Age Group last short course time....

This weekend was Conner's last Age Group State short course swim meet. Next year he will have to swim with the big boys! (which, hello....he does have facial hair starting to grow!) This weekend he swam a TON of events.

Friday he swam the 500 freestyle and the 400 Medley relay. He dropped 6 seconds in the 500 and swam a 5:06. Just to give you an idea how far he's come this season, he started the season doing a 5:45.

Saturday he swam the 200 Medley relay, the 100 fly, 200 freestyle and 200 freestyle relay. He dropped over 2 seconds in his fly, doing a 57.57 and came back in finals doing a 57.43. The 200 free he had a little add. Oh, and he also ripped off about an inch of skin off his big toe during the 200 free. :(

Today he swam the 200 Individual Medley (added 1/2 second) the 100 free (dropped 1.5 seconds) and the 200 fly in which he dropped over 7 seconds swimming a 2:08....and the 400 free relay. We will be heading back tonight for him to swim the 200 fly again in finals.

Relay for Life

Caitlin is participating in the Relay for Life for cancer research. Her swim team has put together a team and Caitlin's goal is to raise $200. Here is the link if you would like to support her in her race for a cure.

It is a great cause. Everyone know someone who is suffering or who has lost the battle to cancer. Let's help the Illini girls make a difference!
