2011 GRPA State Championships

My 3 daughters all qualified to go to the GRPA State Swim Championships.  Two of them competed Friday and the oldest competed on Saturday.  We packed the family up and stayed 2 hours away knowing it was just too far to go back and forth.

Day 1 neither of the girls made it out of the prelims to go to Finals but they did compete well.

On Day 2 my oldest daughter swam.  Her relay teams made it to the Finals and she did a great job at her individual events finishing but didn’t qualify for the finals. After Prelims there is a 2 hour break and then everyone that qualified for the finals comes back to compete.  The top 8 in each event swim again to determine the winners!  There is a small parade with music highlighting the teams that are competing.  My younger kids were the team Mascots with the older girls who were competing.
