Thanks for the article Rachel, Kristen does a great job! The highlight of this meet was how close it was, and that the other two teams were leading at points. Just the way it ought to be. By the way, another awesome article would be about how Braemar is nipping at the Sudley Seahorse's heels, and even was winning during their divisionals for some part of it. I would like to see a meet report (biased to whoever was submitting OK with me), just to get a feel for how it played out.

Maybe if all the other swim teams posted their results Swim Mom could compile everything into a summary and post something she is interested in reading. Remember, you don't have to read what you're not interested in. I thank you, Coach Kristen for taking the time to do this for our team every week. Let's hope other teams follow suit because I, like Julie, would love to have updates from around the league. Thank you also, Rachel Leon, for publicizing our results. We need for our community to understand how important swim is for our kids.

You assume a lot to state that it is "not even an interesting read to anyone outside of the Lancers team." Even though I have a child on the Old Bridge Breakers team, I am still a member of the Lake Ridge Community and recognize many of the names listed by their proud (and superb) head coach. Congratulations to them, their team mates, their fantastic coaches, and hard working parent volunteers on a job well done! I think it's great to see their names in print and hope that more coaches will follow Kristen's lead and submit their team results in the future! P.S. I hope the Lancers find a home, it would be a crying shame to see them go!!

Exactly Kathi, Our kids have a deep passion about swim team and I hope that some day, the egos can be put aside and parents can come together to support all the kids.
