Sea Serpents!

Well, the Sea Serpents did it; they beat the Sleepy Hollow Sea Lions, who had not previously lost a dual meet in 19 years.

That's right, 19 years.

Not one of our Kids were born when they last lost.

This meet was insanity and high drama all day; every parent and kid was watching on the absolute seat of their pants. I've never witnessed a youth sporting event quite like this. It. Was. Awesome.

The team really, really rose to the occasion and both kids swam pretty well, too. The Little Girl had two 2nd place finishes and had three best times, which is always the goal. The Little Boy had a kick ass backstroke, taking nearly two seconds off his previous best.

All in all, a great day. The team partied for an hour after their victory, the coaches sprayed bubbly apple cider, all the kids and parents were in the pool - good times and a swim meet that a LOT of people will never forget.
