Weather forecast adjusts Allstate Sugar Bowl Metro Swimming Championships
Event Opens Today and Continues Sunday Due to Saturday Rain Forecast
NEW ORLEANS – With heavy rains forecasted for tomorrow (Saturday), the Allstate Sugar Bowl Metro New Orleans High School Championship Swim Meet has adjusted its schedule. While the event will still open today (Friday), event organizers have postponed Saturday’s conclusion to Sunday afternoon starting at 1 p.m.
The Metro Swimming Championships are being held at Franco’s Health Club and Spa in Mandeville (100 Bon Temps Roule, 70471). Event trophy presentations are expected to take place at approximately 3 p.m. on Sunday. Fan admission is free.
The Sugar Bowl Metro High School Championship is the premier swimming event for high school athletes in the metropolitan area. The popularity and significance of the event exceeds that of the city and state championship meets as it includes the schools of all five classes of LHSAA, including Catholic, public and private schools – ensuring that the best swimmers compete against each other, regardless of classification. The meet includes schools not only from New Orleans but also from the Northshore and other metropolitan areas.
The Metro Championships are expected to include nearly 25 schools and approximately 350 individual swimmers participating.
Trophies will be awarded to the outstanding male and female swimmers, as well as the top three teams (girls and boys).
The Metro Championship is sanctioned by U.S. Swimming and this is the eighth year that the Allstate Sugar Bowl has sponsored this event.
The mission of the Allstate Sugar Bowl is to sponsor and promote amateur sporting events which will foster revenue and spark economic growth in the city of New Orleans and the state of Louisiana. Through its year-round slate of events, the organization has generated over $2.2 billion of economic impact for the city and the state in the last decade alone.
