More for BCHS Alum(s)

Boys' sprint relay record swum at region lasted only two weeks. Even on second shave/rest, they dropped another half second to 1:32.97. The 400 f.r. dropped four seconds and made it onto the Top Ten.

The girls' relay added a bit in Austin, so their record stands at 1:44.34 - one tenth faster than '95 gals.

I've kept up the all-time top-ten lists if any of y'all want copies. I've got Keith's e-mail address. Anyone else can put their address on as a comment and I'll send it.

Before I leave B.C., I'll try to find someone who will take care of it.

*"Pistolwhip" Pryor should celebrate her seventh birthday later this month. You figure it out.

I think high self-esteem is overrated. A little low
self-esteem is actually quite good...maybe you're
not the best, so you should work a little harder.

Do not think of knocking out another person's
brains because he differs in opinion from you.
It would be as rational to knock yourself on the
