Sat Nov 9 & Sun Nov 10 MEET RESULTS SCM WOODLANDS TX

Got a late start on Sat left my home around 9:15
encountered some serious traffic on I-10 at Hwy 99
all traffic force to 1 lane then off the highway on to the access road,
It was backed up, meet didn't start till noon
when I finally got to the pool, the 50 bk started I was in ht 5 and ht 2 was in the water
I put on my racing suit and raced the 50 bk with no warm up
had no time to get familiar with the starting blocks or the turn

Sat, Nov 10

2 50 back
went 29.12

    Nice swims, Ande, especially the 50 fly and 100 IM. Sorry about the 50 back. Racing with no warm up would suck and I had low grips as well.

    thank you leslie
    I just walked in
    threw on my suit and got in the water for my race
    I found out after the race, Ross Davis said he grabbed the pipe under the block with a reverse grip
