  • I am happy the meet was covered, but disappointed in the lack of depth of results. Please refer to all of last years stories: all coverd both Girl's and Boys' FULL RESULTS. This was helpful in keeping track with all of our swimmers. My request: list all results, as you have done in the past. Thank you for listening and I appreciate the opportunity to respond. Best, Lisa
