All the cousins swam in the butterly meet held at Mesa Jr. It was the first time they have all been at a meet together prior to the championships. We missed Samantha and Carie who were out of town, but the other kids were awesome! Bennett, Matthew and Clark received blue ribbons for there amazing prowess. (I think that breaking the Sabbath Day rules to watch the Olympic Swim Trials has really paid off!) Clark's butterfly relay, in which Bennett was also able to swim due to being short one swimmer, was one of the most exciting races yet! Clark swam the fourth leg and outreached the competitor at literally the last second to win 1st place. The swimmer that took second was devestated, which takes a little fun out of the win, but the boys swam like crazy and were amazing!
