There were many great swims in the afternoon, but we are still waiting for the official results to post.

It was a looooong, but successful meet. I know there were some hiccups. Flint was not prepared (but they were very grateful) for our large entry. During the COVID pandemic, we lost several Y teams. The teams that are left are struggling to figure out how to run a successful meet without losing money. I am so grateful to our board for ensuring that our meets run well!

We have distributed goal sheets. Now that we have had two meets, swimmers are encouraged to fill them out with their new times and bring them to a practice in a plastic bag with a pen and coaches will review their progress and help them set goals for the future.
