Swimmers Frenzel, Wormwood Record "B" Cuts at U.S. Championships
December 1, 2012
The Puget Sound swimming teams were represented at two different venues over the weekend as Derek Frenzel and Tracy Wormwood swam at the USA Swimming Winter Championships, while the Logger teams swam at the Husky Invitational.
Frenzel and Wormwood both recorded NCAA Division III "B" cuts in their respective events at the world class swim meet. Fenzel swam a 1:51.21 in the 200 fly, while Wormwood recorded a 2:21.81 in the 200 breast. Both swimmers set school records in those events at the NWC Championships last year.
On the final day of the Husky Invitational, four Loggers made finals and three recorded "B" cuts. Derek Frenzel, Jessica Jaynes, and Melissa Norrish all recorded the "B" times to lead the Loggers.
Derek Frenzel returned home from Austin, Texas and the USA Swimming Winter Championships to take on the 1650 free at the Husky Invitational. Frenzel finished 13th in the event with a 16:50.20 for the provisional qualifying time.
Jessica Jaynes earned her "B" time in the 200 breast. She swam a 2:24.30 in the preliminaries to make the "C" final and improved her time to 2:24.04 to take 21st in the event.
Norrish earned her "B" time in the prelims of the 200 fly as she finished with a time of 2:08.32. She placed 19th in the "C" finals with a 2:08.69.
Teale Kitson and Jere Jeremikj also made the "C" finals for the Loggers. Kitson placed 21st in the 200 back with a 1:55.13 while Jeremikj took 18th in the 200 fly with a 1:55.24. However, Jeremikj's best time came in prelims at 1:54.33.
The Loggers will step away from the competition season for the next month until they head to Simon Fraser on Jan. 12.
