All Star Meet 2015

The evening of Monday, June 29th, was the All Star Meet for Ella Bella! She had quite a crew there cheering her on and had so much fun! There are 31 teams in our summer league and each of those teams has 10-25 9/10 girls, so to even be at the All Stars meet (top 16-24 in each event) is quite an accomplishment. We have figured out with Ella that at this point she does better just focusing on one or two races so we had her really concentrating on doing well on her IM and her Breaststroke, her two best events. The IM was first at this meet which was awesome because usually it's right before breaststroke, not leaving her a lot of recovery time between the two. She did amazing on both of those races and did well on her freestyle and backstroke as well considering those are not her strongest strokes. Her fly was a little weird again. I think it's hard to go from a 25 yard sprint to a 100 meter long course race and then back to the 25 again and she definitely does better at the longer distance. We are so proud of her and had so much fun cheering her on!!! Now we can just concentrate on her Katy Aquatics stuff for the rest of the month before getting a break from EVERYTHING swim until school starts again Wooo Hooo!!!
