    You made that 485 x 2 look easy. I bet you'll hit at least 515 in your next meet.

    Thanks man. I will definitely try to improve from 501 to something more. I hate calling out numbers because I am superstitious, lol.

    By the way, I see that you live in South Carolina. That's my home state, and I lived in Georgetown. It's not too far away from Sumter.

    Georgetown is a bit nicer than Sumter.

    You don't have to call out any numbers, we'll do it for you.
