SWIFT carried 6 swimmers to the Auburn Masters Swimming Invitational on February 11-12th, 2012 and won 13 races along 6 second place finishes. The meet took place at the Auburn University swim complex that is to host the women’s NCAA Championships next month. The meet had some 175 swimmers compete and the events were swum with both men and women of all ages competing in the same event. The format made for some good racing.  All races were done in a 25 yard course.

Percy Knowles swam in the 80 -84 age group and finished with a second in the 50 breast in 51.20, a second in the 100 breast in 1:53.22, and a third in the 100 free in 1:41.34.  Andy Knowles swam in the 55-59 age group and came away with a first in the 50 breast in 33.55, a first in the 100 breast in 1:13.95, a second in the 100 IM in 1:06.49, and a second in the 50 back in 32.37.
