CAC: Week of December 7-12

posted Dec 8, 2015, 6:02 PM by CAC Webmaster
Hi all,

A few things for this week:

Practice Schedule 
Rest of this current week -
Wed - All groups have practice, except NO DIVING ON WEDNESDAY!
Thu - delayed start - blue and diving 6:30-7:30; orange is 7:30-8:30.  

Meet Updates
Parents please the coaches know early enough in the week for line-ups if your athlete can not attend, especially if your athlete is coming late to a meet or needs to leave early!  We received too many last minute notices or no notice at all that an athlete is not able to attend.  It was a rough one there - coaches had too many changes to make.  Illness is something that can not be helped, but knowing in advance and either not telling until last minute or not at all is not acceptable.  Thank your for understanding.....

CAC vs Lower Moreland
Diving:  Tuesday night @ CAC
Boys:  Away @ Lower Moreland HS - Check-in is 9:20 AM

555 Red Lion Rd

Huntingdon Valley, PA 19006

Girls:  Home @ CAC 12:20 check-in

After Lower Moreland dual meet, our next dual meet is scheduled for January 9.

Meet Results
Attached are the results for both meets.  
Girls had 93 improved times from the meet.  Score - CR 400, CAC 162
Boys had 60 improved times from the meet. Score - CR 347, CAC 217
Both meets were very spirited ones.  Nice job CAC!  There are still things that we are continuing to work on as evident by the design of the practices this week.

Athletes of the Meet 

Diving - the divers performed very well on Friday night.  Madeline Boyle is the diver of the meet.  She had an incredible meet by performing each dive beautifully. Congrats to Madeline!!
Girls Meet - The are several girls earning this award this week.  Two girls, Grace Pickford and Melissa Portman, competed in their first 100 free and swam very well!  And then , we had several girls swimming two times in a relay - Emily Moran, Alyssa Williams, and Sam Coates - swam admirably in their relays.  Well done everyone!!
Boys Meet -   The young men who earned this week's athlete of the week are Matt Smith and Andre Purshaha.  Matt swam out of his mind in his races on Saturday racing to two personal bests individually. Andre kept his composure well during the meet and raced very well.  Congrats Matt and Andre!!

Invitational Information 

CAC Odd Age Meet - January 10, 2016 - all CAC athletes, including pre-team athletes that can make a lap of the pool, ages 13 & U are expected to take part in this invitational.  Information is attached.  We are asking each athlete to swim 3-4 events (pre-team free and back) as well as contribute one advertisement per family. Event sponsorship is also available too.  Entries are due Wednesday, 12/16.  

We still need assistance for running off programs for both meets - Odd Age Meet (2 separate programs) and Division Champs (2 separate programs).  If you have the accessibility to make about 225 programs for odd age meet each session and about 125 copies for divisions each session, please let us know.  We are not able to have the copies made over a long time.  We are not able to finish everything until usually 3 days before the actual meet.  So, if someone is able to run them off in bulk at one time that is the best - we can supply the paper too.

Council Rock Hawaiian Holiday Meet is Saturday, January 2 - attached is the information for that meet too. This is an optional invitational.  If you are interested in participating, entries are due Wednesday, December 9 (We will take them onThursday, 12/10 but after that the entries are closed).  

Team Activities - an updated team calendar is also attached.

There is a change to our activity calendar.... the Holiday Partyscheduled for Thursday, Dec. 17 has been changed toMonday, Dec. 21 from 6:15-7:45.  Information on the party should be available shortly.  

CAC Payments
Meghan has been working to update and correct each family's statement.  She is sending them out as she finishes them.... so if there is an issue or a discrepancy please let us know.  We can work through it with you.  On another note, please get your payments in so we can keep everything moving in a forward direction.  

Have a great rest of the week,
Meghan and Jamie
