11-14 State Meet Report
Celilo, Faith and Shea had a great weekend of swimming. Celilo was 16th in both the 1650 yd freestyle and 400 yd Individual Medley. She achieved Sr Champs/Region XII qualifying times in both the 200 yd breaststroke and 400 yd IM as well as best times in the 1650 free, 400 IM and 200 breaststroke. Nice work!
Faith, in her very first State Swim meet, did personal best times in both her events. She even swam two time trials in the 100 yd freestyle and came out with a best time in that event also!
Shea took the bull by the horns - she tied for 2nd alternate in the 50 breaststroke. They had to do a swim off. She was nervous, but both she and the other swimmer dropped 1.5 seconds off the time they had done earlier that morning in a race that left everyone wondering "did they tie again??". However when the final results came out, Shea was victorious by a tenth of a second. WOW! Huge drop. She also did a best time in the 200 IM the day before also.
Another great championship meet for our team. One more week to go - here we come Mt Hood!
