Swim conference is done

I forgot my camera so no pics.... All that would have been seen would have been water splashing...

The Dolphins were 5th out of 8 teams the last time it was announced. Kaci took 3 out of 5 first places in her heats. Overall she never finished less than 6th place out of 8 teams. Usually in the top 3. Kali faired just as well. Her relays were not the quickest, but they did very well and finished over all in the top 6. Kali took a second place in the 50 yard breast stroke by only 7 hundreths of a second. We think it was just the way she hit the pad or that her arm was 1/2 inch shorter than the other swimmer who took first.

The conference started with warmups at 3 pm and races started at 4 pm. Kali finished her last event (event number 62) at 8:15 pm. There were 3 heats per event so a total of 186 races by the time girls were done. They did not swim all. Kaci was in 5 heats of the 186 and Kali was in 3. Five is the maximum number a swimmer can participate in. Then there were 2 more events after those.

It was a long hot night pool side but it is done and we are glad they did participate in swim team.
