Nineteen CONN Masters swimmers with a total of 82 swims and 8 relays participated in the 4 days.

Rob Duguay won a $10 gift card for swimming exactly his seed time in the 100 IM with 1:15.00. Steven Akers and Robyn DeMarco made the honorable mention list for times within .10 seconds of their seed times. Two Connecticut records may have been broken: Steve Akers in the Men’s 40-44 500 Free with a 5:02.77 and Steve Akers, Arthur Gunzl, Robert Duguay, and Alexei Bachuretz in the Men’s 25+ 800 Free Relay with a 8:22.21. These times still need to checked and confirmed as records but were great swims regardless. Thank you to everyone who made the weekend so much fun.
