Results of March 21, 2010 Masters Swim Meet at C.W. Post (Short Course Yards)

Rob Todd:
200 free 1st 2:13.17
50 br 3rd 39.23
100 br 3rd 1:16.78
100 IM 1st 1:09.66

100 br 1st 1:10.36

Ken Longo:
50 fr 1st 25.45
50 bk 1st 28.87
100 bk DQ*

*Now, here's the story on Ken's DQ as related by Ken himself on April 7, 2010: "I jumped the gun, looking for that tenth-of-a-second edge. Instead of an edge, I got DQ'd!" After the DQ which happened even BEFORE the starters gun went off... Ken hopped out of the pool so the DQ in the 100 Back was also a DNF.

Ken decided since he was DQ'd not to swim the 100 but to save himself for the other two races. And, based on his times above, that was a pretty good decision! Our congratulations to all 3 Huntington area swimmers for their results at this CW Post meet.
