Due to the excessive flooding in our area, we have decided to cancel practice for tomorrow, Dec 30. The entire Rockwood School District will be closed as well. Our next practice is scheduled for Jan 4 from 3p-5p.
We finished 2nd place at the tri-meet Monday night against Ladue and Mehlville with 122 points. We were not too far behind Ladue with 146 and well above Mehlville with 46. We had some great swims and some errors but overall, we swam well. A number of swimmers earned their personal best times which is fantastic.
Today, Dec 15, is picture day right after school. Please bring your team suits. You will also have an opportunity to get individual pictures if desired.
Wednesday and Thursday this week we will have lunch in the pool area after school. Practice will run from 1pm-3pm. On Thursday, we will host our Secret Santa event.
Friday, swimmers will need to be at the pool by 4:45pm and ready for warmups at 5pm. The Quad meet will begin at 6pm. There should be some good competition against Eureka, Webster, and Lutheran South.
Please check the calendar online for practice times over the break.
It looked like the team had fun competing against each other. It was a close meet throughout and came down to the final relay to decide the winners. Black edged out Maroon with a score of 88-84.
Ultimately, this meet hopefully provided a helpful simulation for our new athletes and a reminder for our veteran athletes as we prepare for our first official dual meet. It also highlighted some skill and technique issues that some athletes have not quite mastered yet as well as some disqualification concerns we will need to address.
Our first meet is at Affton on Monday, Dec 7. The bus will leave immediately after school. For directions to the pool, check out our maps listed on our website.
The Girls Swim and Dive Team will be hosting our Maroon and Black Meet on Thursday at Summit starting at 4pm. Family and friends are invited to attend as the team competes against each other.
