Fairport Area Swim Team Masters had two members that scored enough to place 60th as a team: Greg Danner (one gold, two silvers, one bronze) and Kurt Schwarz (one silver). The RAMS club (ROCH) came in 99th with one scorer: Dana Gianniny with two golds and one bronze. Craig Travers (one bronze) swam Unattached for Niagara. There were numerous top ten finishes by Niagara swimmers and several Niagara records were broken! 

This meet was held at the famous IU Natatorium in Indianapolis, site of multiple Olympic Trials. They had just completed a $20m renovation of the facility, which resulted in a fantastic experience for all of the swimmers!
