Take your mark...
Once again, we are hosting the bi-annual Alumni Meet on Saturday, 
November 18 at 10:00 AM.  The pool will be available at 9:00 for warm 
ups and family swim.  The event format (mostly 25's and 50's) will be 
posted on our web site shortly. http://www.hcs.harvard.edu/~swim/ 
On line entries are encouraged. 
Relays are always a highlight of the meet so gather your classmates 
together!  Remember, the handicap is about .10 per 50 per year (although 
I'll have to check on that!)  Varsity swimmers will also be 
participating and can fill in on relays where needed.  Rumor has it that 
Jessi Walter '03 has convinced Sarah Iannacone '02, Janna McDougall '02, 
Erica DeBenedetto '04 and Catie Lee '02 to swim.  In addition Jeannie 
Floyd Downs '84, Deb Zimic '84, Annie Wilson '86 and Susan Kim '84 are 
all set to compete in a relay.  So, dust off your suits and get ready 
for some fun!  Being in shape is not a requirement.
A barbecue will follow the meet prior to the Harvard/Yale football 
game.  We do hope to see many of you in attendance.  Please RSVP to 
Hilary Abrams at HSABRAMS at aol.com <mailto:HSABRAMS at aol.com> for the BBQ 
so we have an estimate of how many people will attend.  Alumni, 
families, parents and swimmers are all welcome.
The team has been training hard since our official start date on 
September 24 (the calendar is moved up one week this year) where we 
kicked off the season with a midnight practice.  Recently, we increased 
both the yardage and intensity and the team seems to be handling it 
quite well.  Although the infamous 55x100 set lurks in the future, they 
did survive the Build up 200 IM set and excelled at the LA Freeway set 
(the 10 x 200 passing game.)  In fact, freshman Alexandra Clarke posted 
the fastest time twice with a 1:52.5, breaking the former record of 
1:54.2 set by Laurin Weisenthal.  Not to be outdone, Laurin was also 
under her previous record with a 1:53.7 and Emily Wilson clocked a 
1:54.9 to round out the top three.
On Friday, October 20 we will have our annual Intrasquad meet.  The meet 
will provide an opportunity to swim a full line up and includes both the 
1650 and 400 IM.  Our team will definitely be ready for an opportunity 
to get up and race in order to prepare for our first Ivy League meet 
this year against Penn on November 4^th .
