Friday, the 'Roos will gorge on carbs at their annual Spaghetti Dinner on the pool deck, 6:30-7:30 p.m., to prepare for the Divisional competition Saturday morning when the best swimmers among the 'Roos go up against the best of the rest of the division.

The big meet is at the Upper County Pool, 8211 Emory Grove Rd. in Gaithersburg. Warmups are at 7 a.m. Come cheer on our kids as they wrap p another fun summer!
