The Shelby Water Otters had a great time dressing up for “The Git Up,” their theme for this year’s Parade of Athletes taking place at the State Swim Meet held in Sidney. The Otters closed out another successful swim season with all improving their times and bringing home a fifth place team finish from the final meet of the season.

This past weekend the Shelby Water Otters competed in the State Meet held in Sidney. All of the swimmers got new personal records in at least one, if not all, of their events! I really can’t brag enough about these kids who worked so hard all season and truly peaked at just the right time. I am so proud of each and every one of the swimmers who competed this season. It’s not easy for kids to get out of bed each and every morning to go swim, but they do, and their hard work really showed this season. 

The State Meet is by far the toughest meet we attend each year as we don’t see half the swimmers until then, however, everyone who attended really stepped up their game and showed off how hard they worked all year. I am so, so, SO proud of all of the swimmers and enjoyed every minute coaching this year. I would like to thank Alyssa Edwards and Doug Richman for helping me and the kids this whole season, without them I really couldn’t do it, thanks guys! 

This season we were put into Class A for the State Meet and came out fifth place. We had a few placers for high point as well, Logan Combs, Boys 8 and under, third place; Addison Richman, Girls 9-10, fifth place; Cami Blevins, Girls 13-14, fourth place and Maddison Underdal, Girls 15-19, fourth place. Overall, it was a great weekend and a great season. Thanks to everyone who followed along!
