Dear Penguins and Parents:
Congratulations…we’re now 2-0 after a 125.6 to 116.0 win over Belwood on Saturday! This weekend we have another away meet and will be taking on the Almaden Gators, who won at Champs last year. Please come to practice every day if you can so we can swim our best!
Daniela Fasan is only 15 but already chipping away at the 15-18 Girls records. On Saturday she went :31.71 in the 50 Breast, besting the previous record of :34.55 set by Leah Thompson in 2015.
And our 11-12 boys (C.J. Taylor, Noah Taylor, David Jerez, and Anthony Anderson) set a new record in the 200 Freestyle Relay with a time of 1:59.15, taking down coach Ryan Hussey’s last remaining record (set in 2001 along with Tim Gardin, Sky Sandberg, and Jordan Aljouny). Congratulations!
WILL YOU BE AT THE MEET ON SATURDAY?
The coaches and volunteer coordinators should already know if your swimmer will be missing any part of the meet this Saturday (6/24) at Almaden. So far the families we know will be missing are: Anderson, Bagoye, Buchanan, Castro, Delgado, DeSantis, Espinoza, Jerez, Katz, Kwende, Nelson, Sunderman, Tang, Thompson, Wise, Wyness.
Don’t forget to sign up for your volunteer shift(s) at SignUp Genius. We’ll have additional details about the meet later this week.
PENGUIN POOL PARTY ON TUESDAY IS POSTPONED
The Penguin Pool Party originally scheduled for this Tuesday (6/20) has been postponed due to the extremely hot weather. We’ll keep you posted when the event has been rescheduled.
CANCER RELAY-A-THON ON FRIDAY
This has been a very tough year for our LPAC family, so we’re channeling our penguin power to do something positive. Please gather pledges and come on Friday (June 23) to swim and cheer at the 25s to Save Lives fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. Each practice group will be divided into four relay teams, all swimming as many 25-yard laps as they can in 30 minutes. The more laps your team swims, the more we can raise to help find a cure!
Please note the slightly different practice group times for this day only (high schoolers will get to sleep in a little bit!). We do need at least four parents to stay and help serve as lap counters at each practice. This will be a fun team event for an important cause, and we encourage parents and swimmers to stay and cheer for the other age groups as well. Please collect pledges and share the link to the online donation page with friends and family.
- High School: 7:45-8:30 am
- 12-14: 8:30-9:15 am
- 9-11: 9:00-9:45 am
- 8 & under: 9:30-10:20 am
RAFT TRIP: DON’T MISS THE BOAT!
We have to pay the raft company this week, but so far don’t have very many signups. If you’re planning to go on the Raft Trip on July 1, please send email ASAP to email@example.com and let Julie Webb know how many people will be going in your party. Then complete the form and turn in with payment to the ACTIVITIES folder no later than Friday of this week. Check the website for more details. Remember that everyone who goes on the river must have a signed waiver.
