Swimming dream

So last night I dreamt of glory and aquatics. I was this short blonde swimmer, and I was the best in my high school. It was the week of the state finals and I was training and running and all that junk but the whole week I was wearing a yellow speedo and yellow tanktop that for some reason I wore the whole week, running and everything. I was jogging around some town I guess I lived in when I noticed some red blazer following me suspiciously so I turned into an alley and they peeled out trying to beat me to the end of the block on the street. I hid between some of the houses and they kept going by and the driver looked just like Tricky. I was listening to sports radio while I was running later and they were talking about Mike Prior who was my cousin, (he's a pitcher for the cubs) and was being criticized for having to be totally drunk so that he could pitch. I was ashamed but it was so true.
Then came the day when our team was going to the state finals. The pool was about as long as a football field and it was in a huge red cave that was lit very well with lights from like a baseball stadium or something. There were like 5 floating islands which were like our team's bases or something and 5 events. There were a ton of people that had to stand up the whole time in a hallway to watch. Our team had my brother and sister, who were like 11 and 8 years old, and two other dudes and me.
The first event was amazing. My little brother, who looked like JTT was sitting on a seat strapped to the top of a shark cage and the event involved some sort of explosion underwater that would make him fly into the air and he would have to high jump different levels of telephone wires. My sister won some type of normal event and so did I and the other two dudes.
After we won the state championship trophy, Wisconsin's basketball coach recruited me to go there and play basketball and swim which are in the same season and really impossible to do both. Weird.
