Great meet!

Huge thank you to all the volunteers and donators who help make it happen!

Some Quick Notes:

  • Congratulations to Alex Richardson!  He broke yet another record tonight, making it a hat-trick this season.  Alex broke the 100 backstroke record previously set in 1983.
  • Also did you see Coach Cydney Eastman swim tonight?  She broke the NCST record for the 50 free – previously set in 1990.
  • Great job you two!  This has been an exciting season!
  • Are you in the Platinum Group?  Practice is cancelled tomorrow, but instead you need to do some chores around the house to help out your parents.  Enjoy the weekend!
  • Make sure you check out the team calendar for practices next week.  Basically, practice until your Championship Meet.
  • Championship opt-outs due tomorrow morning by 10:00 AM Sharp!  Make sure you check out the updated times below.

Finally, here are the results.  Hope you’ve seen some time improvements this season.

Some Notes about the Championships.

  1. We have updated start times for the A Meets.  See below.
  2. Our entries for both the A and B Championship Meets are due right away, so we need to know if you are attending or not.
  3. And yes, you may not know which meet you have qualified for until after tonight’s meet.  We’ll do our best to get the qualifiers out as soon as possible.

  • Your swimmer will compete in only one Championship Meet – either the A or B.
  • If your swimmer is 13 or over, he or she will attend the A meet.
  • If your swimmer is 12 or under and not on the list of A meet qualifiers, he or she will attend the B meet.
  • A meets are away meets – see locations.

More Meet Information

  • Because they include so many teams, the conference meets are run differently than regular dual meets.  We will be competing with many other teams in our half of the West Michigan Swim League.  This also means they run a little longer – so be prepared.
  • At the B meet, there is no medley relay, only a freestyle relay.  Swimmers are allowed to swim 1 relay and 2 individual events.  However, each team may only enter 1 relay, so only 4 swimmers in each age/gender group will swim in a relay.
  • Everyone will be entered in their 2 individual events.
  • Swimmers may only swim events for which they have a seed time.
  • Because there are several officials at conference meets, disqualifications will be called on the technical aspects of each stroke, i.e., illegal kicks (common in breaststroke and butterfly).  Therefore, most swimmers will be entered in freestyle and backstroke events.
  • Generally, the Championship Meet signals the end of practices for your athlete.
