Lynna Hodgson (PR Assistant): Day Eight Friday June 10, 2022 This morning my alarm went off at 5pm. I got ready and left the room. I met up with the swimmers, we went to breakfast and then took a shutter to the swimming venue. They don’t start until 9am. We got here at 9:10am. I checked in the media, they told me where I could go and the places I shouldn’t stand to take pictures. I met up with Kayla at swimming venue. We grabbed lunch and ate on the shuttle. We got back on the shuttle and went to the award’s venue. We split up to cover footage. We came back to the campus. And grabbed lunch then went back to the awards venue. We got all of the photos and videos, and we saw our friend, the famous Brandon Schatsiek! He was helping hanging out awards. It was a fun day! I got to go through fit feet! I was really happy about that! Another day tomorrow!
