Meet Schedule through Lone Star, 2019

Meet results from Shreveport

We have the meet results from Shreveport this weekend.  I’ve not had a chance to compare to our record or USA times but there are a few swimmers to recognize.  The Red River Y has pool records that we will now be a part of.

Charloette Lane set record for the 1650 with a time of 21:19.75

The 15 and up Boys 200 Freestyle Relay (Kia Morgan, Jacob Warren, Brayden Hackney, and Schuyler Morgan) set a record with 1:34.88.

Last Minute Items About Shreveport

From the Shreveport Coach, John Janszen:

 

Last minute reminders and details. Nothing major.

  • Heat Sheets are on the event pages of our team website. Each meet has a different event page.

o    They are also now available on the Meet Mobile app.

  • We have 18 small 3 row bleachers for all of you on the South side of the competition pool. There is space towards the West End (warmdown pool side) where people can place chairs if they bring them.
  • We have a “Ready Bench” or “Clerk of Course” for Saturday setup using chairs in the corner at the start end…although 25’s will start from the bulkhead starting blocks. We’ll have to walk them down.
  • SUNDAY we will have limited drinks and snacks available at no charge for swimmers and spectators. Donations will be accepted to go towards the Y’s Annual Campaign.
  • Coaches and Officials will have a Hospitality room just down the hall in our conference room. We will have coffee Sunday morning in addition to some snacks and small breakfast items. Drinks will also be available.
  • If we have any changes or additions we can work on that at the computer table. We will take Deck Entries in Open Lanes only, no new heats created. We will not take cash for deck entries. We will just include it in the regular meet fees after the meet. So no need to pay on site (and no double charge for deck entry). I figure this will be easier this time around.

Team Parent Meeting

Kathy and Rebecca would like you to attend a Parent Meeting on Monday, January 14th at 4:45p and 6:15p (no, you don’t have to attend both).  We are hoping the weather will be nice and we can have it on the pool patio, but worst case, we will be in the multi-purpose room for the 4:45 meeting and the lounge by the group exercise rooms for the 6:15 meeting.

BCCY Meet Entries, Take 2

When all the meet entries were submitted for the Sunday Champs meet, the time line ran nearly 6.5 hours long.  With some discussion among the coaches, it was decided to drop 1 individual event per swimmer.  We (Coach Kathy, Coach Rebecca, and I) decided the quickest and best way to accomplish this was to compare times against the a psych sheet and drop the lowest scoring event for each swimmer while maintaining the ability to score points for the team across the events.  So your swimmer may or may not be in the events you entered him or her in for that meet.  Those that have pointed out incorrect seed times should those corrected at the meet.

BCCY Meet Entries

Meet entries have been entered. Please review and let me know if there are changes. Relays were tricky this time around and the numbers did not work out very well. Please understand if you asked for your child to be in a relay and they are not.

January Meet Information

This month is a little different.  We have an opportunity to swim against a new team in a new part of the country.  This will actually be 2 different meets to help swimmers qualify for Y nationals.  There are several hoops for that, but this gives us a chance to do something different.  The meets will be hosted in Shreveport, Louisiana over 2 days.  The Saturday meet will not start until 1 pm (warm ups at 12) so there is time to drive in the morning without having to be up at those Dallas times.  Then we can spend the night and do it all again early the next morning so the drive back will not be too late.  One meet will be a normal meet, but in a single session.  The next day will be a scored, single day, championship meet, just like we won last month.  We hope you can invest in the weekend, make it a fun trip for the family, and show those Louisiana swimmers what the Barracudas are made of, even when not in home water.  Details are below as I have them.  Please email the coaches with questions.  Comments on the blog are not always seem by the staff that needs to see them.  Please note entries will need to be sent via our entry form by our deadline, not to anyone listed in the meet packets.  We need time to vet and question entries before sending them on.

Please also email Jacquelyn Kotar if you plan to attend the meet:  jkotar@ymcafw.org.
