Emily wanted to improve her backstroke so that she could swim without running into the lane lines and wanted to learn to do flip turns for both the front crawl and the backstroke. Lela wanted to improve her time in the 100m IM. At the first meet of the season on June 9, 2012, she received a time of 2:03:49. Her final time at Championships was 1:39:78. They were both very happy with their results and are excited for the final Invitational this weekend. It is aptly titled: Beat the Heat.
Here are some pictures from the preliminary races and videos from the finals:
