Pink Ribbon

We just found out that she won a ribbon at Saturday's meet!! Sixth place in the 100 yard freestyle, girls 11 - 12, with the official time of 1:25.71. There were numerous heats of this race ... I don't remember exactly how many, but there were probably at least 50 swimmers that she was timed against. And she didn't do the wall turn since she only learned them a couple days before the meet. So all in all, we could say she was fast!

We also just learned that she was selected by her coach as Swimmer of the Meet. Her team had 68 kids at the meet. BBST selects one kid from each level as Swimmer of the Meet ... four kids in all. She was selected for her group.

There were 8 teams at the meet; a few hundred kids. The teams came from as far away as Seattle to Bellingham. Her next meet is coming in a just a couple weeks.
