santa claus meet in Eau Claire

I traveled to Eau Claire alone on Thursday morning. Our 10 year old wanted to go to basketball practice, our 6 year old wanted to hang out at home with working Dad and our 15 year old was swimming 4 events at the Santa Claus meet in Eau Claire. I made some returns on Christmas gifts and got to the pool to watch his final two events. He did well in the breaststroke, but there was a swimmer who blew everyone else out of the water...come to find out he will be swimming for Ohio State in the future.

here is some information on him from Swim Swam top 20 NCAA Swimming Recruits in the Class of 2017:

9. Paul Delakis – Eau Claire YMCA Marlins – Eau Claire Memorial High School – Eau Claire, WI **Verbally committed to Ohio State**
Best Times: 200 IM – 1:46.36, 400 IM – 3:48.35, 200 free – 1:36.10, 200 breast – 1:58.37, 100 breast – 54.81
Delakis is the class’s best 200 IMer, and college coaches love the versatility of elite IMers. He’s also one of the better breaststrokers in the class and is sneaky-good at the 200 free for relay purposes. Keep an eye on his 400 IM, where he dropped from 3:53 to 3:48 in 2015.

Nice job ACO--I think you really love swimming and it's a joy to see you in the pool.
