Country Run May 6

Please register to run at the Country Run on Saturday, May 6!  This great community event supports the swim and dive team, as well as all the booster clubs at LHS that participate! We need athletes to register and choose SWIMMING, allowing our team to receive some of the raised funds!

We need SPONSORSHIPS! If you know of someone or a company that would like to sponsor the Country Run, please use this form:  Country_Run_Sponsorship_Form_2017

Our Swim/Dive team is going to be working the 1K Fun Run area, prior to the 5K race, so since the athletes (and parents?) will already be there, please sign up for this fun event and help our team in the process!

Girls bring home the District GOLD again! & THANK YOU to parents!

Congratulations to all of our swimmers and divers on an amazing District meet! Girls team brought on the District Champion title for the 3rd consecutive year, and the Boys also brought home the runner up title as well – great job!  We are so proud of all of your hard work this season, and we look forward to cheering you on at Regionals on Feb. 3-4 at Frisco on our continued Road to State!!

Parents – my heartfelt THANK YOU for all of YOUR hard work and willingness to help in running our first district meet! We literally could not have done it without each and every one of you. Thank you for helping out. . . and please let us know if there is anything that we could do to make the meets run smoothly in the future. I think that it ran very well over all. . . and we were actually over-prepared in terms of # of volunteers, so we may not need as much help in the future! 🙂 Thanks again, and see you at the Feb. 9 Booster Club meeting (email with agenda will go out in a week or so).
