Success!!! Tyler is the 12th fastest 9-10 year old 50 yard breaststroker that swims for a YMCA team in the state of Wisconsin. Not half bad!!! Went back to the hotel for rest and relaxation...but couldn't pass up a pool all to themselves! Tyler became coach Tyler and gave her a ton of advice!!! Then a team pasta dinner that night...the team tried to get one of their coaches to drink a concoction they created. Poor guy!
Tyler was awakened to Jeff's Race Day Playlist...a little Rocky to get him pumped up! Waiting and freezing to get in and get good seats. Looking like a serious swimmer with his gear. The fan club is ready in the stands!!!
The team had a fun night of food and games to show support for the 16 state swimmers. Tyler was the youngest and only 9 year old to qualify. The lights were turned off, and the kids entered the room one at a time with a spotlight as they were introduced and their qualifying events were announced. Super cool!
