All four CIAC Boys Class Championship Finals observed meets have now been loaded to the national database, SWIMS.  Coaches expecting to use these times to enter Sectionals, Y Nationals, or any other national meet are strongly encouraged to check that the times they need show up in SWIMS.  Automatic capture rates were as low as 30%.  Missing times should be reported to Ginger McCurdy as soon as possible.  Times will be loaded to FAST upon completion of this coach review process.
