Lots of girls shaved significant time and achieved their PRs for the season so far. Looking forward to our 2 meets next week - Tues @ 8:30pm and Mary Wayte, and Thu @ 3:30pm at the TPC Pool Snoqualmie.
To allow more of our athletes to participate in photo day, we have shifted out the start time to 2:00pm. The photo location has also moved to a location between Snoqualmie and Fall City near the Fish Hatchery. The exact location will be announced via the REMIND app. (The photographer recently did a team sports photo at this site and says it will be PERFECT for us!)
Please arrive at 2:00pm - bring your team suit and team parka. We should be wrapped up between 3:30-4pm.
NO SWIM PRACTICE TOMORROW. We will get back in the water on Monday 9/24! :)

The one-way bus from the high school to Boehm Pool (Issaquah) was available thru Tuesday, Aug 28th only. For the first 3 days of school, parents are responsible for getting athletes to/from practice at Boehm. Practice time is 3:30-4:45.
NO PRACTICE ON MON, SEP 3! HAPPY LABOR DAY!
Starting Tues Sep 4, practices move to the TPC Pool on Snoqualmie Ridge 3:15-4:30pm. We expect to find out a few days into the school year if there will be room on the regular school bus route from MSHS to Snoqulamie Ridge to accommodate swimmers that want to ride the bus. We will post an update on Fri, Aug 31st with any new info.
Spirit Wear is ready! We have two options this year: 1/4 zip pullover or long sleeve t-shirt.
Go to the online store to order. All orders must be in by Sep 5! These are OPTIONAL, but girls are encouraged to order. Note: Be sure to check the sizing charts. The Adult sizes are quite large, so Youth sizes are also available.
Racing Suit Update ~ Girls will have until Wednesday's (8/29) practice to try on the sample suits at practice to determine the right size. The link to order online will be available soon.... Stay tuned! Reminder we will likely only have 1-2 days to do the orders so we can get the suits in as soon as possible. (If the suits don't arrive by the first meet, we'll talk to girls about wearing last years team suit if they have it; otherwise, they will be allowed to wear their own personal suit).
First practice is at 3:30pm on Monday 8/20 at Boehm pool. Prior communications said 3pm. Please arrive by 3:15 so we can get started at 3:30pm.
Our 1st meet on 9/6 has had a location and time change. The meet is at 4pm at Edgebook Pool in Bellevue (v. Issaquah HS).
Excited to announce our captains for the 2018 Fall Season - Emi Yoshikawa, Caroline Smith and Tatum Dalgleish!! We're thrilled they've accepted these roles and know they'll do a great job welcoming our new swimmers to the program and leading the team this year.
