Week # 11 ~ Can you say Seniors!

 

Week Highlights

The holiday party was a huge success with…12 dog paws pouncing, 11 bullets firing, 10 bazillion guns a blazing, 9 swimmers singing, 8 girls a giggling, 7 boys a scheming, 6 gifts a swapping, 5 golden team moms, 4 team captains, 3 small fish, 2 giant boxes of nerf guns and one poopy shoe!

Thank you to The Mayer, McCallum and Stewart families for providing breakfast and The Robbins for supplying meet snacks.  A huge shout out to all the parents and families who helped support East Swim this week from the fundraiser to the meet to the holiday party ~ Thank you!!

The UHSAA has realigned East to 6A Region 3 with West, Herriman, Copper Hills, Bingham & Riverton. More details can be found at UHSAA

Congratulations to the following who were selected as swimmer of the meet by their coaches:

  • Ashleigh Tanner for dropping time in the 100 back after being injured and only being Abel to kick at practice for the past few weeks.
  • Justin Valiente who swam almost 10 seconds faster in his 100 Free.
  • Carter Rich for completing his first ever 500 and being a team player and filling in last minute for sick swimmers in the relay.

Week Highlights

What a week! We appreciate your patience and being accommodating with the pool issues. The pool is back in business and hopefully will not run of out chlorine in the near future. Thank you to The Curtis family for hosting the team dinner, The Mayer’s for breakfast, and to McCallum, Bell and Harris families for providing treats for the Saturday meet.  The meet that was cancelled against Syracuse will NOT be rescheduled this swim season.

Recall this week is our last fundraiser – let us make it big $$$, bring your family for dinner at Costa Vida on Monday. There is a prize for the swimmer who brings in the most customers!

Some of you may have heard about the UHSAA deciding to change the boundaries for our region for the next school year. This places East and Highland in Region 5 with schools to our north such as Box Elder in Brigham City– what does this mean? It means longer commuter times and more time away from school for ALL student athletes, it also takes away the friendly inner-city competition. We highly encourage all you to review these changes and attend the meeting on Wednesday, December 5th at 630pm at Jordan High School in Sandy. For those of you with Juniors or Seniors on the team you may recall this occurred a few years ago and less than ideal.  UHSAA 2019 Realignment    UHSAA Press Release

Week Highlights

Hopefully everyone had a chance to rest and eat up over the weekend and enjoyed the time off! Thank you to The Rich and McCallum families who supplied breakfast. This week there are two swim meets, a home meet on Thursday and an away meet on Saturday in Park City. Attached is the December schedule for your planning purposes, please keep in mind we still have practice over holiday break at the normal times as that is our allocated pool time.  Calendar Overview

As we head into December a busy time of year not only with family holiday obligations but with swim team functions, meets and our last fundraiser. This is the time of the season in which many swimmers become overwhelmed, tired and flat out exhausted. Parents please help the swimmers take care of themselves by encouraging them to eat well, sleep as much as possible, plan ahead for those hard homework assignments, and wash hands to keep them healthy!
