State Meet – 2020

News #1 – January 10, 2020: 

Countdown to State Meet Begins!

We are getting ready to defend our title, do you have the weekend on your calendar yet? This year’s State Meet will be at East Kentwood HS March 27 – March 29.

We have two hotels reserved for the event. Both are about 15 minutes from the pool but right by each other. The Hampton Inn has an option with 2 queen beds (better for sharing) and the Residence Inn is a suite with a kitchen (better if you want to bring your own food for the weekend). You need to book your own room online through the reservation link below by the date indicated. Rooms are limited so reserve early!

We will be doing a dinner on Saturday night after the 500 Free at one of the hotels. More details to come later.

Hampton Inn & Suites Grandville – book by 3/6/2020
$105 plus tax

Residence Inn by Marriott Grandville – book by 2/26/2020
$109 plus tax

If you did not get a chance to attend the State Meet last time in East Kentwood I have a couple of thoughts:First, the pool staff did a great job and it was a well run meet. Bonus points to them for the meet swag being a pint glass for beer at the end of the evening after a long day of swimming! Second, for those of us that typically squeeze in swimming, family, work, driving back and forth to the meet on a State Meet weekend this away meet is a completely different experience! If you have the chance to come for the whole weekend I highly recommend it. I had the best time with my roommates and teammates and really got to know people because I spent the whole weekend away from everyday life. I’m looking forward to this year’s meet and getting to know all the new people and connecting with everyone else – put it on your calendar!
