CIF championship week looms …

I know, I know … we’re all sweating it, too!

League finals are now history and it looks as though the SGV is going to have swimmers to reckon with at next week’s CIF-Southern Section swim finals.

Will it be Utama time in Long Beach???

Will Rachel Grant be rocking the pink nails again?

The more I cover swimming, the more it hits me that swimmers might have the highest IQs of any group of athletes in the prep sports world. I’m not calling anybody stupid, it’s just an observation.
I want to give special thanks to Matt Grant (Rachel’s pops) and Nancy Ferrell (Kirsty’s momz) for providing some great insight not only on their kids, but the entire local swim scene. It’s amazing how much info these two have. It’s amazing that they know extensively about other kids, not just their own.
It was great talking to the both of you and I look forward to seeing you at Belmont. Oh wait, I’ll be in the storage closet behind the stands typing away, so I might not see you. But if you do see some big thing running out the side door and onto the sand, please say hello.
