Noteworthy: Let’s hope for a full week of practices again, we only had to cancel one this week after the ice on Wednesday. We would like to remind everyone of our cancelation policy. MAC cancels practice if Huron Valley Schools cancel school. For evening practices, we will announce cancellations later in the afternoon (by 4pm). We hope to hold evening practices if conditions allow.
2019 State Meet registration is officially open. Since we are hosting the meet this year we hope to get 80-plus MAC entries and make this the best State Meet in recent years! Coach Kris sent out a State Meet email a few days ago with lots of good information about hosting, volunteering, sponsorships, and much more. Following that email, Coach Jim added a State Meet tab on the website with everything from coach Kris’ email and more about the State Meet. Here is link directly to the web page: https://milfordathleticclub.org/2019-state-meet/
MAC recorded an awesome mileage comeback this week even without the Wednesday AM practice. Last week we swam 157.25 miles and have made it to Columbia, MO! Please continue to record your mileage for each practice with the coach on deck. Coaches will total each person’s mileage for the week and log the results on our banner.
MAC Lite will continue to be added to our current schedule on Monday nights from 7-7:45pm and on Friday mornings from 8:45-9:30am. MAC Lite will work on the stroke mechanics of all four competitive strokes and aim to slowly integrate swimmers into the 1-1/2 hour MAC practices.

From the Coaches:
Kris: Look forward to a fun Valentine’s Day workout on Thursday!
Dianne: We are working on the 400IM this week at practice, I hope to see you there!
On a Personal Note: I was at Milford this morning, Sunday 2/10 and I enjoyed seeing MAC members working hard in the pool. Some working on their endurance hoping to get back to training with the team, some there for moral support and a swim with friends, and some there to guide new swimmers and help them develop a love for the water. It’s always nice to see just how far the MAC family reaches and the kindness and inclusiveness that this team has become known for and makes this team awesome!
