1) A few years ago, folks in Austin pressured TISCA to stop posting state meet call-ups. TISCA failed to stand up for swimmers & coaches, so it became a job for us "rebels".
I took a couple of turns at the wheel before homelessness (AT-style) and a return to the pool deck made it impossible to continue. Luckily, we have another swim nerd who agreed to take on the job.
This will be Scott Scofield's third year on Call-Up duty. Please let him know how much we appreciate his work.
Coaches, please email your results files to Scott ASAP!
He'll post his lists here
2) Coaches & Sponsors - When choosing your Region COTY, please avoid the "voting block" mentality some multi-school districts push. It's your vote, not your school district's.
Also, maybe you should cast your ballot for the coach who did the most with his/her program. Sometimes that's the guy/gal whose team destroyed the competition. Other times, it's a coach whose squad overachieved, but still ended up back in the pack.
Don't tell me I'm "throwing away my vote" when I select someone who's done the best coaching job and not the sponsor who filled out the bus request and ordered the Whataburgers...
