Our summer season officially ended today around 5:30 PM. It was a VERY successful meet. Considering we were one of the smaller teams in the meet, with only about 65 swimmers, we ended it with a bang! We came in 5th overall, but we were only 15 points away from 3rd place. I think we ended up with about 595 points overall. We had 5 swimmers, of all age groups, who were recognized for high points, and we had a few trophies and medals, as well as a whole bunch of ribbons.
My Seals swam their hearts out and all did an amazing job! I am so proud of all of my swimmers. One of my 13-14 year olds broke new records every time she got into the pool. She has a very bright future ahead of her.
We had some fun coaches’ rivalries today as well, but everything was all in the spirit of fun and team support. We sported our team colors in style. Our colors are purple and green, the Meadows are green and white, and Rock Creek is orange.
As Head Coach, I am not quite done yet, but the swimmers are all done. It is now time for them to enjoy the rest of their summer and to relax a bit. They have certainly earned a bit of R & R.
We had a bit of a scare at the end of the meet, with just a few heats left to go before ending our season, due to Mother Nature. With less than 15 minutes before finishing, lightening struck and we had to postpone the rest of the meet for 30 minutes. But all ended well, and the skies cleared up, allowing us to complete our meet and to finish the season in style. We even had time for the awards.
It was a fantastic season and I am already sorry it is now over, but at the same time, I am already looking forward to next season, which I know is going to be even better!
Just keep swimmin’, just keep swimmin’, just keep swimmin’.
Stay safe and stay well Everyone. ‘Til next time.
