resume mistake?

hi, i was just looking at my submitted resume, and i noticed that for my varsity sport, i put down 17 weeks because the example resume i saw said "sports season = 15 weeks", but our season usually goes longer than normal because of state matches so i added in another 2 weeks, when it should still be 15 weeks (now that i think actually think about how many weeks i did the sport). knowing the fact that i do around 15-20 hours per week, should i contact the college? or is it not that big of a deal and should just let it be to not draw attention to mistakes?

i was thinking that if i did leave it be, how believeable is it that i did 17 weeks of a sport during school (school year is like 40 weeks...)
