Early Signing

MAC's own Melanie McClure (MHS/'10) has signed a letter of intent to compete for the Longhorns. UT head coach Kim Brackin and her assistant Jim Henry are very excited to have Melanie on board.

Read more in a Swimming World article here.

Brackin on McClure: "Melanie impressed me by making the tough choice during this decision process; she comes from a long line of Aggies, but decided for herself that being a Longhorn was what was best for her. She has all the tools for becoming a valued asset at the NCAA level; I think her determination, passion and teammates will help put her in that position. Cody Huckabay has done a great job of getting her to race at the national level but, as she gains strength and a higher level of training intensity behind her 6-1 frame, I think the sky is the limit."

Plan Ahead for 2010

Saturday, clubs met to finalize the 2010 schedule. You can view the 2010 North Texas Swimming calendar here.

Also, if you haven't registered your child for 2010, please do so well before the Christmas break. It takes time to process the paperwork, so taking care of this early will ensure that your child will not miss any practices or meets while registration forms are in the "pipeline".

The 2010 USA Swimming athlete registration form can be found (scroll down to page 5) here. They're also available at the MISD Natatorium front desk.
