Our warm-up session on Thursday night is at Liberty University Natatorium from 4:00 to 4:30.  Diving Warm-up Thursday night is from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. so I will leave it to Coach Keapproth to set that schedule.

Swimmers and Divers should plan on leaving after 4th period and going straight to the pool.  We will take a team picture with anyone who is in the proper uniform at 3:45 p.m.  See below for “Everything You Need to Know About States“.

We’ve rented a house on AirBnB so we have a central gathering place for the team between sessions.  Most of the team will not actually sleep at the house.  Here’s the AirBnB listing for the place:

Here are the Individual qualifiers.   You may only swim in the bonus 50 Free if you have qualified in some other way and aren’t already swimming four (4) events.

Individual Qualifiers-2023 VISAA States-Feb17-18,23-Final

We have qualified both an “A” and a “B” Relay for all six (6) relay events for boys and girls.  We are taking the fastest eight (8)8 swimmers for each relay, even if that means that a swimmer is swimming in three (3) relays.  The exceptions are Ariana Aldeguer, Clara Condon, Connor Koehr and JJ Brox who will participate in two (2) events individually.   Here are the best splits swum during this season:

Relays-Top Splits-2023 VISAA States-Feb17-18,23-as of Feb11,23

If you are on a “B” Relay, you still have one more opportunity to swim on the “A” Relay.  If the “A” Relay qualifies for the Finals and you swim a split in Prelims that puts you into the top 4, you will swim for Seton in the Finals.

Thank you to Mrs. Condon for handling all of the logistics for the weekend.  Here is some important information with action required from all of you who are on the State Team:
