So, she has definitely got/gotten/become faster! After I finished walking with a mate, I popped into the bleachers to read/watch the last half hour of practice. By this point, they had swum thousands of yards. They were doing an interval set (where they have a specific distance to swim within a specific time and anything left over is their rest period before they start the next one...). They finished with a 100 free on the 1:15. She came in at 1:06. That's equal to her personal best swimming the 100 in a meet (i.e. off the blocks, not exhausted after two hours of hard practice....)

Go Swimmer Girl!

WOOOOT!

She placed in her first meet! 5th in the 200 IM -top 5 score.

But OMG does the coach get tight as a wire! This is a whole new level of swimming.

I was learning how to work the computer and the coach had tried to speed things up by preparing it all on her laptop. First of all, we couldn't load the meet data for the visiting team, then it turns out she seeded her swimmers wrong anyway so we had to hand enter all their entries. I was shown how to do it and did it very quickly.... we printed the heat sheets and then........ the guy who actually knows how to do the stuff shows up and works out that the coaches laptop does not have the right connection for the cable that talks to the timing system.

so we need to switch back to the pool lap top. which has nothing set up. and we can't find a data file to transfer the meet over. So we have to build the meet from the start, then import the rosters, then the entries, then merge them, seed them and then fix the problem caused by the visiting coach seeding stuff wrong.

The coach got really mad with us (well in our direction), even though it was her error we were fixing. But now i know how wound up she gets, i can let that pass!!!

They started about 15 mins late without us, we got it sorted by the diving and were able to import the times for the heats already passed, but that was crazy nuts. And, after the diving it was tied, so both coaches kept making changes to the line-ups. Mo-Jo (yes, that's the coaches name) was pacing the pool on every race, even the slow heat of the 500.

We won by 2 points.

Swimmer Girl was in the slow heat for both her individuals, but won both easily (as I knew she would because even though there were no seed times, i know who she is faster than......#crazyswimmom). I guess you don't put untried freshmen in the fast heats. After she placed, she got moved up from the C to the B 200 free relay, and they came in 3rd, also scoring points.

WTG Hebe. She was so pumped when we got her home, never seen her this "high" before. Had to force her to bed because it's freshman orientation tomorrow. early.

So... results are up, and include splits -times for each swimmer's leg of relays or events longer than 50y. OMFG, she did awesome. (to be a little unBrit there for a moment)

dropped
2 seconds (35>33) in 50 breast unbelievable
3 seconds in 50 fly (33>31) surprising as her coach hadn't even worked on Fly at this point (she did today and didn't change her stroke at at all -she has changed her free and breast (she's a breaststroker first, IM second, fly third)
2 second in 50 free (29.5>27.5) AMAZING

Splits from relays are generally faster than individuals but this is so much faster, and the fly is from the IM!

Her coach really moved her up in the relays for the meet tomorrow and I was kinda suprised, but now I see why.

Braggy Braggy Braggy -almost everyone is swimming the medley relay -we have teams A-H. She's on B. as a freshman.

Lots of pressure, though -and that's just what I feel!

Individual medly, one swimmer does:
Backstroke

freestyle

I know back is always first and free is always last. Not sure the order of middle two.

Actually it's fly back breast free so the swimmer can start from the blocks.

The medley relay is backstroke first (then breast fly free) because the backstroker will always start in the water so it makes more sense for them to go first.
