Well, last night was finally the swim banquet! It was an awesome evening! Brody stole the show; it was like a sweep at the Oscars! He received "Rookie of the Year". This award is given to a swimmer who has truly contributed to the success of the team by earning points for meets and actively participating in relays. The awardee does not have to be a first year swimmer, just one that has not lettered in Varsity yet. He also received the "Will to Win" award, along with his relay team, for their efforts at the State Finals. Their relay switched it's swim order at the last second, and fought to stay ahead. In the end, they took first in the conselation finals. He received a certificate for swimming in the top 16 at State Finals. He also lettered in Varsity for the year. And, finally was awarded All-American Academic Swimmer. I never been more proud! He was gliding on air. Thanks for sharing in my joy!!!
