Sophia's first swim meet

Tuesday was Sophia's first swim meet.  It was against Winfield - last year's league champions and obviously a much larger team.  It seemed like in most races 6 out of the 8 lanes were filled with their racers - all the lanes in some races. 

But Sophia worked really hard.  Her relay team placed 3rd in two different events.  And she improved her time in her freestyle by 12 seconds and backstroke by 15 seconds from time trials only 4 days earlier.  Plus, as Chris tells me, their pool was several feet longer than ours.  She swam in 6 events and was so ridiculously tired, but told me several times it was much more fun than softball last year.  She technically DQed her last event.  Out of pure exhaustion she stopped and put her feet on the ground to catch her breath.  But when the results came back they forgot to mark her as a DQ.  Lucky girl. 

Here are a few pictures from the event.

It was a lot of fun and we're looking forward to a home meet this Tuesday! 
Good luck Purple Wave!
