Provincials Day 1

I'm exhausted! Huge day but a long day. If you're not already following me on Twitter, do it so you can get live updates on whats going on at the meet. You can find me at coachmikehhbf.

Matt Fox won the 13 year old boys 100BK with a time of 1:04.89 (just 2 tenths of a second out from where Kyle Haas was at this time 2 years ago) and was 5th in the 800FR with a HUGE new club record of 9:33.45. Matt was exhausted but happy with his results.

Kyle Haas came second in 50FR with a new club record of 24.62 and moved up from 7th to 4th in 400IM with a new club record of 4:45.27. Kyle was mostly smiles with some winces of pain after his 400IM. A great competitve swim that told everyone that he's better than just 50s. Not bad for only being in the 16 year old age category for 5 days.

Emma Fender broke her HHBF club record with a new time of 3:08.34. It was excellent use of a bonus race. Speaking of great bonus races, Mitchell Krafczek swam an outstanding 50FR, beating his best short course time by .01 seconds (New PB of 26.89). Aaron Brautigam was right on top of his best 50FR while Trevor Burwell added a slight bit of time. Britney Dortona swam her 7th 800FR of the month which was a little off of her best, but still swam very well considering the circumstances. Nolan Haas ripped off time in both 100BK and 100FLY, making some brilliant progress in the LC season.

What a great way to start out the weekend! Stay tuned to TWITTER to get live updates because I'm not sure if I can stay away to blog every night when I get home.
