Montana Swimming is very proud of BAC swimmers Peter Thompson and Jack Leuthold as they tackled a monster of an accomplishment for a grueling straight hour and a half of hard nonstop open water racing in the USA Swimming Open Water Nationals 7.5k race in Tempe, AZ.
Peter took 18th place and Jack took 35th place!
This was a great experience for all four BAC boys (Jack Leuthold, Peter Thompson, Brayden Arnold, and Michael Van Kuren) this weekend and another very fun and amazing trip. On Saturday there was a club race event separate from the USA Swimming Open Water Nationals and Junior Nationals which all four boys competed in for the experience and the results were as follows:
Jack Leuthold won the 2.5k club race.
Peter Thompson placed 2nd in the 2.5k race.
Brayden Arnold placed 2nd in the 5k race.
Michael Van Kuren placed 7th in the 5k race.
Below are a few photos from the weekend races.
