Lots of Div III swimmers, current and past, participated in the Swim Across America-Boston event this past weekend. The Harbor Relay had about 60 swimmers. The water temp was in the low to mid 50s. Then the Nantasket Beach swim was a balmy 62. Ben Bullitt of Williams tied for first in the one mile swim. Trinity and Tufts Swimming tied for fundraising total. Also saw swimmers from Hamilton, Middlebury, Amherst and Kenyon.
Olympian included Tim McKee (one of my heros), Craig Beardsley (looking a little round around the middle but super nice guy) and Eric Wunderlich who still looks as if he could still put together a great 200 breast (though he did appear a little woozy on Saturday morning).
For those not in the know this is a fundraiser for cancer research and it takes place across the country.
