Board Elections: We had a record number of people participate in the elections this year - thank you to all those who took the time to vote. The 2012/13 Evergreen Swim Team Board listed below will take the helm September 1st:

Heather Smith, President
Dan Gauvain, Vice President
Bob Vincent, Treasurer
Shannon Delany, Secretary
Terrye Easton, At-Large
John Klitzke, At-Large

A huge thank you to out-going board members Susan Kramer, Monique Urban & Tracy Collins.

The team merger will go through as discussed. New name: Jeffco Hurricanes The Board appreciates all the families who took the time to come to the information meetings, send an email or call one of us to discuss the details of the partnership with North JeffCO. The incoming board members were very involved in the discussions, and included in the vote. We have voted in favor of moving ahead to establish a partnership with the North JeffCo swim team, and will create a new team, the JeffCo Hurricanes.This is an exciting new venture for the team that we hope will take us to a new level. Practical details will be shared with the team as they are worked out. It is important to note that the coaches will decide on joint practice opportunities; a swimmer from either team cannot elect to practice at the other team's pool on their own.

Best of Luck to our swimmers who are currently at the 2012 Western Zone Senior Championships in Clovis, California: Jenn Beltz, Kara Coughlin, Holly Fortik, Isaac Hellard, Kam Holland, Ben Holland, Katelyn Kenchel, Megan Lahr, Anna McDonald, Kate McDonald, Linday Morrow, Josie Pearson, Bailey Smith.
