President Jack Allison submitted the following report about SaddleBrookers at Nationals in San Antonio.
Congratulations to our nine SaddleBrooke swimmers who represented us at National finals.
Hop Bailey, Jack and Jill Fritz, Ken McKinney, Harold Peter, Doug Springer, Glenn Tewksbury and Ke and Karen Wang.,
They had 13 top three finishes, which is outstanding!
Leading the pack was Glenn Tewksbury with a National Championship in the 100 Back.
He was second in the 200 and the 500 free, third in the 100 free and the 100 IM, and fifth in the 50 back.
Ken McKinney also had a National Championship in the 50 breast as well as a third in the 100 breast.
He managed to take better than 5 seconds off of his 50 breast seed time in a finish of 37.77.
Harold Peter and Jack Fritz finished second in the 100 breast and the 1000 free, respectively.
Coach Doug managed four third place finishes in the 400 IM, 50 breast, 100 breast and the 200 fly.
His times were also significantly lower than his seed times. 1:09.99 looks like a PB on the 100 breast as well as 2:35.67 for the 200 fly.
