swimming

This past weekend was girls conference. The meet took about three hours which is an hour longer than normal. However, the diving started at 9am and the swimming didn't start till 2pm so it's a good thing I didn't have to go to the diving part. Anyway, it was a big thing for the girls to beat this certain school JENCO (that's abriviated). When we swam them at a dual meet we beat them pretty good. Then they had the nerve to put in the newspaper something to the affect that they were going to beat us at conference. They actually said that! That's a little weird isn't it? and just plain wrong. So our whole goal at conference was to beat JENCO. We knew going into the meet that we would not get 1st 2nd or 3rd so it was our goal to get 4th. At the diving break in the meet we were tied with JENCO. We knew that we had our work cut out for us. Someone overheard a parent from JENCO say, "basically this is just a meet between us and seymour" So now we knew how serious this was. Well, the meet went on and we inched ahead by one point and then became tied again. Then we were ahead by one going into the last relay. We had our relay stacked and they didn't. So we came in fifth in the relay and they got seventh. So we won! We beat JENCO. We got 4th place at conference. Which is good I guess for the kind of year the ladies are having. Lots of personal bests were made. Seconds were dropped. It was a good meet. Last night was Senior night at our pool. Only the girls swam against a small Catholic highschool. It was a good meet, we won. And our seniors were honored. The girls season is coming to a close rather quickly. They have Sectionals in one week and then that might be it. The boys will go till the end of February. Here are some pictures from last night's meet. Enjoy!
