Quick reminder that Scott Scofield is handling this year's high school state meet call-up list.  Look for that here.  Contact Scott here.

If you'd like to keep up with the hike, here are the links:




Time, energy, cell service, and internet connections will determine how often those are updated.

Planning to come out of retirement in the fall, so keep me in mind if y'all hear of something.

Good luck to all Texas swimmers and coaches in your championship meets!

Latest on Austin Aquatics & Sports Academy with Brendan Hansen is here.

Hansen loves to joke around, but I have a sneaky feeling that the hammer drops when you’ve been training with him a few weeks. It wasn’t until the hour-and-15-minute session was nearly over that Hansen doled out a nice lung-burning sprint set, reminding us that “sometimes I like to drive fast.” He’s coaching the masters program now, but says he’s looking for a world-class coach to take over that program while he focuses on the club program.

I much prefer the sharpest criticism
of a single intelligent man to the
thoughtless approval of the masses.
