Gulf Champs

A sampling of our 4 day regional meet at
University of Houston
We just got back...Although the kids didn't make any finals, they swam well, got a few best times, and we used it as a tune-up for the big TAGS (Texas Age Group Swimming Championship) in 2 weeks! This was really a tougher meet, because 11 and 12 year olds are scored together. And, there is a BIG difference between 11 and 12 year olds. With a few exceptions, the 11 year olds often look like 10 year olds, and a lot of times the 12 year olds look like 14 year olds! It really depends on where they are in their maturity cycle! But, at TAGS, the 11 year olds are scored seperately, so that's the meet they are peaking for. It was fun, but we are tired!
