2018 Firecracker Mini Meet

Your team is invited to the 2018 Firecracker Mini Meet. When Locust Heights pool dissolved, Mountville took over their Firecracker Mini Meet. This was a special meet to us because we always had a remembrance at the beginning for Stacey Nissley, a coach at Locust Heights that passed away. It was a small meet, with 4 teams. We did not have it this year because East Pete added a mini meet and we felt that the League offered too many mini’s. However, we are sitting on a LOT of money’s worth of Firecracker awards and were sad to not have this memorial for Stacey. So we’d like to attempt having the meet next year. We’re able to open it up to a few more teams, but it will remain a small, short meet.  If you’d be interested in a well run mini meet as another chance for your littles to qualify for All Leagues, please consider attending. E-mail Jill Skiles at jillskiles@gmail.com if your team would like to attend. We’d like to know who is interested before we continue to plan the event. So if you think your team will come, please let us know ASAP so we know it’s on your team calendar.

We’re a Community

I was asked by a few in our swim community to post this to our website.

Dylan Roeder is a swimmer on the Mountville swim team and his mother, a speech and communications professor at Millersville University, has been admitted to the ICU at Lancaster General.

Please keep the family in your thoughts.

Dylan has set up a GoFundMe page to help the family during this time. Below is the link, please read and pass along if you feel it’s appropriate.
