|I did get a cute pose before the first race!|
|game face on - ready to go!|
Not only did she finish first, she did it in 48 seconds which is almost 10 seconds faster than her time in the spring. Cate's stroke looked good and she was moving fast!! She rushed over to show off her to cheering section which included my parents, my aunt and my cousin the blue ribbon!
|first stop was to show her proud daddy!|
|and then "surprise" grandma and Kim|
Of course because she won that one she was ready for the backstroke which she placed 4th in last season.
|ready for backstroke|
|off she goes|
|First Place for Backstroke!!!|
|a hug for sister!|
After this we set up for breaststroke which is the new stroke she just started this season. She had a little problem getting started since she wanted to do free but there were a couple new to this race so she wasn't the only one. But she got into it after a little while and did a great job.
|Cate is the middle lane slightly ahead of the girl next to her at this point.|
|a little "I did it wave to the crowd"|
