I stopped by the Tiger Aquatics Memorial Day Swim Meet looking not for a sports action shot, but rather something more feature-like. I didn’t know what I might find, but I thought it was worth taking a look. I got some action shots just to keep myself busy and a nice portrait of a swimmer adjusting his goggles before thet start of a race , but nothing else was jumping out at me. Then the 10-and-underĀ 50-meter butterfly heats started. 9-year-old Alice Horton of Stockton dove in and swam hard. A few meters into her race, her goggles slipped from her eyes. With each stroke they creeped further down her face until they hung below her chin. She didn’t win her heat, but like a champ she overcame her disadvantage and finished the race.
