Coach Porter (Summit, '06) with GWG:

Swimmers will wear their own suits for the Maroon/Black meet Saturday.

Saturday's order of events is slightly different from a normal dual meet. We'll alternate girls' heats (THS followed by SHS) with boys' heats in the following order:

200 Medley Relay
200 Freestyle
200 I.M.
50 Freestyle
100 Butterfly
100 Freestyle
100 Backstroke
100 Breaststroke
200 Freestyle Relay

Each swimmer may enter a maximum of two (2) individual and two (2) relay events. Each team may enter a maximum of three (3) swimmers/relays per event. 1st through third place relays will be scored 8-4-2. 1st through fifth place individuals will be scored 6-4-3-2-1.

Captains will help with warm-up, set line-ups, and coach for their teams in Saturday's Maroon/Black meet. Coach Salazar and I will announce team scores and start events.

I'll be available at the pool from 12:30 to 1:30 Saturday to meet with any parents that were unable to attend our parent meetings.

We'll issue meet suits, drag suits, warm-ups, and backpacks in time for the October 11 home meet vs. Cedar Hill. Swimmers and diver, please let me know your sizes ASAP. We need suit, warm-up top, and warm-up bottom sizes.

This year, both styles of team caps are black. We'll issue regular latex team caps in time for our first meet. Anyone wishing to purchase the special order silicon team cap may do so for $5.

There is no one magic move or secret that
creates victory, but lots of little items that
when added together can make you victorious.

If you'd like to purchase your drag suit, they're $25 each. We still have some new suits available.

Check out Kathleen Hersey in the 200 meter fly. Makin' it look easy!
