York Results, Friday, Saturday

Very quickly before getting into York Results.

Friday - ALL TICKETS ARE DUE, sold and unsold.  Any tickets not turned in are the responsibility of the athlete.

Saturday - No practice.  All pools unavailable at reasonable times.  This does mean everything going forward is getting looked at.

York Results.  For the most part we swam well off of our best events, and swam very well.  Extremely pleased with 400 Free relays(both JV and Varsity) as they were extremely fast, especially considering the temperature in the building.

Fundraiser Tickets Due This Week!

Before getting into what all is going on this week quick recap of the crazy week last week.

OPRF was a bit onesided, but we did have a number of good swims.

Event winners:
Jane Denenberg
Molly Rosenthal
Claire Ficarella

The LT F/S meet looked like it was a great experience for a number of athletes who normally don't get a chance to compete on Saturdays.  Outside of bus issues....

Point Scorers:
Isabel Kilinski
Claire Lohman
Kylie Miskovic
Ania Gniatczyk
Kate Kissane
Ella Riley
Melissa Gibson

The Wildcat Prelim/Final was our multi-day meet that the kids love.  We finished in 4th place and would have easily been 3rd if we didn't have a F/S meet on Saturday as well.  Given where I expected to finish that is a huge improvement.  Special note to the relays, as they were all fantastic.

Moving Forward to this week

Wednesday night we have our dual meet with York.  Meet starts at 5pm.  We will be going South to West and then West to South on the way home.  They do diving first so swimming will likely be about 5:20pm

Tuesday we need any tickets that have been sold for the fundraiser turned in.

Friday all tickets(sold and unsold) must be turned in.  Athletes will be responsible for costs of any tickets not returned.

Assignments for who is working when next week will be at practice no later than Friday.

Varsity practice is still TBA.  We are still looking for a pool.

Thursday - OPRF Dual meet @ OPRF.  This is our longest car ride of the year.  The meet itself is always super fast(normally back on bus by 6:45p).  This is there Senior Night, so that will be a bit slower, but nothing dramatic.  All athletes are competing.  Bus West/South out and South/West back, 5pm start.

Friday - West Chicago Prelims. This will be a limited entry meet.  Roster should be at practice on Monday, Tuesday at latest.  Traditionally one of our best meets of the year.  Bus will go West/South out and West/South back. 5pm start.

Saturday- We have 2 meets! Rosters should be at practice on Monday.
 With a 7am call time @ Glenbard South, the F/S meet at Lions Township South.  Swimming starts at 10am and should be done around 12pm.

With an 11am call time @ Glenbard West, the finals of the West Chicago meet.  Meet starts at 1pm, and should be done around 3:30pm.

This is an extremely busy week, so please don't be afraid to ask questions.

Hinsdale Results

While the score was pretty rough, I was happy with a much better performance in the pool this week.  Felt like Varsity has had a decent week of swimming, and a solid meet performance was a nice cherry on top.

First Week Inside

Starting this week practice goes indoors to COD.  This means that we will be done at 4:30 daily.

Athletes not in a carpool will need to rush to the white busses immediately after school.

The biggest piece of news is that we will be rolling out all the fundraising stuff this week.  Right now I need everyone to fill out this form so that I can organize everyone for the fundraiser.  Tickets and a big write up will be handed out at practice.

Finally quick recap of the LT relays.  We did finish in a disappointing 8th place, far removed from our 5th place finish last year.  Obviously have a ton of work to do between now and the end of the season.

Bartlett Results

Pretty solid meet all around.  For the most part pretty solid swimming for a bunch of really tired girls.

The JV won resoundingly with a score of 123-44

Labor Day Week - First Meets of the season!

Hope everyone is having a great Labor Day, and most importantly enjoying the day off.

Big news this week is our first 2 meets.

Thursday we are at Bartlett.  This is an all athlete meet, meaning athletes from both levels will be competing if they are eligible.  Bus will be "immediately" after school.  Should be West then South.  We will go come home in the same order, West then South.  Meet starts at 4:30pm, will be extremely quick.

Saturday is the LT relays.  Only athletes on Varsity will be competing.  Bus will be at South only at 7:15am.  Meet starts at 9:00am, and traditionally we are on the bus by noon.  We will return directly to South.

JV athletes are off on Saturday.

Looking ahead, there is only a single date of note.  On Saturday night September 17th, we have our Senior night at the YMCA.  Just got formally booked last week, so sorry for late notice.
