This past Sunday was a big day for our swimmers….Sectionals.
At Sectionals you have to swim certain times in order to qualify to go on to the State meet. Even if you have swum that certain time all year, you must swim it at this meet to qualify. It's nail-biting and intense and lots and lots of hoopin' and hollerin', and sometimes tears.
Tenths of seconds count.
At this meet, the swimmers are up against themselves and no one else. They all know their times to beat and each and every single swimmer rises and falls by those times.
I'm so happy to report that our girls qualified to go on to State in all the events they swam in. Not to say there wasn't some nail-biting going on up in the stands with their Daddy and I, but….they did it.
It's on to State, baby!
(On a side note….our oldest son choose not to swim this meet because he really needed a break after the intense training of high school swimming….and lots of lots of sleep)
