Cleveland-Ringgold Swim Meet Rescheduled For Tuesday, June 25

Dalton, Fort Oglethorpe Post Wins Over Stuart Heights, Cumberland

Monday, June 17, 2013 - by John Hunt

CLEVELAND, Tenn. -- Warmups had been completed and the Pledge of Allegiance to the American flag had been said here at the Tinsley Park pool Monday evening

Exhibition races for the younger kids were underway in the freestyle event when the first roar of thunder was heard.

The pool was cleared and it wasn't long before the rain began to fall.  A light rain at first turned into a pretty good downpour.  About an hour later when the storm was lingering longer than expected, coaches and pool reps for the Ringgold Tiger Sharks and the host Cleveland Aqua Tigers got together and chose Tuesday, June 25 as the makeup date for this important Red division meet.

Both teams entered the meet unbeaten with Cleveland having won three times and Ringgold twice. 

Ringgold will host Red Bank on Thursday and Calhoun on Monday before Tuesday's makeup meet while Cleveland goes across town for a meet with Mosby Park on Thursday before having a bye on Monday.

Ooltewah's meet at Fairyland was also postponed and a makeup date has yet to be determined.

In other CASL action on Monday, Dalton improved to 3-1 with a 413-344 victory over visiting Stuart Heights while host Fort Oglethorpe defeated Cumberland by a 383-312 final.

Other meets on Monday had Red Bank hosting Calhoun and Big Ridge hosting Ridgeside.

The Country Club Wavemakers put their unbeaten status on the line on Tuesday when they host Fort Oglethorpe, the second-place team in the White division with a 2-1 record.
