One meet is over but another has yet to begin as Stanford's Avery Aquatic Center gears up for its second straight week of national-class swimming. The Speedo Junior National Championships get under way Monday and run through Friday at Stanford while highlighting many of the finest 18-under swimmers in the nation.

We love reading your swim articles. Unfortunately, this one contains multiple errors. To begin, Stanford Women (not Tuscan Ford), and SwimMAC Carolina Men (not Tuscan Ford) won Senior Nationals last week. Top international and/or olympic swimmers Elizabeth Pelton, Elizabeth Beisel, and Missy Franklin will not be attending junior nationals, especially after competing at Worlds in China and Senior Nationals back-to-back. Local and national stars Maddy Schaefer and Maya DiRado will not be competing this week, and Jasmine Tosky will be competing in a limited number of events (again, having just competed at Worlds in China and Senior Nationals). Also, the women's 200IM is not Monday, but Friday.

How about mentioning other local swimmers swimming in Jr's? There are over 20 PASA swimmers who will swim at the Jr National meet this week? It's great that all of the out of town talent is mentioned, but isn't this THE PALO ALTO WEEKLY?
