June 2- Swim Meet June 4 CANCELLED!

posted Jun 3, 2011, 2:31 AM by RSST Swim Team
Fountain Central has decided to cancel our upcoming meet this Saturday June 4th.  I received the phone call this afternoon.  Apparently, he had only 20 swimmers confirmed to attend the meet and chose to forfeit.
The board and coaches brainstormed all afternoon/evening trying to figure what to do that would be best for RSST.  We all agreed we did not want to do another mock meet since we had to do that last night.
We tried to organize a "tri-meet" between us, Lafayette Country Club and Benton EELS at our pool but the other teams were not able to do that.  (LCC and Benton have a meet on Saturday so thought we could combine all three)
So, our only other option was to accept the forfeit and have no meet at all.
I am still awaiting confirmation on the June 13th reschedule date with LCC.  If we are able to confirm that, then those who were scheduled to work at this Saturday's meet will work at the June 13th meet.  If that does not work for you, please let me know.
I am sorry to send out this news because I'm sure you are discouraged just as I am.  We want to swim!  I did speak to the Benton EELS coach tonight and she ASSURED me they will be here next Wednesday.  I suppose that on the bright side this gives our swimmers a few more days of practice to improve and shorten times!
Signs will be posted at practice tomorrow and all coaches will be telling their swimmers.
