What an awesome weekend and exciting start to the 2019-2020 Short Course Swimming Season for Y Hub Fins!!!
October 4th-6th, our team traveled to Flowood, MS to attend the Makos Fall Invitational with our largest contingent of swimmers in recent history from both the Hattiesburg and Petal locations.
New personal best times were established, substantial time drops were recorded, and several of our swimmers qualified in multiple events for the State Short Course meet in February! Congratulations to Amelia Hutchinson for qualifying for the State meet for the first time!
Our kids showed up to swim, and they made their presence known; but of equal importance, the bonds between teammates and their families were strengthened, in and out of the pool. The Hub Fins Family cheered for and encouraged each other through moments of exhilaration and moments of defeat. Our 3 team guideposts: Community, Technique, and Excellence, were put to the test this weekend in the Mississippi heat, and our team family came through with flying colors!
Thank you to our host team for a wonderful meet! Thank you to our parents and family members who timed for us. Swim meets are dependent upon our volunteer forces, and you guys made us proud! Thank you to our Junior and Senior group swimmers who lovingly guided and herded our younger swimmers during the morning sessions, and entertained their younger siblings who were still present for afternoon session by playing card games, drawing, playing charades, etc. when we all knew that you were wanting to prepare for your impending events. And, most importantly, thank you to all of our swimmers who showed up ready to compete!
If this past weekend is indicative of what is to come this season, we have much to anticipate!
