That was a roller coaster ride of a meet today. Just when I thought our wining streak had ended, our team came storming back. The score was tied 135-135 after breaststroke, but we outscored them 57-33 in fly, and then won 8 of the 12 relays, to finish the win with a score of 232-188.

Coach Jon also asked me to pass on this message:
“When I was addressing everyone today at Joe’s, I forgot to mention something important. After the meet, Greenbriar’s team rep complimented our kids for how well-behaved and humble they were. This kind of compliment means just as much to me as the way the kids swam.
It’s one thing to win meets, but it’s even better to win meets the right way: graciously, with sportsmanship and kindness. According to Greenbriar’s team rep, that’s exactly what we did today, and I’m very proud that I can pass that message along to you.
