Who loves a senior? Everyone!

Our last home swim meet of the 2009-2010 has come to pass and with it another amazing Senior Day. Signs and gifts and adulation filled our pool Friday night for our seniors. And this excitement led to an amazing team effort for our last dual meet of the season.

Late Friday night, after the excitement and the cleanup, I was talking with my wife about all the big moments. I soon realized there were so many highlight-able swims that our meet really was filled with one highlight after another. Our kids had lifetime bests, season bests, and came out ahead in so many close races to the finish.
Our men, fueled by senior excitement, won several races and looked great doing it. The women commanded the lead through the meet and it all came down to the last relay. This is really the pinnacle of swimming exhilaration. With races swum and applause ringing out, the women finished the meet with a 3-point victory and both squads will take heaps of confidence into our Championship meet in just under two weeks!
