Finally I think we can all see the light at the end of the tunnel. The season is coming to a close, and for some, it finished this past weekend.
The majority of those who traveled to the Cavalier Invite at Virginia are officially done with the 2012-13 swim season! There were a lot of fast swims at that meet, which puts the rest of the team in good spirits heading into Ivies.
One of the most surprising turns of events was senior Nick Johnson’s record-breaking performance in the 100-yard backstroke. Congrats Nick, we will all get to see your name on the board for at least another year!
A select few swimmers who competed at UVA will continue to train over the next week and a half, at which point the final Ivy team spot will be decided. On the women’s side, the league is weak in breastroke, so the spot will likely go to a breastroker, but anything could happen!
In the mean time, the rest of us are trying to enjoy our extra sleep, as morning practices have ceased and total yardage is dropping more and more by the day. We are all very anxious to see the results of a long season of hard work.
