Tri-County Conference Meet - Postponed for 2021
- The Tri-County board had to make a hard decision early this year to cancel the conference swim meet for this season. There were many unknowns at the time the decision had to be made. We decided it would be too hard to pull off this year with the large number of people it involves. Instead, on what is normally conference Saturday, July 24th, there will be 4 dual meets, all being swam in a 25 meter pool. We will be hosting Mt. Horeb. Coaches will put a conference line up together and the top 16 times in each event in the conference will be awarded ribbons and medals based on their finish. This will only be a 1 day event. Swimmers who want to swim for conference final places MUST swim in at least 3 dual meets this summer. There will be more information on this meet as it gets closer.
The Conference Meet is the grand finale! All 8 teams in the Tri-County Conference come together for this meet. It is scheduled for Saturday and Sunday following the last meet; the last full weekend in July. It is an exciting way to end the season.
Swimmers will be selected for the Conference meet based on COMPETITIVE TIMES so that the Pool Sharks have our most competitive line up for the meet. Each team is allowed a maximum of 3 swimmers per individual event and 2 relay teams in each boys and girls age group. There are no exhibition events at Conference. Participation in the conference meet is not mandatory, but to be eligible to swim at Conference, the swimmer must be have swum in at least 3 dual meets. Swimmers must be available both Saturday and Sunday.
Saturday of Conference is made up of only individual events. It will follow the same order of events as a dual meet without the relays: Free, Back, IM, *break*, then Breaststroke, Long Free, and Fly. On Sunday, relays and finals for individual events are held. Individual finals includes the top 16 times from Saturday, plus 2 alternates, in each event, boys and girls, per age group. In individual events, medals are awarded for the top 3 places and ribbons are awarded to 4th-16th place. In relays, medals are awarded to the top 6 and ribbons for 7th-16th place. More information about the conference meet will be available in July.
