This is championships weekend for the Yankee Cluster of YMCA swimming teams, so we’ll be spending a remarkable amount of time at Middletown High School waiting for a watching Iona and Calum swim.  Friday night was mercifully brief as Calum was swimming in the second event and that was us.  He did really well, knocking a second off his time in the 100m Backstroke.

Sunday will be the longest day as Calum has three races and Iona four.  While it may lead to some discomfort from sitting for so long, the whole thing is actually a lot of fun and the kids get amazingly into it with shaved heads, dyed  hair (assuming there is some left), colorful outfits, strange chants, and even some swimming!

Go Stingrays!
