We are excited about our team and how many new swimmers we have along with many who have been on the team for a very long time. Our first swimmer of the week for the girls has been with us for three years and is no stranger to competi- tion. Although gymnastics is her passion she also has made her mark in the swimming world. Last year was a tough season for Arwen Dow- num; illness kept her from swimming most of the summer season, but she is back this year, swimming stronger than ever. Our first meet against Ferry Farm last week showed how valuable Ar- wen is. Arwen swam the third leg of Antiques, Collectibles, Gifts & Specialty Shops Largest Indoor Market in Southern Maryland Over 100 Small Shops Open: Wednesday- Sunday 10-5 ANNUAL INDEPENDENCE DAY ANTIQUE & COLLECTIBLE AUCTION July 4th, 9 a.m.- 2 p.m. 1-I K]LUCTION IIOUSE Auction every Friday at 6 p.m. Estate Management Services Residential & Commerical Real Estate Estate Auctions Appraisals Business Liquidations 5015 St. Leonard ltd.

She placed 7th in the girls 9-10 25 free with a time of 18.83. Then, she placed an impressive first in the girls' 9-10 with a time of 17.95, beating her nearest competitor by a full two seconds; and she placed third in 9-10 girls' 25 meter breaststroke with a time of 24.92. Her last event was the breaststroke leg of the girls' junior medley B-r.elay. Sharks head coach Elizabeth Guth rie is-z: a firm 'beliver in Downums contributions to the team; 'gtrwen works hard at practice every day and it shows with her performance at our meets; Guthrie said. "Way to go, Ar- wen, keep up the good work!" Our boys' swimmer of the week is brand new to swimming. Although older brother AJ, and older sister Sarah are accomplished swimmers on both the year round Rappahannock Raiders and the Sharks, swimming is a whole new world for six year old Sean Green. Sean is very serious about his swimming. He works hard everyday, and has already perfected diving off the blocks. Sean's first event in our meet with Ferry Farm was the 8 and under boys' freestyle B-relay, who finished fourth. Later, he swam the 6 and under boys' 25 meter freestyle, his first individual event, and placed fourth with a time of 1:04.57. "Sean shows great promise as he continues to learn more about swimming every day;' Guthrie said. "We're glad you're on our team!"
