Just a quick note: The latest (as of Dec 7th, 2020) is that the Swim season will start on May 10th. Naturally, that of course is subject to change, but is the best guess that OSAA thinks could be a possibility for Oregon. That makes it only a 6-week season too, so really short, but it’s something. In the interim, I may consider some additional dryland/zoomland or something periodically for those that may be interested. – Coach Dave
Team Awards Dinner – CANCELLED for tonight March 12th/Postponed due to the school districts new restrictions on “large” group gatherings that took effect starting March 12 until who knows when. The District isn’t defining a specific number for “large”, like Gov. Kate Brown’s edict on 250+ gathering moratorium for the entire State. But our collective group at probably 90+ for our team with families etc, in a confined space with not 3 feet or more of distance from each other, and ingesting food all together, probably not a good idea in accordance to the gist of what the mandate is trying to accomplish. So we need to just do our part as well :/ Maybe we can reschedule though later if things mellow out in a month too.
Team Pics: I’ve finished burning the 2-DVD sets of the season pics for those that ordered them ($5), and I’ll get them to the school in the next few days. Or you can drop by the NCAP pool on Cascadia practice times we have there and I can get it to you then (potentially Mon and Wed next week 7:30p-9p). It’s almost 8GB of pics so it’s not a size I’ll be posting online for download, just to be sure. The Team Pic by itself I’ll post a printable size on here for you though for those that would like that (no fee for that, just your home ink cost or Costco prints etc).

However, these Relays will be the FIRST Relays that Rex Putnam HS has ever sent to STATE since it’s inception and fielding a swim team, in it’s 50 year history! This is inclusive of Boys and Girls. So, in itself is making of some Putnam History! Congratulations girls!!!
