Making Waves at the City Swim Championships
Clark and Bennett had an awesome swim season. They swam this year at Mesa Jr. and had a lot of great one-on-one coaching due to the small group at that pool. They were able to advance to the Championship Meet held at Shepherd Jr. High. The top 8 swimmers from all the schools qualified to swim. The final results for Clark: 3rd in backstroke, 4th in freestyle and 4th in butterfly. Some of the other swimmers were at least a foot taller, but he did a great job hanging with them. Bennett was 1st in freestyle, 1st in the IM and 2nd in the butterfly. He tied with another boy for "High-Point" (1st place overall for the 9/10 boys division). It was a long, hot night and we appreciate the awesome cheering section that supported the boys.
