Team Update

Jason is currently at USMS Nationals in Mesa, AZ.  He completed his first day of competition yesterday and did great.  He is swimming 2 events a day for 3 days.  On Day 1 he swam the 50 fly and the 200 back.  He got a best time in his 50 fly (26.8) which is GREAT!  His 200 back went well (2:19) but as he told me after the race, "as for the 200 back, It's dead to me!"  I think he is done swimming that event!  I'll keep you posted as I hear more, but it sounds like an incredible facility they are swimming at.

While Jason is having a great time in Mesa, AZ some other exciting things are happening right here in our own pool! This morning, Marlene for the first time ever in practice, swam 2000 yards! She finished swimming today about 125 yards short of that and her lane mate, Dan got her back in the water to complete 2000 yards.

This is a great example of how we can all help each other achieve great things when we work together.   It's SO GREAT to be part of a team!

Nice job guys!

See you in the pool,
Coach Steve

Saturday's Practice

In case you didn't check your email...

Hello Masters,

Due to the birth of Steve's son, practice this Saturday morning will take place at NORTH from 7-8am. You will be sharing the pool with the high school swimmers. It might be a bit crowded, but we will manage. If you care to, you are welcome to swim with the high schoolers and do their practice, or use what Steve has posted. Steve will be back next Thursday for more fun. Thanks and I will see you there.
