• STATES...the big one

          Its the one they've been waiting for all year long...the States meet.  This is where all the best high school swimmers from all over the state come to compete.  Well, our little Laura didnt disappoint.  In her two races she came in second in both of them.  I know she wanted to win, at least one of them, but she's still a Freshman...To finish second in the state is still quite the honor!!  Totally incredible!!!....so, get my Cowboy hat out because her time was so good in the 50 Free that she qualified for a Qualifying National tournament in Texas.....yeah y'all!!!   Well, we have to work out the logistics of it but this just might be Lyn's turn to bring her so i'm gonna have to ground my ten gallon hat.  But we'll try like hell anyway.
         Laura said that this was her favorite picture....Mr and Mrs Ring and Nana.  Emily, Erin, Momma, Kara, Alice and yes....Jimmy came for the event today.  It was very nice of him to come support his sister. Catherine and Lizzie were also there cheering her on. 

          Here she is on the podium under the watchful eyes of Mr. Ring.  Mr and Mrs. Ring joined us today.  Laura was thrilled as were all of us!!!  He always has such great advice for her and she listens to him.  Right down to the jug of honey !!!




         Here is Laura lining up to jump in the water during the 400 Relay....The team made it on the podium for that one too..forget if they got fifth or sixth place....but it was quite good.
