Meet Update:

DV LMSC Swimmers,

Unfortunately, the situation changed much more rapidly than anticipated, and we will need to cancel the DV Championship meet this weekend.

Just after we issued that last update, the Upper Dublin School District called to inform us that they are cancelling all activities that involve use of their indoor facilities, including outside groups.  You can read the full press release from the superintendent here:

Like you, we are very disappointed that we need to cancel the meet, but the decision was taken out of our hands.  We are working with ClubAssistant to determine how refunds can be issued, we will keep you informed on any steps that you may need to take.

Hopefully the Colonies Zones Championship Meet will proceed as planned at George Mason University and we will see you there!
