Brute Squad Meet Report

This was the 25th annual Brute Squad Meet. It was given the secondary name of Rose Steward Brute Meet in recognition of one of Arizona Masters original members, and the original Brute Meet director who passed away in 2002.

This meet was another success. We had 39 swimmers entered in the meet, and seven swimmers swam the Brute Events. The brute events are the hardest events in long course swimming. They are the 200 meter butterfly, 400meter individual medley and the 1500 meter freestyle. Winning the brute award this year were, Jim Stites, Jeff Ashbeck, Chris Fischer, Dana Hunter, Gordon Gillin, Michelle Worden and Anna Ray DeLozier. Much missed this year was Edie Gruender, who couldn’t make it because of some medical problems. Edie has never missed a Brute Meet; as far back as I can remember.

We had a full host of certified officials, and not one DQ in the meet.
