County Swim Meet Results

The pool is still and quiet. Swim team is over and so are swim lessons. We are starting to dry out a little!

On Saturday we went to the end of season swim party/bbq...the boys were excited to find out how they did at the county swim meet. It is such a huge meet with soooo many kids that we didn't find out all the results by the time we left (at 10:30P.M.)

Our oldest had a great season ending with three personal records in his last meet. He shaved three seconds off his freestyle best and surprised everyone including himself with a fifth place finish at the county meet. He took a whole second off his specialty...the breaststroke, and finished seventh. He also swam a second faster in the backstroke which he considers his weakest stroke and finished twelfth!

He was pretty tickled with the awards he brought home!

Our second oldest also had a fantastic meet. He finished eighteenth in freestyle, improving his time and trying out a new breathing technique that his coach suggested. His highlight moment was in the breaststroke when he cruised in for a fifth place finish!

He was also thrilled to receive a medal and is pretty happy with his progress this summer!
