Connor swam up an age group for two of the relays. He and his friend, Tanner, watched some of the older kids' events.

Rob made it to watch a few of the events.
(He doesn't have the patience for the entire event. We left
the house at 10:30 and didn't get
home until 7:30. He would never have made it that long.)
Connor's individual events included an IM,
backstroke and breast stroke.
It was such a hot day! Swimmers had to find a way to stay cool
between events. Connor and his friend Noah spent some
time near the cool mist fan.

These are the 10 and under Southland swimmers. Connor
either swam against some of them in the individual events or
swam with them in the 10 and under relays. I have really
enjoyed watching Connor improve his swimming skills while at the
same time making new friends. Too bad none of them go to the same elementary as Connor.
Checking the results as soon as they are posted is very important.
If you look closely you'll see Connor in the middle of the group.
This year Connor swam as a 9 year old in the 9-10 year old
category. Although he didn't place as well as he did last
year as an 8 year old, he did well and had a great time. His
team won the event by more than a 1000 points
or more. GO SOUTHLAND SHARKS!!
