Owen Ansel and Chris Hansen opened up the long course season for TNT as they competed at the 2014 Southern California Swimming January Senior Invitational in mid-January. The meet, hosted by San Clemente Aquatic Team, fielded teams from Southern California, San Diego Imperial, Nevada, and a rather large contingent from Mexico.
Owen Ansel came home with two fourth place finishes, one in the 100 breaststroke where his time of 1:11.62 was an improvement over his lifetime best established last year at Junior Olympics, and the other resulting from his 2:36.99 in the 200 breaststroke event. Owen improved five of his seven events, and he scored top-16 in four of them: 50 free (12th – 26.43), 100 breast (4th – 1:11.62), 200 IM (14th – 2:19.80), and 200 breast (4th – 2:36.99).
Chris Hansen came home with his two highest finishes, also in both breaststroke events, as he finished 10th in both. His 100 breaststroke time was 1:13.78, while his 200 time was 2:40.46. Chris improved his 50 freestyle time to a 27.48.
