MAKO Winter Invitational
I'd like to thank all the parents who volunteered as timers, those who worked at the concessions table & awards table, those who donated items to our concession stand, and those of you who made sure that the coaches and officials were well fed & fueled in the hospitality room. I also appreciate all the hard work and long hours the coaching staff and officials put into this meet.
Again, several coaches and parents from other teams complimented us on how well the meet was run this weekend, and we couldn't have done it without our parent volunteers.
WAY TO GO MAKO PARENT VOLUNTEERS!

You may review this link to see the meet announcement. Coach Mike recommends this meet for those Sr Prep and Junior II swimmers who are within 4 seconds of a Junior Olympic qualifying time. Swimmers should not enter an event that they already have a JO cut in. All other swimmers should compete in the 14&Under qualifier meet.
