Notes
   Julia and Megan entered the maximum of nine events over the course of three days and swam most of those events twice (because of the prelim/final format)
   The heat and humidity didn’t get to them, as they continued swimming best times into Sunday evening’s final session.
   Keegan and Grace joined the “party” on Sunday and immediately helped out the team, scoring in five of the six events they swam.
   Our final long course (50m pool) meet is the Texas Age Group Swimming (TAGS) championships in Arlington this weekend. Oliver Spencer is qualified in the 50, 100, & 200 freestyle events.
