Dan Leonard, featured above from SCY Regionals, sent this note from SCY Masters Nationals in Clovis California:
"... Many, many B-70s. Virtually everybody on SCAQ was in one. Looked really good with the black and yellow SCAQ caps.
Our age group this meet is much faster than, Austin, Texas, last year. Several 50+ went under 1:50 for 200 free. I think Rowdy Gaines won in 1:43 something.
All SCAQ swimmers did well. Erik Hochstein won the 200 free, Jenny Cook won the 200 breast. Our men's 35+ 200 fr relay won with a time of 1:27:00 - that is smokin'.
I went 7 seconds faster than last years nationals: 2:26.67 (PR) and once again placed 11th in the 200 breast ! Our age group is insane.
Saw a few suit malfunctions - one guy's suit spit right up the but crack just as he did his start on a relay - and no modesty suit!
It is very hot, but meet is going very smoothly, with two, eight-lane courses going simultaneously. ..."

NICE JOB SCAQ!
