Concerning Tuesday.  The boys should know how I am handling attendance ask them.  If they don't know then they need to pay better attention.

South Elgin Results

Last night we had our first meet of the year.  While South Elgin is obviously a bit of a drive, they are a good measuring stick of how far the team has come in the past few years.  South Elgin is in their very first year of a team, and I have to believe that only 3 years ago that is where this team was....

Moving forward final score of 123-47.  We won all but 1 event.

Varsity winners were.

First Meet and First Conference Meet of the year.

First off.  Congrats to the Blue team for pulling out the win in the intersquad meet on Saturday.  Lots of solid swimming all around, but Blue team pulled it out with a bit more depth(even though they won less events).

First, morning practice this week is West on Monday and Friday.  We are at South on Wednesday.  Saturday is at the tower at 9:30am at this time.  We may have to move practice to 9am.  I will let you know.

There are 2 meets this week.  First on Tuesday we are at South Elgin high school.  The meet is scheduled to start at 5pm, I do not know if they have diving.  I have had no communication with the coach, so I have no further information.

On Friday we will be at OPRF high school.  Meet is scheduled to start at 5pm.  Should be an extremely quick meet as they are also a relatively small team and will not have diving.

For both meets the athletes need to leave immediately after school.  We will be having practice before the meet.  We will be starting practice at 3:50pm at both meets.  Being late to this practice will be the same as being late any other time and costs a loss of attendance.  For attendance purposes all meets will count as 3 hours, regardless of length.

Finally, I am not waving attendance for the first meet.  There are no athletes that would be sitting that didn't choose to miss a practice, as such there is no reason to wave it.

Break schedule.....Dryland 7:30-8:30 location TBA.  Swim 9:30-11:30.  Xmas Eve - Swim only 9:30-11:30(I am figuring out how to handle attendance here boys will be told).  Calendar has been updated.

Intersquad Week Update


Current Score through the first 3 days.

Green - 24
Blue - 11

Quick Recap- Monday we did the Relay Challenge.  Each team won 1 then the Boat Race remained undefeated.  Tuesday we ended up playing ultimate in the pool.  This is normally the highlight of the week and the boys delivered a great first half of 3-3 before Green opened it up to 7-3 in the second half.  Today we did the dryland races which came down to the very end, but Green finally pulled away in the end to net another 5 points.

For Saturday we will be running the intersquad in normal practice.  It will be treated similar to a Saturday meet warm-up and meet only.  You are welcome to come watch, but there is no deck space, so you will be stuck watching from the windows.

Quick note about next week's meets.  Everyone needs to leave immediately after school.  Once we get to the pool we will be having a practice before the meets start.

Inclement Weather Plan

For AM practices.

I will make the decision at about 5:30am.  In case of cancelling text will go to Captains who will inform the rest of the team.  I will also post on blog and facebook.

After School

Bit more complicated and will be done by ear.  Heavily dependent on if the school cancels early.

Intrasquad Week

Not a whole lot of information for me to pass along this week.  Morning Schedule is Mon-West/Wed-South/Fri-South. So without further ado...

There is no meet this week.  Hinsdale South changed the date, and I was never told.  Our first meet is next Tuesday at South Elgin.

I still don't have the Winter Break Schedule figured out.  I am waiting for a confirmation on what time we can get in the pool.  Once I have that I can figure out the gym schedule to go with it.  Any time is possible between 5am and 2:30pm.

Finally, the big news for the week.  The return of INTRASQUAD WEEK! 

Schedule is as follows...
Monday - Relays
Tuesday - Trivia
Wednesday - Dryland Challenge
Thursday - Ultimate
Friday - TBA
Saturday Intrasquad meet - More Info to be coming

As a reminder, teams are for life, so all I have to do is add freshman.... Current Record = Green 1-Blue 0
