Yowzer! What a meet! It was record setting in more ways than one as TOEST had for the first time ever 13 swimmers at a meet… more than we had on the entire team during our first couple of years. Of those 13 swimmers it was the first ever swim meet for 4 TOESTees. The team put in altogether a total of 68 individual swims, and tack on 2 relay teams for a total of 76 swims… wow! Congrats to all, it was amazing to see so many smiling faces as I heard time and again how much fun everyone had, with questions already turning to when is the next meet, where, and what events will there be at that meet. FYI… its the Alderwood Teddy Bares meet, a link is below if you scroll down to the full list of MSO meets.
As for a meet overview… only three days before the meet we all receive an email sharing that a pipe had broken at the UGuelph pool, but the Guelph Masters who were putting on the meet – specifically Dawn – managed to obtain pool time at a pool just up the street, at the Victor Davis Memorial Pool. Although 6 lanes instead of the 8 at Guelph, the meet ran quickly and 3 heats of relays were possible despite the 4pm cut off time that we had to be out. As for results… still waiting for them to be uploaded to the MSO site, but as mentioned… the energy and the excitement at the end of the meet was the best result ever. Thanks to all TOESTees for coming out and making this a memorable event.
