Brute Squad 2016
Are you a brute? If not, become one by participating in DAM's Brute Squad Postal Championship. DAM has been challenging members for many years to be a brute ... what's a brute? Well, the Brute Squad event takes the three most difficult events in swimming: the 200 butterfly, the 400 IM, and the 1650 freestyle, and combines them into a single event!
The 8th Annual DAM Brute Squad event is in the books. The official results are posted and the commemorative shirts have been mailed. (DAM swimmers may pickup their shirts at the Civic office.) 156 swimmers competed this year and two new event records were set. Eight DAM swimmers took first place in their age groups. They are Vivian Crow (18-24), Jenny Mohn (25-29), Susan Munn (75-79), Alex May (18-24), Tim Cutler (40-44), Andy McPherson (65-69), Robert Norris (75-79) and Mark Braly (80-84). In addition, seven new team records were set this year. They were from Crow, Mohn, McPherson, Norris, Braly and Matt Roper (35-39), and Ted Krovetz (50-54).
