Swim Team Begins

by Karen June. 19, 2008 195 views

And tonight it began, the swim team season. Ricky and Emma have only had 4 days of practice before this first meet. All in all, they did a good job. Emma swam 25 Fly, 50 Free, 25 Free, 100 IM and the Medley Relay (Fly). Ricky swam Medley Relay (Fly), 50 Breast, 100 IM, 50 Fly and 200 Free Relay. They had a lot of fun - especially Ricky. He was the only 13-14 boy in quite a few events and so…. he was the winner :). He took it well and laughed a lot. Emma did well, although she was disqualified in her IM because she forgot that she was to do back as the second stroke - until she was half way down the lane. I had to tell her and she cried for 5 minutes. Ah well, so it goes. Her Uncle Scott bet her that she wouldn't do that twice. Way to go guys, as always, I was impressed and totally proud of both of you. Swim on.

Love the shots, especially Emmas. Look at the muscles that girl has got.

Swim on is right. Every year I watch the two of you get better and better. You are both so smoooooooth in the water. Ricky - your free style is right out of the instruction book. My Dad, your great grampa would be so proud of both of you - he was quite the swimmer himself...same smooth stroke that you have. Way to go - I love watching you both improve every meet.
