Saturday morning warm up at 7:30am. We are only being given 35 minutes for warm up due to the size of the meet. Be ready to get in at 7:30am.Be prepared to help time. Finishing around 3:30pm.
Saturday afternoon warm up at 3:15pm. Finishing around 7:45pm.

Afternoons are open warm up. WSST has been assigned to help time Sunday afternoon. We are sharing one chair with TSC. Not sure what team that is at the moment. Maybe Temecula.

Swim fast!

Two of our WSST swimmers that have gone on to swim in college competed in their Conference Championships recently.

Michael Cohn (UCSD) swam at the PCSC Championships where UCSD won for the 7th consecutive year. Michael won both the 200 free and 200 backstroke. He set the school record earlier in the year in the 200 back with a 1:46.0. http://www.ucsdtritons.com/ViewArticle.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=5800&ATCLID=209900487

Zachary Wallace (Tufts) swam at the New England Small College Champs. He swam the 200IM, 400IM, and 200 backstroke. Both the 400IM and 200 backstroke achieved NCAA B cuts. His 400 IM was a school record until his teammate edged it out that evening. http://www.gotuftsjumbos.com/sports/mswimdive/2014-15/releases/20150222cqd1s8
