My youngest niece had her first regional swim meet recently. It included swimmers from SC, NC, and Virginia. She swam in a total of nine events over three days and was very tired at the end of the meet.
She had three top ten finishes, two more top twenty finishes, and in the remaining four events she finished 21st or 22nd. We think she did really good for her first regional event. Especially as she has only been swimming for two years.
The venue was the same for her recent state swim meet. The lighting was just as bad and she had worse lane assignments. She was either on the other end of the pool from the stands, or in the closest lanes where she would be blocked from view by the coaches. I was still able to get some photos I was happy with through all of this.
