Twelve current and former members of the Baylor Swim Club are competing this week at the United States Swimming national championships at Stanford University at Palo Alto, Calif. Beyond awarding national titles, the meet determines participants in the Pan American Games and the FINA World Junior Championships. Current Baylor Swim Club members taking part are Christian Carbone, Spencer Rowe, Ashley Vance, Kristen Vredeveld and University of Virginia swimmer Nathan Vredeveld. Rowe and Vance are getting ready for their freshman years at Georgia and Ohio State, respectively. Former club members representing their colleges in the nationals are Alison Lusk with Kansas, Greg Roop with Harvard, Brett Roberson with Georgia, Reese Shirey and Anna Rae Gwarjanski with Alabama and Sloane Pitman and Troy Tillman with Tennessee. "I am delighted to have this many of our kids competing at the nationals," said Baylor Swim Club coach Dan Flack, also the Baylor School coach. "It shows that the program we have built here has evolved into one of the best in the country, not just based on one or two kids. It will be great to see everyone."
