The meet schedules picked up where they left off in 2021, with Montgomery County, and the Northern Virginia schools competing over the weekend 1/7-1/8, PVS hosting meets 1/8-1/9 and the private schools competing through 1/11. We’ve uploaded results to our site for all the meets we could get.
What’s fun with these uploads is you can generate reports to see how fast your friends are swimming in their meets. For example check this link for top times in the 200 Freestyle for girls (Reminder, this isn’t comprehensive, this is generated from the results we have):
