Over 100 swimmers participated in the “Support Bobby and Family” practice on Monday at Fallbrook and many brought their parents.  It was an amazing outpouring of love for the Guerra family, and has helped raise much needed funds for Bobby and his sister.  Their thanks go out to the entire SI Swimming family for your kind support.  For those who would like to attend, a Celebration of Life for Cathe Guerra will be held on Tuesday, June 30 @ 1:00 pm at Eternal Hills Mortuary, 1999 El Camino Real, in Oceanside.

San Diego-Imperial Swimming has announced that this year’s Long Course Junior Olympics meet will now be held at the Jewish Community Center pool in La Jolla.  This late change was necessitated by safety concerns which have closed the pool deck at the Coronado HS pool. Also, because of limited availability of the JCC pool, the LCJO format will have to change from the current 4 full day format back to a 3 full day + 1 evening format.  The Championship committee is working on coordinating all the details and packing 4 full days worth of events into 3.5 days worth of time!  The revised meet information and schedule of events should be released in the very near future.
