Huntington YMCA Tri Group Second Annual Swim Meet

Thanks to Bob Miller, (with a little help from his friends), the Huntington YMCA Triathlon / Masters Group held it's Second Annual Swim Meet on Sunday, April 6, 2008. The 4-lane Norton Pool at the Huntington YMCA was the site for this well-attended event. See pictures and video below:

Swim Advice and Instructions are always a good idea at this "learning" meet -- thus the video below just might serve as an on-going refresher course:

Here's a video of the First race of the swim meet!

Everybody is looking relaxed and happy in the picture above -- but check the video below and be sure to watch it till the very end -- that's when you'll find out just how most people feel after doing a 100 IM -- listen for the words "I feel horrible!"

I was about to feel horrible also as my right hand man Rob got up from the scorers table to swim in the 50 Breast. Than goodnes he swam it fast and made it back to the table before last year's confusion broke out all over again. But Rob was back before the Relay's started and here's a video (below) of the first relay that had all 4 lanes filled and just about everyone up swimming and cheering!

And who won? The Green Team or the Orange Team? Well, not that it really makes any difference since everybody who swam won just by trying -- some for the very first time -- but just to keep the record straight... the Final Score was:

Orange Team 113 and Green Team 128!

But wait... What about the Relays?

The Orange Relay Team received 30 points and the Green Relay Team received 22 points so, the Final tally is:

Orange Team - 143

Green Team - 150

Coach Bob was heard to say, "Wow! What a close meet, eh? So, Richie's team won...lucky, just lucky! Verrrrrrrrrrrrry close, eh? Richie did have more swimmers than me, though...haha. (Wait till next year!)."
