Kayla Sets a Swimming Record

Kayla had her first high school swim meet on Thursday.  She swam in one event, the 50m freestyle.  When the race started, Kayla made a great entry.  She was the last one coming up to break the surface.  But when she did, she was right with the pack.  That was great.  But, when she started her stroke, we were really shocked.  Ty and I looked at each other and I think each thought "Who is this girl?"  Kayla ended up finishing 2nd or 3rd in the race.  We're not sure because the scoreboard wasn't working during her race and the team is more concerned about times than positions.  But, this is the thing.  Kayla beat her own personal best by five seconds!  I've always known she has potential.  But, she's always held back in her races.  After just a few weeks on the swim team she went flat out smashed her own personal best.  Way to go, Kayla!
