Riverview Swimming and Diving: Welcome
Sunday, February 24
The boys are well into their taper right now and are working hard to hit their best times next Saturday. Please encourage them to get enough rest and stay ahead in their studies. For most of the guys, this will be their last week of practice. Swimmers and divers that are competing in the state meet and regional (diving) will continue to practice the following week. If your son does not swim in the state meet and has a team issued warm-up jacket, please have it washed and returned during the week of March 4th. They could also return them to Coach Gill during school if transportation is an issue.
Special thanks to all who participated in the Comedy fundraiser. Revenue generated from this fundraiser will be used to purchase new strength/conditioning equipment in addition to providing funding for a new recordboard and PA system for the pool.
We have no dual-meets during the week. Our league championships (SMISL) will be held this Saturday at Eastern Michigan University. This pool is arguably the fastest in the state so we are very excited to see our team swim well next weekend! In addition, the state finals will be at EMU as well. Noah Ellington & Nathan Smiley will represent RCHS at the Diving regional the following Tuesday at Cranbrook-Kingswood High School in Bloomfield Hills. The top 12 divers in the regional advanced to the state meet on the 8th. On March 8-9, is the state prelims & finals at EMU. The top 16 in the prelims will earn the right to swim in the finals on the 9th. At this time, the following individuals have earned the right to represent RCHS: Alex Guthrie, Dakota Roehler, Jacob Hosier, Nicolas Guthrie, Ryan Pickell, Nick Diroff, & Morgen Gardocki! We have a few other swimmers who are knocking on the door in individual events and possibly as alternates for relays. Final decisions will be made after the SMISL meet.
