Region 9 Swim Meet
Region 9 Swim meet was held in Cedar City at there new aquatic center that had only been open for a week. We were all more than a little worried that it would be a flop because this was the first meet they held there and they hadn't tried out any of the equipment to make sure it worked properly. But everything went great. No computer or scoreboard problems at all. Joel and I were timers. Which I love because you get to sit right down on the floor wear the actions is. Otherwise you have to sit upstairs in the bleachers where it's hot and no one can hear you cheer. So day one - Shayne was in the 200m Medley Relay (Mickell Bracken, Alex Meyer, Ashton Turek and then Shayne) and they took 2nd place. Then Shayne swam the 200 Free and took 1st! The boys Medley Relay took 3rd (Koby Sullivan, Kaden Dinsmore, Nick Rabbit & Jordan Vane). The next day we timed again and Shayne swam the 100 Butterfly and took 1st! Then her relay team swam the 400 Free and took 2nd again (same girls). So Shayne ended up with 2 first and 2 seconds. The girls 200 Free Relay took 3rd ( Katrina Lee, Amber Harper, Charee Russell & Taylor Hancock).The boys 400 freestyle relay (Kyson Sullivan, Zack Paddock, Kyle Buck & Mitchel Hutchings) ended up taking 1st place! Which was AWESOME! It also qualified them for state! It was a race to remember. They out touched Snow Canyon by 2tenths of a second. It was a really fun tournament. Now we are looking forward to State the 4th & 5th of Feb at BYU.
