SC Nationals Wrap Up


Ethan Hallowell and Niko Micin had a good time racing against some of the best swimmers in the world at last week’s US Short Course National Championships.  The field featured World Record Holders, National Champions, and top College teams.  Both performed well for not being shaved or tapered. They did not get any life time best swims, but both came away with 100% season best times. 

  • Ethan – 50 Free 21.03, 100 Free 45.87, 200 Free 1:43.72, 100 Back 52.83
  • Niko – 50 Free 21.36, 100 Free 46.56, 100 Back 52.84

Former BCST swimmers Murray Longbotham and Keenan Natyzak were both in attendance and both had real nice swims as well.

Next up for Ethan is to get ready with the rest of the BCST Seniors for the Washington State SR Champs, and Niko is going back to his homeland of Croatia to compete in a national meet there.
