Day 2 of the Carrollton meet

No pictures today, I wanted to pay attention. Sunday usually goes faster and there are less heats so we have to be on our toes to make sure the kids get to where they need to be on time. As it was, we almost missed bull penning Ryan because we were cheering for Jared and she was in the next event, she made it in time but barely. The kids did fantastic to say the least. We are so proud of them, they did their best and they had a great time. I still think the highlight was getting to stay in a hotel. If you beat 4 personal bests you got a treat from the coaches, it was a surfboard necklace for the boys and a flip-flop necklace for the girls. Jared got his and Ryan got hers. Here's the scoop:

Ryan's 50 Free-52 nd of 58 BUT her split time was 24 seconds!!...posted a 1:07.54 (-7 sec)
Ryan's 25 Breast-33 rd of 50...2nd in her heat, the ONLY 5 year old to swim...posted a 36.78
Ryan's 50 Back-38 th of 55...fastest 5 year old..posted 1:07.66 (-11 sec)
Jared's 100 Free-30 th of 39...posted a 1:49.05 (-1.5 sec)
Jared's 50 Breast-15 th out of 29...posted a 56.09 (-3 sec)
Jared's 100 Back-20 th out of 32...posted a 1:54.22 (NT)
Jared's 100 IM-results not in yet...BUT he came in FIRST in his heat!!! with a 1:52.38 (-5.5 sec)
**Results from Jared's 200 Free posted, he was 31 of 32 BUT you have to think he swam from one end zone to the other-twice...I don't think I could do that-especially in 4 minutes!

Jared had 3 probably 4 top 20 finishes, that's awesome. Ryan was swimming kids that could possibly be almost 9-so she did great holding her own. I'm going to see if there are "B" time standards posted on the internet for the 8 and Under group, I'm sure there won't be any standards for the 6 and Under...

Next meet is in two weeks, when Kevin is at his soccer tourney in Savannah--that will be a busy sports week in the HomerHouse.
