Important Update and more… (10 JAN 2018)

The Somerset meet next week will Start at 4:15 p.m. ….not 7:15 as the school website notes.

Please keep Noah and his family in your prayers as he will have another surgery tomorrow:

Also, a quick update on Noah. “ Noah is scheduled for maxillofacial surgery sometime tomorrow to repair the bones below and around his left eye. Please keep him, the doctors and OR Staff in your prayers, Andy”.

New updates just in as of 09 JAN 2018

A few items came up that are important to add to your schedules. Remember tomorrows meet (Wednesday, January 10) is AT Cambria Heights School in Patton Pa. The address is 426 Glendale Lake Rd, Patton, PA. The meet starts at 4:00 p.m according to the team schedule.

Also, Please take note: Our next meet will be on Wednesday, January 17 AT Somerset — The website it noting that it will start at 7:15 pm. This meet was originally scheduled for Friday, January 19 and was to be our senior night – which senior night is now rescheduled! – Anyone scheduled to time on the meet that was to be on the 19th and now is away, we would appreciate you being on-call the last two home meets in the event we need replacements.

I will have an envelope in the office starting tomorrow (if Nick cooperates) for anyone wishing to order a sub for the way home that night of the Somerset Meet, as we realize some will not eat a large meal before the meet so they may be hungry on the way home so this will allow anyone who wants to order and eat that late to do so) – Orders will be due no later than Tuesday, January 16.

Somerset Invitational is on Saturday, January 27 and swimmers please let Coach Jay know your intentions on attending! This is a great event to get extra swims in to qualify for districts.

Senior Night has been rescheduled and will now be on the February 1 meet at UPJ as we host Hollidaysburg. Seniors I still would like you to get your senior questionnaires to me soon as possible

Pictures are in as well. I handed a majority out at the end of practice today however if you did not get yours I will ask Nick to take them into the office tomorrow as well so they can be picked up there.

You an still get lane sponsors in if you would like or you can pay dues directly to Westmont Swim Boosters, c/o Susan Joseph, 139 Drury Lane, Johnstown, PA 15905.

Also, I have had some questions about district dates. From what I have been able to find: Districts will be held at Penn State Natatorium March 2 and 3. (The school does not host the students overnight – some swimmers do with prior permission from the district and that stay with their parents)
States will be held March 14-17 (with I believe the AA going on March 16 and 17 – AAA would be 14 & 15) – Swimmers that qualify for states, the school does provide hotel accommodations to the swimmers under the coaches supervision as this meet is held at Bucknell University.

Finally, Keep Noah and his family in your thoughts and prayers during his recovery!

2018 Somerset Invitational

The Somerset Invitational will be held on Saturday, January 27 at the Somerset High School pool, starting at 10:15 AM.

More specifics regarding when the bus will leave, etc. will be forthcoming, however, Coach Hicks NEEDS to know which swimmers would like to participate in this event.

For those not be familiar with the event, this meet is voluntary but highly recommended for all swimmers. Swimmers of all skill levels are encouraged to attend as the event places swimmers in heats according to their times and it is a great experience for all.

Please let Coach Jay know if you will be attending! It is a great opportunity to pick the event you want to swim and is an opportunity to achieve a qualifying district time as well.
