Seeding:VERY IMPORTANT. Due to the nature of this meet (for most, the first meet of the season), we will allow coaches to submit seed times based on their professional opinion of the athlete's skill. It is crucial that this is done with accuracy to protect the integrity of this meet as the heats will be developed based upon submitted seed times.
