    So I'm a freshman and 15 years old. I swim for my local swim team, and I have to admit, I'm pretty good. So about 3 weeks ago I went to a Sectional meet up in Oklahoma and there were lots of scouts there.

    I live in a pretty small town where swimming is like the least favorite sport and is counted out in most instances.

    So I get an email yesterday from a coach up in southern California saying that my times were excellent and he would love to consider me for a scholarship and said that I would do well there.

    Now you'll probably say, "Oh this happens all the time". But where I live, nothing like this hardly ever happens, and considering I'm a freshman, it's pretty neat. I'm uber excited about swimming now and I'm wondering just how many emails I'm gonna get. And what's funny is that I would be in the top 10 for every single event at that college, as a freshman in highschool.

    Just thought I would share. Comments are welcome.

    Hah, I wish. No it's some college called Concordia University.

    My best event is probably 100 breast. I go somewhere around a 1:01 (shortcourse yds)
