Schedule and Announcements for 2/10 – 2/16
Weekly Highlights & Notes
What an AMAZING Sunflower Championship Meet!
The Boys Team moved up one place from last year, had 4 times more entries into finals, has 4.5x more State Qualifying and Consideration times and 98% of the boys had Personal Bests during the meet.
While it was hard to see so many miss finals by just a bit (there were so many 17th and 18th spots), it is exciting to see so much young talent and the future of Raider Swim.
We will know the final list of State Entries (we have lots of boys in consideration) in another week. Once the final list is approved, it will be posted to the website.
This week and next week it will just be the State Team that will be practicing at SMS and SMDAC.
State Team: Sam Aldeguer, Jacob Held, Tim Holmes, Nathan Snyder, Owen Krussow, Charlie Krause, Ryan Owens, Carson Guthrie, and Joe Barreca.
State Parent Communication: Expect an email this week with volunteer opportunities for team lunches, team snacks, state t-shirts, and final team dinner.
Please see the times and locations below.

Boys Booster Club Coach’s Gift
The Boys Booster Club is THRILLED to be providing an LED Pace Clock to the Swim Team.
This year the boys have been without an LED Pace Clock. A pace clock is essential in Race-Based Practices to allow the swimmer to know if they are hitting their mark or not.
Coach Berg will be ordering the clock soon and looks forward to using this clock at the end of the boy’s season and for many more seasons to come.
Thank you for supporting SMS Boys Swim with your Booster Club Fees.
Boys Swim Shutterfly Account
We have an official Boys Swim and Dive Shutterfly Account for any pictures you would like to share. The team loves seeing pictures of themselves and as more photos are added, we will share them on the website. (There are some amazing photos from Gabe!)
The password will be sent via email this week.
