Swim and Boat Carnival

swimboat11Three days after the boy’s had their first Indian event, the girl’s Indian Games competition schedule opened on Saturday with the 48th annual Camp MacCready Swim and Boat Carnival.  Each of the five tribes was broken into two section– for younger and older campers.

“It was really windy,” said Lily, of the Seneca.  “It was hard doing the ‘treading the water’ race, but I won.”  Thanks in part to LIly’s efforts, her tribe also took the overall competition (see results here).  The Tuscarora, winners of the boy’s track meet, took second on the water to retain the overall Indian Games points lead.  “We were so close to winning,” lamented Anna H, of the Tuscarora, who won her event, the Playak relay.

“We have really good swimmers, so we did OK,” was the silver lining conclusion from Sienna, of the Onondaga, who finished last.  Only slightly more optimistic was Emma R, of the always beleaguered Mohawk.  “We didn’t finish last, and that’s perfectly OK!”
