Oliver Spencer competes at TAGS Championships.

   Oliver Spencer (14) represented Swim Houston Aquatic Center (ShAC) last weekend at the Texas Age Group Swimming (TAGS) Championships in Arlington.  
   All distances in meters (50m course).  
   Scoring through 16 places.
   There are over 140 USA Swimming teams in Texas - 51 sent qualified athletes to this state championship meet.
   ShAC finished 16th out of those 51 teams.  
   We only make a small contribution to the ShAC program.  
   It’s a coach-owned club that took our kids on board and we gain so much from being part of that one-of-a-kind team.
   Spencer’s finishes:
   50 freestyle - 14th - :25.73
   100 freestyle - 16th - :56.29
   200 freestyle - 24th - 2:08.13

   Oliver was just a little off his times from last month’s San Antonio meet, but that’s up to me to figure out - he has done everything we asked of him this summer!
   Whether he’s first or 16th, he’s not satisfied - he always wants to get better.
   That’s the attitude we’re looking for in everyone involved in any athletic program, right?
   There’s never a guarantee that their work will result in best times.  
   Still, they keep showing up each morning at 6:15, ready to splash at 6:30.  
   Then, they do it all over again each evening.
