NBAC sent three swimmers, Theresa, Julia Gorman, and Jill Johnson to Olympic Trials in 1984. After making the United States Olympic Team in 1984, Theresa won two gold medals in Backstroke in Los Angeles. Theresa swam to an individual gold in 100 Backstroke and won her second on the USA 400 Medley Relay Team. That year, also at the Olympics, former NBAC swimmers Patrick Kennedy (USA) and Ricardo Aldabe (Spain) placed in the top eight in 200 Butterfly and 200 Backstroke respectively.
Tim Pierce and Carter Warfield coached with Murray for the first fifteen years of the club's existence. In the spring of 1985, Tom Himes joined the staff as Head Age Group Coach. Patty Stephens began in the fall of 1987.
1986 brought a new name to the headlines. Julia Gorman flew to a silver medal in 200 Butterfly at the Goodwill Games in Moscow, U.S.S.R. that summer. She also won the first of her three U.S. National Titles at the Long Course Summer Championships in Santa Clara. Also in the winter of 1986-1987, Murray and Patricia Stephens purchased Meadowbrook Swim Club in Mt. Washington and began planning for the NBAC's third decade and beyond.
