This meet has been cancelled due to COVID conditions and pool length certification issues. We will try to reschedule; please have patience.
Distance events are the 400 IM, 500 Free, and 1650 Free. The 1000 split (based on the timing system record of the touch at the 1000) of each 1650 will be uploaded to the USMS results database. No split request for the 1000 will be necessary. For fun, there will also be a 100 Mixed Free Relay at this meet. We are looking forward to seeing you all at the meet!!
