Swim, girl, swim!

The summer swim team has come to an end. It's a happy time, and a sad time. We now get to be on more of a "summer" schedule, but we'll miss our friends and all the fun that we were having!

Alexandra did wonderful at Divisionals! On her freestyle, she cut off more than 7 seconds!!! More than an 18% improvement!!! Then, on her backstyle, she dropped almost 10 seconds!!! About a 23% improvement! Wow! It doesn't get much better than that. And, she was less than 1/2 a second from qualifying for an invitation tournament with her backstroke. What a great way to end the year! And, I can't wait for next year to see what she can do!!!

(photo - Divisionals is an indoor meet at a high school. While the girls waited for their turn to swim at Divisionals, they played card games & played with Polly Pockets.)

P.S. Several days after this post, the coach (our neighbor) brought over Alexandra's Divisional ribbon! Out of 76 girls (6 & under), she placed 15th! And, the top 15 get ribbons. So, this was her first (of many, I hope!) Divisional ribbon. She was also very happy because it was... pink!
