what do you think of this?

At the UT Invite on Sunday, Dec 2nd Eddie Sinnott, SMU's coach, asked officials if they could do a 100 IM race (during the 15 minute break between then end of finals and the start of relays) because his swimmer Alex Hetland was about to go compete in a SCM championship. Then they thought we need some one to race him, so aaron peirsol agreed then several other swimmers got in on the fun. The line up was

Lane / Swimmer
1 Neil walker
2 alex hetland
3 aaron peirsol
4 adam ritter
5 ian crocker
6 dave cromwell
7 brendan hansen
8 (empty)

Ian was out in 9.38 21.05

Crocker's first 50 was phenomenal, but I think he went past the 15m mark underwater on his backstroke. His dolphin kicking is a true thing of beauty.

And I bet that all went past vertical on the back-breat turn, except for Ian, who didn't use it.

An amazing swim. They looked like they were having fun.

Cool! I had the opportunity to watch Adam Ritter grow up in the swimming leagues of Columbus, Ohio. It is nice to see him doing well. It is also enjoyable to see Tennessee Swimming still positioning their banner for full exposure. Go Vols!
