Buckeye 200

Dear Buckeye Families,
Are you ready for the Buckeye 200?
We are excited for this new fundraising opportunity, we are asking our swimmers to swim and fundraise for our team.  We encourage all of our swimmers to take part in this important event. All you need to do is collect sponsorship and donations over the next couple of weeks, and then be ready to swim for 1.5 hours or 200 laps, whichever comes first. As you collect sponsorship's, remember that you will be eligible for some great prizes!
This is our biggest fundraiser of the year.  All of the funds raised from the Buckeye 200 will be used to pay for our pool rental time at the new wonderful facility at MC Fitness.
This year our goal is to raise $7500 ($150 per swimmer).  With the help of each family, we believe that we can do it!

Team T-shirt Orders

Parents you may order a t-shirt for yourself by reply email with your size.  They are $10 for parents (we already have swimmers sizes and there is no charge for swimmers tees) So! Yours truly has finally gotten it together and figured out a t-shirt for the season.  I was having extreme difficulty settling on something that captured how I felt about all the greatness going on in our program and the amazing loyalty we have from our families.  Finally we have something - it is at the printer and should be to us in a week or so.  They will not begin printing until next week, so parents can order shirts (kids get them as part of your fees).  Just let me know what size you want, payment is due to the boosters on receipt of the shirt.  This is a white 100% cotton pre-shrunk t-shirt with "Buckeye Proud" on the back and our team logo on the front left chest.   Orders are due Tuesday morning.

Oh What a Year! 2020 in Review

  January 2020 We started the year with a bang. Zach Ward traveled to Knoxville to compete in a TYR Pro Series meet. This was a long course meter meet at which Zach swam personal bests in the 200 fly and 400 IM and he lowered team records in both events. February 2020 February brought the start of our swimmer's Championship season, starting with the High School Championship series. Ben Dunham placed top 16 in the Division 2 state meet! Regionals were held at OSU and coach Laurie did a pushup for each second dropped (lots and lots of pushups)! The Junior and Seniors went to Auburn, Alabama with the Bobcats and 98% of all swimmers achieved personal best times! March 2020 Our littlest swimmers attended the Mini Meet which ended up being our last big meet for some time. Our 8-unders loved the treats and trophies given to each swimmer. 13 swimmers qualified and trained for Junior Olympics while our seniors prepared for Sectionals. It all came to a halt on March 13. April and May 2020
