Week #9-8/20-27

This week brings us to our 2nd week of mandatory practices and our first race of the 2018 season! With the Cougar Kick-off this Monday and Tuesday I have moved Practice to 3:15pm those days so More people can make practice. The rest of the week we will meet @8am to beat the heat. At this point we should have a majority of the team making it to practices. If you know you are going to miss practice for a legitimate reason, please let me know. I know people are still on vacation and it is still Summer so just keep me in the loop. Also, if you know you are not going to be able to make it to the Meet on Saturday please ket me know. We need to get a number so we know how many buses we need.
