GKISA Swim meet

Last Saturday was Aspen's last swim meet of the season. The meet was held on the UT campus in the new, state of the art Olympic pool. Aspen swam the 25 free, placing first in her heat (75th out of 220 over all.) She swam in the 25 back coming in 2nd in her heat and the 50 free (with a flip turn!) also placing 2nd in her heat. It was a fun meet. She did a great job and was a nice way to end the season!

50 free results. The top 9 went into the finals on Sunday. We saw later in the paper that the top finisher of this event had a time of 33 seconds. Way ahead of even the 2nd place finisher.

That is so cute! Seeing her jump off the blocks just made me smile...and flip turns...WHAT? Isn't she only 8? Holy Cow!

She taught Alyssa to doggy paddle and really inspired her to want to know how to swim. Maybe she will teach swimming someday!
