Stanford Men's Swimming Finds Success At U.S. National Championships
Aug. 11, 2003
College Park, Maryland - Hall of Fame Coach Skip Kenney, and one of the respected swim coaches in the United States, led his Stanford swimmers to a top-three finish in the National Championships.
Stanford Cardinal Men's Swimming completed the last day of competition Saturday night in the United States National Championship held in College Park, Maryland by finishing runner up to Circle C Swim Club in the 400 Medley Relay with team members Randall Bal, Gary Marshall, Dan Trupin, and Andrew Schnell.
The Cardinal were well represented each night of the five day meet with swimmers qualifying for finals in every event, in spite of the fact that three of their top swimmers were absent from the meet due to illness and prior commitments of competing in the Pan American games being held in the Dominican Republic.
On Thursday evening, Bal and Rouse swept the top two spots in the 100 Meter Backstroke with Randal capturing the gold with a time of 54.63 while swimming the first 80 meters under world record pace. Stanford junior, Gary Marshall, had another outstanding performance winning his first National Title in the 200 Meter Breaststroke on the first evening of competition. He also took fourth in the 100 breaststroke (1:02.59).
