    While it is nice that swimming world is covering this meet, it would be great if NCAP could up their game a bit to spring for meet mobile. Even just updated live results via Hytek would be welcome and better than normal. But then, when the bottom line is the bottom line, I’m not surprised.

      Hi Bill
      Thanks for your feedback. We have been working as hard as we can to get the meet mobile app up and running at the meet. Unfortunately, there is a software issue between the Meet Manager 6.0 program and pushing out the results. I have discovered that this is not just an issue here, but other meet hosts have experienced it as well. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused for anyone. The live results can be viewed at this link:
