All-Star Swim Team Competition

It is such an honor to be able to qualify to compete at the All-Star Swim Meet. 

A swimmer has to swim their event in a certain time to be able to qualify to swim at this meet. 
It's a Saturday and Sunday event.  We were so proud of our kids, because they chose to swim only on Saturday.  This was a sacrifice, especially for Porter, because his favorite event, breast stroke was held on Sunday.  Both kids are strong swimmers in butterfly, and that event was held on Sunday too.  They both swam really well in their freestyle and backstroke events.  Sophie made it to the finals, and placed 5th for the 7 year old girls.  Porter and Sophie both got personal bests in freestyle.  Way to go kiddos!

Swim Team Awards

We had a great swim team year! All of the kids worked hard and really improved. 

Preston swim with confidence from one end of the pool to the other, and always with a smile!  He was excited to add his swim team trophy to his shelf.  He even got a 6th place ribbon one time in backstroke. He continues to improve his backstroke.

Sophie had a great year too.  She moved up in age group.  So she was competing with the older girls.  She made it to All-Stars in backstroke, freestyle and butterfly.  I love watching her do the fly, she's so little, just moving through the water!

Porter really took off this year. He made it to All-Stars in all of his events, backstroke, breast-stroke, free-style and butterfly.  He made the top ten list of high point winners for our team. He placed in all of his events at Divisionals. Individual and Relays.
