Day One Comes to a Close
The Mac Crutchfield Invitational got off to a roaring start with the Friday night events. Many swimmers posted best times and there was a lot of team spirit. The energy level of everyone involved dissipated in the 8 o'clock hour as everyone had been awake for at least 16 straight hours. By 9:30 the bus was finally heading for the hotel and with an obscene amount of Hungry Howie's pizza in the cargo hold. By 10:30, everyone had overeaten and many were punch drunk from the one-two combination of sheer exhaustion and way too many carbohydrates. Everyone retired to their rooms for showers and rest. Goodnight, all. Goodnight, Ryan.
