    With the Pentathlon and the Garnet and Gold meet already under our belts, the Florida State Swimming and Diving team's season has officially kicked off!  These two meets really encourage the team and allow us to really get pumped up for the upcoming season.  The pentathlon is first, which is where everyone on the team swims the 50 freestyle, 100 breastroke, 100 backstroke, 100 butterfly and 200 freestyle.  It is a really enjoyable, team meet that brings everyone together as there are some people who can only do the 50 freestyle for example, but they are really working so hard for the team in every other event.  It is great to see everyone working hard not only for themselves but for each other.  The Garnet and Gold meet is where the team is divided into two teams and we race the dual meet schedule.  It creates a really great atmosphere between the two teams and creates an even greater atmosphere at the end when we all come back together for the Florida State cheer!

    The weekend of the Oklahoma football game (9/24/11) was a great weekend to be a Seminole.  The swimmers and coaches tailgated at the pool with the recruits that we had in town.  It was a lot of fun where we jumped off the diving boards, lounged in the pool, played corn hole and ate some great food catered by PoBoys.  We all enjoyed each other's company after a great workout in the pool! We got a tan and relaxed before a football game that will never be forgotten! The energy that was created in Doak Campbell Stadium was incredible and it was great to stand with the swim team enjoying this memorable moment together.  After a fantastic weekend of workouts, tailgating at the pool and watching a nail biting football game, it is a great time to be a Seminole!

    The ladies travelled to Miami this past weekend to face ACC rival Miami and also Florida Gulf Coast's swim team.  It was great to have the girl's team together.  We posted some great times and I think we were pleasantly surprised with where we are following a hard week of training.  It was really exciting and this has pumped us all up for the rest of the reason.

    The whole team leaves for the All Florida Invite in Gainesville this Thursday.  It will be awesome to have the whole team together for the first away meet of the season.  Be sure to stop by Morcom the following weekend (10/14/11 and 10/1511) as the two meets we will be swimming cover the Senior Meet and our Gold Letter meet while we race LSU on Friday afternoon (3pm) and Alabama and South Carolina Saturday morning (11am).  Be sure to check out all of our results on!
