Middleton Gators win 2018 All-City Swim Meet

MADISON, Wis. — The All-City Swim Meet will not take place this summer because of concerns of coronavirus.

The swim meet’s board of directors voted unanimously to cancel the event. The vote took place during a virtual meeting Wednesday night.

The All-City Swim Meet was scheduled for the week of July 27. Both diving competitions at Goodman Pool and swimming competitions at Ridgewood were cancelled.

The event typically brings in more than 2,000 athletes every year.

Ridgewood Pool sent a letter to its members Wednesday evening saying it supported the decision to cancel the event.

“We can assure you that the RW and All-City Boards considered all options.  The health of our swimmers, coaches and families is of the utmost importance,” the letter said.

Ridgewood Pool hopes to host the event next summer, along with Goodman Pool.
