Six Swymnuts traveled to Stanford to compete in the 2014 Bay Area Senior Games at the BEAUTIFUL Avery Aquatic Center. Our team swam very well with everyone medaling in their events. Mary Piel found out she was a distance swimmer with a terrific 500 Free (and a new team record). Cokie swam 50 Breast for the first time in a few years, setting a new team record. Germana swam four events and never stopped smiling, getting two new Masters best times in two events. Nancy also swam four events with solid times in all four and a strong 200 Free. Jane had a good meet (all 4 events) and would have had a best time in the 100 free, except that somebody moved the wall, costing at least 3-4 seconds when she had to return to touch the dang thing! Nick Winer had an eerily similar experience in his 100 Free, just getting a toe touch on all 3 turns. Still, he managed a 58.16, his second best time this year. Makes me wonder what his time would have been! His 50 Free was just off his best time he set at Nationals two weeks earlier. We had fun in the sun! Full team results are listed below.
