Note 3: DHS swimmers must swim with the high school team to receive the discount.

Note 4: Coach Joyce usually is on deck at the Girls & Boys high school sectional meet and any non-DHS swimmer interested in swimming should discuss competing at the sectional meet ASAP so their school can register as having swimmers.
