Mid Penn Championships & Plunge

Information on Mid Penn Championship and Plunge meets can be found here:

First up is the Mid Penn Championships meet Friday & Saturday February 8th & 9th…here are the details for our Mid Penn swimmers…

  • Friday:  All Mid Penn Swimmers will be dismissed Friday at 12:45 and the bus will depart the school at 1pm.  We will stop for lunch so please bring money for lunch (I will let you know once we confirm where we are stopping). Boosters will supply water and snacks at the meet and there is also concessions available at the meet.   We will NOT have a bus going back to the school after the meet.  Swimmers may leave with their families after confirming with the coaches once their events are completed. Please reply to this email if your swimmer will need help with transportation after the meet and we will help to arrange rides
  • Saturday: Swimmers should arrive at CDHS at 7:45 the bus will depart CDHS at 8:00. Again we will NOT have a bus going back to the CDHS after the meet.  Swimmers may leave with their families after confirming with coaches once their events are completed.
  • Parents/Spectators:  For first time parents attending this meet we are not allowed into CV until after school is dismissed on Friday after 3pm. Many parents start lining up outside of the school early afternoon Friday and early morning Saturday (crazy swim parents:)) I will send a text or email once I confirm when some of our crazy swim parents will be going to line up, I believe we usually go closer to 2pm and have not had a problem getting good seats.  If you are not able to get there until later you should still be able to get in you just may have to stand in the back.  They do not allow “saving seats” but many spectators leave as their swimmers events are over which opens up some seating.

Any time during the month of February that the number on your ticket is drawn in the PA Daily 3 digit number evening drawing you win anywhere from $25 – $100.  Please help by selling at least 2 tickets.
