    THANKS to the thirty-one amazing athletes who participated in the 2016 USMS Postal Swimtathlon League!

    Patrick Brundage of Brundage Masters (his own team!!!) took TOP HONORS for men, and Bethany Lee of Hawaii Masters (via Stuttgart, Germany) was the overall women’s CHAMPION.

    The 2016 Postal Swimtathlon League was a diverse group of 21 women and 10 men, representing 12 states (PA, AZ, MT, OR, SC, FL, NC, CA, MI, HI, AK, and WI) and two countries (United States and Germany).

    Twins Haley and Tirion Sheafor of South Carolina were the youngest women at 22 years, and Ramon Mercado of Montana (via Puerto Rico) was the youngest male at 33.

    Charlotte Sanddal of Montana was the oldest woman (and competitor) at 94 with William Grohe of San Francisco Masters taking senior honors for men at 83. BOTH Charlotte and William completed ALL FIFTEEN events including the 200 Fly and 400IM!

    Of the 31 entrants, 19 successfully accomplished the entire Postal Swimtathlon League Challenge (13 women and 6 men).

    Special thanks to Coach Tim Waud of the Oregon City Tankers who motivated several of his swimmers to test themselves by stepping into several new events.

    Each quarter (STAGE), swimmers were expected to complete a “Pentathlon” of events. The First Quarter consisted of the stroke 50s and the 100IM. The Second Quarter was made up of the stroke 100s and the 200IM. The Third Quarter focused on the stroke 200s and the 400IM. Finally, in the Fourth Quarter, participants could challenge their previous times from ANY stage.

    In the end, the goal was to have results in all fifteen “Swimtathlon” events and a cumulative 15-event time.

    Times were converted to Short Course Yards regardless of the course (LCM, SCM, or SCY), and it didn’t matter if they were achieved in practice OR in a meet, from the blocks OR from an in-water start. The Postal Swimtathlon League runs according to the honor system.

    League standings were published monthly with STAGE AWARDS and CERTIFICATES presented quarterly.

    In addition to a new, fun event, a portion of each entry went toward Flow Swimmers’ clean water initiatives on Flathead Lake in northwest Montana. The league donated nearly $200 to the cause. THANK YOU TO ALL THE PARTICIPANTS!
