If you are planning on riding the bus to States to support you teammates, let me know by midnight tonight. There is room for about 30 more team members. Reserve your seat now!
Meet at the bus at 4:45 am in front of the school.
Admission is $7 for students, $10 for adults - no cheating! Bring your student ID. If you are not competing, you will have to sit in the spectator area of the stands, not the team area. There is a snack bar, but I recommend bringing your own water, etc.

Today's make up meet for the snow a week and a half ago is canceled, due to MORE SNOW!
As the season officially ends tomorrow, there will not be a make up meet this time.
We will be holding a make-up meet (for the snow day on the 21st) on Tuesday Feb 1st at Colby Sawyer. Since this is a school night, and we have a long drive afterwards, we will try to keep it short. You must email me to attend! If you are close to States or need your 4th meet to be eligible for States, email me. We will not be entering as many events or relays as usual.
Meet at school at 4:45, bus leaves promptly at 5pm. If a parent is driving, get your notes emailed/signed Monday and bring them to practice.
See you there!
The divers had a great meet yesterday at Dover, NH. Gen placed 2nd and Hunter placed 5th in the Women's 1m Diving. Jacob placed 4th in the Men's.
Way to go, Divers!
