For the second year in a row Thornton Masters has taken 2nd place at the Colorado State Masters Swimming Championships. Thornton took 2nd out of a field of 40 teams from through out the state and in the process qualified several swimmers for Nationals. It was a tight race for second between Thornton and its northern rival the BEE GEE’s but in the end Thorntons depth (43 swimmers) was to much for the BEE GEE’s to overcome. DU Masters the host team took the team title after finishing a disapointing third place last year. Congratulations to Jodi Lee, Jared Foster, Scott Forrester, Caleb Wright, Denise Clark, Eduardo Cruz, and Kurt Anderson for competing in and finishing the Brute Squade (1650 free, 400 IM, and 200 Fly) and to Jodi Lee and Vickie Engle for winning the high point award (most points earned by an individual at a meet for their age group).
