Do they think my daughter is Iron Woman?

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

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?

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

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.

If I can get her into a club or some training, I think she could be competitive in the fly. Her time keeps dropping.
