Our annual Red and White meet resulted in a Red team victory! We were impressed with how the returners raced each other and how the new swimmers performed in their first meet. We were, of course, even more proud of our athletes for showing sportsmanship for their own team and their competition.
Swimmers of the Meet for the Red and White meet are: Aldo, Colin, Diamond, and Deenah.
Aldo probably showed the most sportsmanship for the White team; he was consistently cheering and yelling for his teammates! He also won his 50 freestyle by one second and is looking very long and smooth in the water. He's come a long way since joining the team! This was Colin's first meet ever and he swam so hard and so well for his first competitive attempt! His goggles fell into his mouth, but he pushed through and proved he could compete and race!
Diamond also showed exceptional sportsmanship throughout the meet, cheering for her teammates at the shallow end, especially for our 8-and-unders during their events. In the pool, she also swam well, dropping 5 seconds in her 50 breaststroke! Deenah likewise was tremendously sportsmanlike, remembering to shake hands after every race and pushing herself in some close and challenging races!
