Olive Chapel Otters vs. Eagle Ridge
Emily had a swim meet last night, her first of the summer swim season. It was at Eagle Ridge in Raleigh, and thankfully I was not volunteering. Of course, the benefit of volunteering is you're not bored.
Summer swim meets consist of "main events" which are scored, and "heats" which are not. The top swimmers typically get to swim in the main events.
Emily got to participate in her first ever relay events. She swam the backstroke leg of the medley relay for one of the Otters 7-8 girls relay teams, and her team took third place. She also swam the anchor (4th) leg of the freestyle relay at the end of the meet, and took third place in that race as well.
In the individual events, she was in main events for both freestyle and backstroke, and in heat 1 for breaststroke and butterfly. She finished 3rd (of 6) in freestyle, and 2nd (of 6) in backstroke, won her heat for Breaststroke, and finished 4th or 5th in Butterfly.
Overall, an excellent outing. She had a good time, and won some place ribbons. I'm anxiously awaiting her times to see if she set any personal bests.
