The Virginia Independent Schools Athletic Association (VISAA) State Swimming and Diving Championship is Friday and Saturday, February 14-15, 2020 at the Christiansburg Aquatic Center near Virginia Tech. For this meet, competitors must hit a qualifying time to compete in either an individual event or in a relay.
The weekend will start with a Thursday February 13th breakfast at IHOP in Manassas Mall at 7:30 a.m. followed by the Virginia March for Life in Richmond and a 5:00 p.m. warm-up at the Christiansburg Aquatic Center. The weekend will end Saturday night at Finals with a team party at the Claytor Lake house. I will be returning Sunday morning.
