My favorite swimmer. A wee bit nervous for his first meet with his new team. He really wanted to do well.
New team. New cap.
This was one of my favorite pictures. I volunteered second half (a requirement with our new team), so I was down by the pool. I loved looking up and seeing my fellas right after one of Eric's races.
My swimmer - getting in the zone.
Jumping up and down to warm up.
On the block.
And he's off!!!!
(loved my job by the pool)
He did so great! He swam 5 events - 100 yards each (4 lengths of pool).
Freestyle - He took 3.92 seconds off his time coming in at 1:10.46.
Backstroke - He took 4.21 seconds off his time coming in at 1:16.44.
Breaststroke - He took 4.93 off his time coming in at 1:42.94. This one made me super happy. This particular best time was 30 months old!!! I was itching for that one to come down.
Butterfly - He got his first ever time in this event with 1:34.95. I actually cried after this one. So proud of him for completing the 100 fly for the first time!!
Individual Medley - He took 2.34 seconds off of his best USA Swimming time (he actually had a few seconds less at district this summer) coming in at 1:28.38.
Then they got to play in the adjoining water park.
So proud of this kiddo and all of his hard work. Looking forward to some adventures with the Stingrays.
