Our second meet was a fun one. Almost everybody tried a new event - many of us swam breaststroke for the first time! In addition to that, we honed our skills with improved starts, turns, and finishes. Swimmers of the Meet are: Olivia, DJ, Bobby, and Paulina.
Olivia tried two new events at this meet: the 100 butterfly and the 200 freestyle. She swam with 13 and 14 year olds in both events, and she won both events. Olivia's consistent efforts in the pool constantly impress us, and these efforts pay off big time in competition! DJ earned the title because of his outstanding swims in both of his relays and his very close victory in the 50 freestyle! Bobby dropped an AMAZING 36 seconds in his 50 freestyle! He kept his head down and moved quickly through his race! Paulina tried a new event, the 100 breaststroke, and we are so proud of her successes in the pool. We are so impressed by Paulina's enthusiasm and dedication to learning and improving!
