Michael Miller and Alexandra Buscher went to 
Knoxville, Tennessee with Coach Rey
representing Dad's Club at the 
2012 Speedo Winter Junior Nationals (short course).

Day 1 was off to an excellent start!

Michael dropped nearly 3 seconds in the 200 IM,
which got him into the A Final. In below video he
swims in lane 7, second from the bottom.
Alexandra managed to get into the C Final in the 500 Free,
dropping more than 9 seconds. Her time of 4:53.28 set
a new DADS Open record. She also swims in lane 7.

Day 2 had the duo tear it up even more

Michael again dropped big time (7.22 seconds) in the 400 IM,
which got him into the Consolation Final. Below video shows
his prelims race (lane 1 at the top).
Alexandra finished 2nd in the Consolation Final (10th overall)
in the 200 Free, setting her second DADS Open record at this
meet in 1:49.23.

Day 3 both had a couple of events each, with Michael dropping 5.4 seconds in the 200 Breast. The rest of the day was spent 
soaking in the atmosphere of this grand event.
