Set a record? Contact Cheryl

To All Indiana Registered Swimmers who competed at 2013 SCY Nationals

 I will soon receive a meet manager backup in which I will perform a query for new state records.  I am unsure if split events will be in that database so please email me if your split time is faster than a current record.  Remember that splits for backstroke events will not be included unless you notified the officials BEFORE you swam and finished that split on your back.  In addition, records are open for all Indiana registered swimmers including unattached. 

 You do not have to contact me about setting a record for an individual event; however, you are welcome to do so.  Please contact me at cgettelfingerATearthlink.net.
