Thanks to the parents who brought snacks, timed, supported the team, and drove your kids in the snowy weather.
Thanks to the JV girls who came out (Dei, Toni, and Emily — if I missed seeing you, I’m sorry).
Special thanks to injured swimmer Alayne Jenkins who has attended every single meet with us in spite of her December injury. Alayne has been our right hand woman during the meets helping with anything from starts to warm ups to whatever we have asked of her.
Even if we didn’t mention you as a top finisher, please understand how important your contribution has been to the team. My email yesterday spoke of our achievements as a total team effort, and “truer words were never spoken.”
I also want to give Jack Krammer a shout out for dropping 20 seconds in the 500 free style. Amazing race, Jack!
The rest of the state qualifier list will be published by OSAA before 10 pm tonight, so we’ll let you know.
Thanks again, to everyone!
