman sweater. Tis’ the season to be spirited!

First Dual Meet Against Churchill

Our first dual meet is on December 14th at Martin Luther King Swim Center (MLK) against Churchill. BE THERE AT 8:40. The theme is Ninjas. There will be consequences for those who do not make any effort for spirit. We will be keeping track. For Ninjas, bring an extra tee-shirt, preferably black, to the meet because you can make a ninja hood with it. You put the hole where your head goes through in front of your face and tie the shirt arms in a knot behind your head. Ninja stars are extra cool. GO BLAZERS.
