At the fall meeting of the SaddleBrooke Swim Club All-Americans, 14 members of the team were recognized and presented with a certificate and patch indicating they were a United States Masters Swimming Association (USMS) All-American Swimmer in 2018 for their top short course yard competition times. This designation is quite a prestigious recognition. In order to achieve USMS All-American status, a swimmer must have the fastest swim time within their age group in the entire country in a sanctioned USMS event that year. The following members were recognized as USMS All-Americans: Jill Fritz, Corinna Goodman, Carol Honeywell, Gene Hildreth, Terry Ludwig, Jan Miller, Ken McKinney, Ted Pierce, Craig Shaffer, James Spiegel, Doug Springer, Patricia Tewksbury, Gloria Tolaro and Al Worth. Furthermore, the 400 Free Mixed Relay 75+ Team consisting of Al Worth, Ken McKinney, Jill Fritz and Corinna Goodman set a National Record by a time of 5:33:36 which was nearly 22 seconds off the old record time! A huge congratulations to these SaddleBrooke Swim Club members!
