one happy camper

The past two days I have been with my high school swim team at the regional meet.  This is my last season as coach (due to my work schedule it just isnt feasible anymore). Boy did we go out with a BANG!

One of the kids that I have coached since 6th grade is now a senior.  He won both of his events and broke the school record in both of them! Records that have stood since 1997 and 1998!  One of my other boys (also a senior) won one of his events, came in second in the other.  He broke the school records in both them and even set the regional record in one! Both boys qualified for the state meet and are ranked in the top 5! I had one girl (a jr) get second in both her events and qualify for state and get school records in those events as well.   I had 3 relays qualify for state as well.  a total of 9 kids going to state!

I can't tell you how PROUD I am of these kids! 


  1. Congrats to you and the team! That is incredible!

  2. Oh my word!! That is just amazing!! Congratulations, Coach!!

    States is going to be hard, huh? *hugs*
    You will know exactly how I feel around graduation time this year!!

  3. Yes I will! I had a large group graduate last year that were and always will be me "babies". But this group is going to be hard to say good bye to as well!

  4. Congrats to the team, thats awesome, you have to feel so proud. I remember when I placed sixth at state in the 200 free, I am still proud of that
