friends, I love Texas and I love UT Swimming. Here's a short film contest featuring Shatzie Crouch. A true pioneer woman! She was married to former UT Swimmer & Luckenbach founder Hondo Crouch. The grandmother to Kit & Sky Patterson. Sky's wife is producing this short film. Please help me vote this film to the top. If they win, they'll be able to finish the film. Please vote for "She Could Be Anywhere" http://tmb.fm/1vJpdB5 @DaynaDeHoyos Stella Haus Films
“She could be anywhere, pulling weeds in the field, walking with the horses, picking rocks out of the cattle trough, maybe someone picked her up to go to Dairy Queen,” I said.

This is championship week for so many teams across the country. Here's a tip for coaches and swimmers as they prepare for the weekend & races. Don't forget to drink lots of water days before the meet. You'll need to stay hydrated. You also want to make sure you're getting to bed on time. Also, make a big effort to stay away from stressful relationships. If you have a friend/family member who can cause you stress, create a respectful boundary until the meet is over. You need to be able to focus on your races. Low stress relationships=peak performance. Finally, don't get cold sitting in the stands waiting for your race. The way you win the race is you do all the little things right i.e. staying warm & stretching. Win in the little areas and you'll set yourself up to potentially win in the big race. Most importantly, remember it's just a race so leave it ALL in the pool and go for it! -Josh
Happy Mother's Day to all the great moms who help their kids Dream it. Believe it & BREAKOUT!
If you haven't swum before and you're older than 18, you should consider swimming Masters. Most cities have great Masters programs but SA has one of the best with Susan Ingraham leading M.O.S.T (Masters of South Texas) It's never too late to enjoy the benefits of the sport of swimming. http://youtu.be/-si7cLpHkxU
I had a blast in the land of perfect weather!! Thank Anthony & Caitlin for rocking the clinic.
Josh Davis, Anthony Ervin & Caitlin Leverenz refused to have swimming "thrashers" at Cabrillo Threshers. They all were moving towards great technique and nice streamlines. This is a group of champions who will BREAKOUT!
