Khris W. way to get that double A cut and making the Div 1 cut as well and what can I say about the new swimmers WOW fist time at Divisions and Nic made finals alternate and what about the girls Lauren 5th in 50 breast Kadie 4th in the hundred breast and Olivia 5th in the hundred fly. What a way to start off your swimming career. Thats awesome Ok everybody. We made it through the first week. I told all of you that it was going to be the hardest 2 weeks of practice yet. We only have one more week and it shoud be getting better. I would like to remind everybody that as we get more tired our tempers become shorter we need to remember that we are a team and everybody feels the same way you do reguardless. Stay focused on the big picture.I will get you there. Coach Mike Well over all, the past 2 meets have been incredible. We had 34 best times several Div 2 quilifiers and some Div 1 quilifiers Tyler N. made 2 AA cuts over the last 2 meets Congratulations Tyler. We have Just one more meet till the Div 2 championships everybody needs to stay focused and and give 110% at practice. Im very Proud of this team and there success. I usually Dont put to much into ribbons but for those who recieved them from the Springfield meet these were well earned GREAT JOB!!!!!!!!!!! Any USA swimmer 9 or over needs to bring a pair of old tennis shoes to practice. Make sure that you dont want to ever use the shoes again, you will need to start bringing them to every practice starting Monday the 28 day of Jan. If you dont have any you can check with the light house shelter or butterfields they may have some. There is no excuse for not having them on Monday even if I'm not there I hope everybody had as much fun at the movie night as I did Although the movie wasn't the best the ping pong was a blast Just ask Tyler as well as the other games. Use the fourm section and post other ideas as to what else you all would like to do Two Manta Rays picked for regional all-star meet Thursday, January 10, 2008 News Paper Artical Two members of the Salt Fork YMCA Swim Club have been selected to compete in the 24th annual Midwest All-Star Age Group Invitational, set for Jan. 19-20 at Lawrence, Kan.
