Happy (almost) spring, swimmers! The 2013 State Meet qual times have been posted online. Take a look. Set some goals. We’ll see you this summer!
Opening ceremonies will be held at the start of each session during the 2013 State Meet. This will include a live performance of our National Anthem. Auditions were held this fall to select three performers and one alternate performer. We’d like to congratulate those selected and thank all of the participants who auditioned. Signing the Star-Spangled Banner at the 2013 State Meet:
Friday afternoon session: Flynn Hannaway
Saturday morning session: Morgan Lee
Sunday morning session: Analese and Sophie Biesterfeld
Andrea LaBaron was selected as the alternate.
Thank you to all who had the courage to audition and a special thank you to our judges Kris Boggs, Beth Walker, Michelle Cheer and Jesse Miller! Check back this coming spring/summer for more information on these performers and the 2013 State Meet.
