Four male swimmers qualified and competed at the NCSA Junior National Meet that took place in Orlando, Florida over the March 20-24 weekend. The meet was once a replacement for the USA Junior National meet when USA Swimming chose to eliminate the option for athletes. The National Club Swimming Association (NCSA – not to be confused with the NCSA for the National Collegiate Scouting Association which often asks for money) was founded by a team of coaches that valued the importance of a “Junior National” meet and created an event that gained in popularity to such a degree that some may consider to be a contributing factor for the return of a USA Junior national meet.

Wesley Coles was our highest place finisher with a 39th place finish in the 200 fly event (1:52.67). He improved four times including the 50 yard fly (24.24), 200 yard free (1:44.27), 1500 meter free (16:51.23) and 800 meter free (8:55.66). Our next highest place finish was Chris Nolan in the 200 fly (1:54.37) which was also a time improvement. Nathan Rhea finished 106th in the 200 breaststroke (2:12.18), while Colin Landweer finished 121st in the 50 free (22.17).
