My niece, Sarah, is on a YMCA swim team. She started swimming last summer and is doing really well.
These photographs are from her state YMCA swim meet. She placed 6th overall in her age group and her team placed 4th in the girls. The team placement is remarkable in that they only had 12-13 swimmers total, including the boys, compared to 20-40 for the top three placing teams. Placement is on a points basis and the top three teams simply had quite a few more swimmers to earn points than my niece's team did. So, placing 4th was quite good for them.
