Today’s the day the men’s team, parents and fans have been waiting for – districts! The guys will finally get their shot to swim at this very important meet today at 5:00 p.m. at Roosevelt.
They’ve spent the last couple days hanging out with the team, eating right and prepping for the meet. And we must say – they look even better now!
The guys will do a warm-up at Lincoln today, eat a healthy lunch together, and drive over to RHS in a group. They’ll be ready to do a second warm-up at 3:30 p.m. when the site warm-ups start.
Admission to the meet is $5 for adults. Roosevelt will have a concession stand open. There will also be T-shirts for sale ($15 approx.) along with programs ($2 approx.).
Tips for Districts
— Get to the meet early. It will be a full house and Roosevelt doesn’t have great parking. The streets around the school will fill with cars.
— Buy your T-shirts early! The T-shirts at these meets sell out fast, especially if they do dri-fit ones again. If you’d like one for your son, please get it quick!
— Bring healthy snacks for your swimmers (and yourself if you’d like!). The meet starts at 5:00 p.m. and could last until 9:00 p.m. The guys will need fuel to keep performing at peak level. Fruits, nuts, crackers are all great ideas.
— Expect a late night. We’ll be heading over to the Worth’s house immediately following the meet. This will allow the team to find out qualifiers and alternates (if applicable) together, just like we would have on Saturday. This means we could all be there until 10:00 p.m. or even a little later depending on when the cut-times are released.
We’re looking forward to tonight! Go Rails!!
