Results from the SWAT B/C meet are posted on the lobby bulletin board. If you'd like to view the complete meet result, it's on the North Texas Swimming site here. MAC finished second in team scoring.

MAC individual entries for the COR Winter Classic are also posted in the lobby. Any "A" swimmers who didn't enter before the deadline can still swim in the meet. If you "deck enter" at the meet, make sure you bring your USA Swimming card with you.

Expect more "elbow room" at our December meets. The "A", "BB", and "B/C" meets will all be held at large pools with plenty of deck space for swimmers and upstairs seating for spectators. The A meet is at Loos, the BB meet at Keller, and the B/C meet will be at Carroll.


Please remember to put names on swim fins. If (when?) they're misplaced, we can get them back on the right (and left) feet sooner.


We have a home dual meet against Lamar H.S. Tuesday evening. Please remember to enter through the northeast door for practices.


It means a lot to our staff when they hear parents say "thanks" for the job they're doing with the kiddos. We're glad y'all are part of the MAC program.

Weekly Update - SWAT B/C Meet

1. SWAT B/C Meet: Saturday 11/15 & Sunday 11/16
Just a few notes about the B/C meet this weekend in Duncanville. I want all of our new parents and swimmers to know something up front about this meet. It is the only meet of the year that MAC will attend at Duncanville. The reason being is that the facility at Duncanville is one of the smallest in the metroplex. Everyone needs to be prepared for the fact that it will be very crowded. After having gone there, you will be much more appreciative of how great we have it here in Mansfield! Below is a list of things to remember when you get to the pool this weekend. Parents......Bring a bag chair if you have one. Seating is limited.

If this is your child's first meet, things will seem crazy. Parent's....don't worry. Three meets from now it will all make sense, and going to meets in larger facilities will make things seem less chaotic. Remember.......if you act calm, so will the kids. If you act stressed out, they will feed off that as well.

A. Swimmers need to check in with one of the coaches when they arrive.
B. All swimmers are to sit with the team.
C. Be in your team suit and cap. (If you have not purchased a team suit in the pro shop, please
get that done before the next meet.)

COPS BB Meet Report

Last weekend's BB Meet in Plano was a great meet for us. Every swimmer dropped time in at least one race. This shows the results of our hard work this year. The swimmers of the meet go out to Ian Betts and Lauren Thompson. Ian recorded four "A" cuts and one "AA" cut. Lauren recorded her first two "A" cuts in the 50 Fly and 100 Free. Be sure to check the meet results to see how much you improved and what new time standards you achieved!
