posted May 17, 2013, 4:23 PM by GHHS Aquatics

Thanks so much everyone for helping out with CIF- we have had incredibly positive feedback.  Than you to everyone who have donated money, snack bar and hospitality items!  We couldn't do it without you-

CIF finals are Saturday- div 11 at 9:00 am and div 1 at 3:00 pm.  We would love one last request---   We are looking for donuts, bagels, baked goods, cut fruit and snacks/appetizers.
We have to feed all officials snacks and meals and feed coaches- appetizers, snacks,  fruit, drinks etc

The JV invite is this Saturday.  All JV swimmers have been entered in this meet. This meet is mandatory for all JV swimmers who did not swim in the Varsity invite.  Please let us know if you will be out of town.  We have to have all our scratches in by Wednesday night.

Warm ups for Granite are at 7:45 am.  Please show up to Monte Vista no later than 730 am

There are medals for places 1-6. Relay medals 1-3.

If swimmers want a shade tarp, we will need a JV parent to take a Granite tarp after Fridays meet against Westhills.

The timeline will go out Wednesday night after all scratches.   We are responsible for 3 timers in lane 2 all day.  If anyone would like to organize timers for Sat please feel free.  Usually we go in hour shifts.

Look for information this week regarding league championships.  The 5 day meet will now be hosted by Granite hills at our pool.  We will need numerous volunteers for this event, thanks in advance!!!
