|wow, what a week. big tens is officially over. there were some incredible moments on the part of our team. we won all of the free relays, and 9 out of 18 total events, but still managed to take fourth, which is no big deal. it felt like first because of the way our team stayed excited and together. i'm so proud of every single person on our team and the way they performed inside and out of the pool. some of the swims this week were mind blowing. justine won all five of her events, and not just won, but dominated. foty fo sho, baby. not to mention sotc. lindsey's 50's 100's and 200's were all absolutely incredible. our 400 free relay won the event after being seated in the first heat, which has never happened in big ten history. we shattered a few big ten and pool records, and had so much fun cheering each other on and being genuinely excited when people had good swims.
i had the meet of my life. i dropped massive amounts of time in every event, and even though i wasn't even close to making it back in anyone, i'm really excited about it. i have a feeling i'm going to be even faster next year because i know how hard i'm capable of working and i know what to expect now. i know our team is going to be amazing next year, because we're only losing a few swimmers and we have an awesome freshman class coming in. i can't wait to start the next season.
sounds strange coming from someone who couldn't wait to be done a couple of weeks ago, huh? i was so broken down from getting the crap kicked out of me at practice, and i wasn't sure how it was going to pay off for me in the end. now i do. now i know that i have the ability to swim a hundred times faster than i ever thought possible, and that i have the most incredible team behind me all the way. this year has been absolutely great because of the people who shared the journey with me. i will never forget all of the hilarious memories of my freshman year as a member of the michigan swimming and diving team.
