Swim Meet

Matt was at RMSC October Kickoff meet today. Here are the video clips of him swimming the 100 Back and 200 Fly. It was an open meet which means that all 13 and over swimmers competed in the same event. He is 13 so just about everyone he swam against was older. He is the one with blue jammer and no cap.
