the 500 is fun, but that fly would kill me.

also, those are two VERY different events... small team?

did they put her in a relay too?

No relay this meet. The team was actually so large they had to make some cuts.

She was in a three freestyle events her first meet: 50 free, 100 free, and 200 free relay, and she qualified for the Southern Connecticut Conference meet.

No 500 today. She anchored the 200 free relay, and did her leg in 32 seconds. She also had the fastest time on her team in the fly.

200 medley relay
50 free 32.5
100 fly. 1:44.86
100 free. 1:17.75
200 free relay. about 34 seconds. 2:31.66 slow lane'd

I don't know why they put her in the 200. She would have been better in the 400.

50 free was my race in high school. I eventually got to racing the 50 takingone breath, after 4 strokes out of the turn.

we closed every practice with 10 "hypoxic" 25s... dive from the deck and swim the 25 without breathing... then jog to the other end and do it again. I loved those... many others did not. :lol:

but I would drown if I did the 100 Fly. :lol:

This is true in CT too.
Or it was as of 4 years ago when I was still judging HS and college swimming & diving.

The next meet is tomorrow. Hopefully they only use use her in two or three.

She wasn't DQ'd from the last event, so maybe there was a rule change.

after the season, talk to her coaches about their contacts and how they see her progressing. (expectations for next year, focusing her on specific events, strengths and weaknesses to address in school the off-season)

the coaches hold the key to getting them to the next level, and can shed some light on the college programs as well.

does she play other seasonal sports? or just swimming? does she swim with a club year round?

Could be, but I can't see them changing that particular rule.

More likely that the judges were from the Waterbury group who are notorious for missing that kind of stuff.
What school was the meet at?

Foran in Milford?
Not sure if that's the New Haven or the Waterbury group's school.
Could be either.

But it's an easy rule to overlook, unless you go over the paperwork early (which is a part of the job) and even then coaches switch the line up around.

If she were my kid, I'd advise her to remind the coach that only 4 events are permissible so she stays honest.

Stupid coach tried to put her in five events again today. Rebecca refused and told the coach she was only allowed four. The coach asked "do you think they'll notice?"

Dumbass.

Another meet today. She went to a pasta party last night.

The Law-Foran meet is next week, and it's at 6 p.m. so I can go. I'm psyched.

She dropped another 4 seconds last night.

Tomorrow is the big one: Law vs Foran, then on to the SCC qualifying round next Tuesday.

She's anchored other races, but she was 2nd this time. The first girl stopped and started about 15 meters in. That was the end of that.
If I can get her into a club or some training, I think she could be competitive in the fly. Her time keeps dropping.

Almost exactly her seed times. She didn't move on, but I'm proud of her.

50 free 33.71 *(seed time 32.56)
100 free. *1:15.67 (seed time 1:15.30)

She definitely wants to join USA Swimming.

I meant the SCC finals, but no states either. With practice, I think she can be a lot faster.

She's only a sophomore and has plenty of time to develop the necessary skills.
