Annalise’s Busy Saturday

Posted by Roneil Icatar On 6/20/2010 11:15:00 PM 0 comments

Annalise had a very busy day this past Saturday.  She is part of the Norwalk Zeus swim team and is also part of the Norwalk Zoomers fast pitch softball travel team.  On Saturday, she had a softball game up in Bethel, CT which we had to get up very early for.  It was a hot day and she played the whole two hour game.  Once that game was done, we had to drive all the way from Bethel to Wesleyan University in Middletown, CT where she participated in a giant swim meet.  I’m usually wiped after a baseball game, and I can’t imagine having to swim competitively afterwards.  Anyway, Annalise ended up swimming in 3 heats:  100m backstroke, 50m butterfly, and 50m freestyle.  I should not that this was Annalise’s first time competing in an Olympic sized swimming pool.  Her usual swim meets are in a 25 yard pool, and most of her heats are only 50 yards.  We were curious to see how she would do in the slightly longer 50m and the really long 100m heat, but she did great in all of them.

All in all it was a great day.  We finally got home 130 miles and 12 hours later.  Check out the pics (click the picture to see a large version) and videos below.
