Friday morning we headed to Cedar City
for the swimming finals. We walked into the
pool and it was full of people everywhere!
There were around 400 swimmers from
7 different teams - crazy!
It was such a long day, each race had
3-5 heats and it seemed to drag on
since there were so many swimmers
competing. The swimmers had to
come in the top 8 to move on to
Saturday for the championships!
Brooklin was swimming the butterfly,
backstroke and freestyle plus the
freestyle and IM relay!
She was debating whether or not to
compete in the IM and she decided
on the backstroke - I was hoping she'd
do the IM but the pool was longer in Cedar
and she said she'd get tired!!! (she maybe
a little stubborn)
She made it to the finals in the butterfly,
coming in 3rd out of 19. She came
in 13th out of 37 for the backstroke
and 7th out of 34 in the freestyle.
The relay team did awesome -
taking 3rd out of 9 in the IM relay
and taking 7th out of 10 in the freestyle.
(noting they beat both their times
from the previous week)
Brooklin did improve her times on
Saturday for both events she did -
Butterfly= 27:24 (4)
Freestyle= 21.72 (7)
I'm so proud of you Brooklin!
You did amazing in all your events
and did your best each time you swam!
All the swimmers that competed did
AWESOME and it was so fun cheering
them all on!!! I'm hooked on swimming
and I can't wait for next year :)

We were at the meet until 9:30pm and we were all starving!
We tried one place and they were closed so IHOP it was...
Us, Ludvigson's, Tobler's, Memmott's and Riviera's
invaded the back room at IHOP!
I think we finally made it to bed by 11:30pm - it was a long
day/night and the next day started way too early.
Warm-up's started at 7:00 and the meet was ready
to go by 8:00 but it went quick!
Thanks grandpa and Kirst for making the trip
to Cedar to watch Brooklin!
