Tonight's swims ended with a phenomenal and inspiring set of 800 freestyle relays.  For the second year in a row the A relay has popped a 6:58 and shown tremendous heart as they raced for Bates at their best. Our B relay was stellar too, with many going lifetime bests and showing all they were willing to put it all on the line.  I couldn't have been happier with both relays.   In fact, both relays finished 4th in their respective heats... that is big time.

It was the first time this weekend I felt the entire relay was hitting on all cylinders - and to have both the A and B do it was a great sign for a strong Sunday.

Senior Night at the Meet!
Here are some more numbers.


Lifetime Bests
2011 - 15
2012 - 32

Night Swims
2011 - 10
2012 - 14

(Both relays missed school records by less than a hair)

Day 2 Points
2011 - 472
2012 - 596
That's cool.

Swim of the day?  Will Patton's 100 fly!  Ned and Hanley's 200 free split!  Tommy's 1:42.8.  Briggs making it back in the 100 breast.  Venka's two 100 fly's.  Mihalcik's 20 second drop in the 1000 and Huston's 100 back.  All made me smile big.

Gotta crash,
