Meet #5 Info: Ridgetop @ Richmond Country Club

On Monday, July 10, Ridgetop will be traveling to Richmond Country Club for our next dual meet! The meet start time is 6:30 pm; you should arrive about 60 min early to get settled and be ready for warmups. The theme for the meet is “College,” so wear your college colors proudly! The meet will also feature coach and parent relays, and those are always fun.

The pool address is 12950 Patterson Avenue, Richmond, VA 23233.

We were originally scheduled to host this meet, as our last home meet of the season, but the situation with Ginter Park’s pool changed all that. But still, this will be the meet where we honor our seven graduating seniors:

Tory Farmer
Ellie Hinkle
Emily Pilc
Molly Powers
Ian Stevenson
Claire Weidhaas
Geneva Weidhaas

One of the great things about our team is that so many swimmers who stick around until the very end, so let’s be sure to show our appreciation for these swimmers by cheering loudly for them at the meet!

Please review the list of swimmers who will NOT be attending the meet for accuracy. Please email the coach if this is in error. The list includes the “non-responders,” those who have not told me whether or not they are participating in the meet. If your plans change at the last minute, it is imperative that you email the coach AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. Obviously unexpected things can happen, but foreseeable last minute cancellations cause disruption of the lineup and buddy list and are disrespectful of your teammates and coaches.

Below is the current meet lineup and buddy list, as of 5:30pm on July 9. Be aware that there can be late changes due to last minute cancellations, so don’t forget to verify the events at the meet.

Even experienced swimmers and swim parents could benefit from reading pages 8-11 in the swim team handbook about swim meet routines and procedures, as well as this post about how the coaches determine meet line-ups.
