Great job this weekend at the South Bay meet. It truly is an impressive facility: 2 50 meter pools (8, 10 lanes) and a 6 lane 25 yard pool. A LOT of impressive swims: new team records, new JO cuts, no DQ's, and so many best times. Thank you to the parents who volunteered to time and officiate!
Thank you to all of the families who traveled out to Imperial Valley for the Brawley ABC long course meet. I hope everyone had a great weekend! The swimmers did a fantastic job in the pool, with several new team records, a LOT of best times, and two bags full of awards (to be distributed this week). The IVDA team, as always, did a wonderful job: opening the pool for Friday practice and spaghetti dinner, DJ and raffles, and the bowling night. And of course there were the mysterious gremlins who always appear at travel meets and cause mischief, this time to both coach John's car and room. He will be ready next travel meet!
I can not express properly my appreciation to all of the swim families who helped put on the snack bar and hospitality these past 2 weekends for Senior Classic and Junior Olympics. Your sacrifice and commitment to our team (and the entire San Diego swim community) is greatly appreciated and recognized by so many. We received compliments from numerous parents, officials, coaches, and the pool staff -
In the water, we had great swims and battled to the end (down to the relays on Sunday night) with Heartland and Manta Rays for a team trophy. Unfortunately, we dropped to ninth place and just missed. But it will serve as motivation to train harder, get faster, and earn a trophy next year. Results for all swims (including relays) can be found on the Meet Schudule tab above.
THANK YOU to all of our Renegade swim families and VC Optimist Club members who helped run the hospitality and snack bar at this past weekend's Senior Classic. Your dedication to the team and willingness to represent the San Diego LSC is greatly appreciated!
We will again be taking on both responsibilities this weekend at Short Course Junior Olympics. If you are available to help at the meet either Saturday or Sunday at Coronado High School, we would be very grateful. Weather is expected to be on the chilly side, so please dress accordingly.
