Noteworthy: Ok, last time I hope to say this but, let’s hope for a full week of practices again.
Make sure that you try and make it to Saturday practice this week! If you can’t make it to practice please take note that there is a team meeting on Saturday at 9:30am right after practice to discuss all things State Meet. Coach Kris will have a suit sizing kit available at the team meeting on Saturday and we will let you know as soon as the suits are available to purchase at the team’s store!
Speaking of the State Meet; T-shirts are available to purchase directly from our website under the “Shop” tab. If you are curious about sizing ask an on-deck coach, we have a sizing kit available at the pool this week. You can also purchase MAC caps (personalized and/or plain). Here’s a preview of the State Meet shirts:
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 racked up the mileage last week despite the cancellation of practice on Tuesday. Last week we swam 170.50 miles and have made it to Ottawa, 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.
