Swim team

September 30, 2011

Last night the seniors on the swim team were honored during the meet with Southeast Polk. Our Swedish exchange student, Michelle, has been a great asset to the team, swimming strong breaststroke and freestyle. With daily practices and tough races, she has learned what ice packs are all about, and had to make her first visit to a chiropractor. I guess they don’t have those in Sweden. She says the therapies are helping. A couple more meets to go before regionals.
I am learning to love those swim meets. They are exciting. It’s a tough sport. How do they do the butterfly or make those underwater turns? I really admire those girls.
