We made a couple mistakes today on relays…..trying to elevate your game and do amazing things sometimes takes a gamble and some consequence........ A great TEAM effort today and I was very proud!!!
THIS WAS ANOTHER GREAT MEET FOR THE WAVES!!!
I was not sure what to expect today from the WAVES…….
I have my goals and expectations, parents have their own…..
ATHLETES HAVE THE POWER TO BE GREAT or not…….They chose to be GREAT!
-I thought this was a day that our swimmers decided to get it done and it was one of our best days while here. Much work has gone into this run of greatness for the WAVES. Much sacrifice from each and every family attending. This was a great meet and a great weekend for the WAVES!
