Sectional Week

We are only 5 days away from Sectionals!!!

There are only a couple of notes about the schedule for this week.

First we are having dryland on Tuesday.  So we will be out of the pool closer to 6 than to 5.

I have contacted Proviso West about possibly using their pool on  Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.  The coach has approved but needs to run it by the AD first.  I will let you know as soon as I can.  This would be a good way to practice start and relay exchanges before the meet.  The boys team from PW will be using the pool so that is out, onto the next option.

We will be taking the bus from West on Saturday.  Bus will leave at 11am.  Meet starts at 1pm.  Girl's not competeting are still expected to be at the meet.  Please get their early so that you get good seats/can try to get on deck.
