Mark Walters

At Long Course Nationals in Cleveland, all but one swim by Anthony Higgins and Bryan Rivera set new team records.  More importantly, they are placing high and scoring a lot of points for GERM.

Bryan won the M35-39 400m free and 200m free, and finished 3rd in the 100m free and 200m IM.

Anthony had two 2nds (M50-54 100 and 200m back), two 4ths (M50-54 50m back and 100m free), and one 3rd (200m free).  He also broke the team record in the 50m free.

Most of the team records they are breaking have lasted for two decades.

They scored a total of 78 points between them, which placed us;

   50th out of 140 clubs

   38th in the men's standings
