Meet of Champs 2017

Tuesday, June 27th, was our Meet of Champs for summer swim team. Sadly we did not get to have our last regular season meet because of crazy storms coming through so Addie and Preston didn't get their last chances to improve their times (which Addie was really pumped for). Preston only qualified in Freestyle but both girls were in every event. Addie actually ended up as our team's top seed for freestyle, backstroke and IM!!! The night before some of the other divisions had their meets and ended up with long weather delays so we were nervous for Tuesday, especially since we had bad luck last year, but luckily the weather cooperated and we got everything in! It was miserably hot for awhile, but I didn't even care as long as the kids got to swim all their races!
The kids all swam really well and dropped time in pretty much every race. One of the highlights of the night was Ella's two relays breaking the division records. Everyone was really excited, especially the medley relay which they crushed by 2 seconds. The Millers and my mom and grandma braved the heat and stressful crowd situation to come and cheer on the kids for most of the meet! It was a fun night, but we were still all relieved when it was over :-).
And just for fun, here are our past years at Meet of Champs... 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012 and Ella's first year of swim where she learned to make it across the pool, 2011.
