Team Service Project - Our team service project is off to a great start! Thank you to the girls who volunteered to count laps, run carnival games and sell bracelets at SLA's swim-a-thon this past weekend. This is a wonderful team effort for a worthy cause -- raising money for cystic fibrosis research in honor of Sydney Hain's 12-year-old brother, Cameron, who is a swimmer himself and is fighting the disease. Read a message from Cameron at qvfso1j3hfodtt535408boc81k.The next parts of our service project:

     ~ Buy a CF bracelet! $2 each and 100% of all sales goes toward the cause - let's try to get every girl on the team to buy one! Megan Mieske will have bracelets available in the locker room starting tomorrow.

     ~ We'll be selling the bracelets and $1 donation signs at the KLAA conference meet

     ~ Our booster club will donate all 50/50 raffle earnings this season to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. If you have any questions, please contact Kathy Dunnuck at or ask any of the senior girls.

"Being your best is not so much about overcoming the barriers other people place in front of you as it is about overcoming the barriers we place in front of ourselves. It has nothing to do with how many times you win or lose. It has no relation to where you finish in a race or whether you break world records. But it does have everything to do with having the vision to dream, the courage to recover from adversity and the determination never to be shifted from your goals." Kieren Perkins
