Sometimes a mom needs to brag. So please excuse me on this overt bragging post.
My son William came so close to qualifying for the New England Age Group swim meet at Harvard on April 1st in the 25 yard butterfly last weekend, he was literally 3 tenths of a second off the time. He got a 20.72 and he needed a 20.30. His stroke always seemed to be backstroke, so we were surprised when this little guy pulled out a heck of a butterfly. His coach recommended he head to a meet this weekend called the Last Gasp Meet. Truthfully – it’s the last swim meet any swimmer has the chance to qualify for New England’s. It really is a Last Gasp meet.
William was pumped to try and make it, I was trying to not talk too much about times because I didn’t want him to get upset if he didn’t make it. Well… he made it. He dropped 2 1/2 seconds and pulled out an 18.04!
You can hear he scream for a split second when he made it! 🙂
