SAN ANTONIO, Texas – Three former California swimmers kicked off the 2021 calendar year by competing in the TYR Pro Swim Series event at the North East ISD Blossom Athletic Complex in San Antonio on Jan. 14-17.
Cal alumni and current U.S. National Team members Ryan Murphy, Andrew Seliskar and Tom Shields swam in eight total events. Full results from the four-day event can be viewed here.
