Friendship Meet, Design Contest and a Scholarship!

    Congratulations to all our Wahoos on a great regular season! Division points may be complete but we're not finished yet!

    Tomorrow night's meet is a "friendship meet" or "B meet", meaning points don't count toward our Division standings but everything runs the same. Any time from a swimmer at this meet, the 8 & under mini meet this weekend, or next week's friendship meet can still qualify kids for the GPSA Championship Meet (City Meet) at the end of the season! Because the goal is to give kids as many opportunities for qualifying times as possible, there will likely be extra heats, extra relays, etc.

    Details for Friendship Meet at JRCC:

    Location: James River Country Club, 1500 Country Club Rd, Newport News
    Time: 6:00pm
    Arrival Time: 4:45pm
    Warm Ups: 5:15pm
    There are a few volunteer slots still available!

    (Please note I will note be at this meet or the Superhero Splashdown this weekend. SaraLynn will be serving as GPSA Rep on deck in my absence and Christina will be helping with emails and relaying information!)
