Lots of champions and one new record

Milky Way Masters won their fourth consecutive and 13th Iowa state title since the first meet was contested in 1982.  The meet was held at Coe College Natatorium on April 6.

Milky Way Masters scored almost three times as many points, 1164, as the second place team, Quad City Masters, 413.  Also among the 10 top scoring teams were Hawkeye Masters - third, Mason City Masters - fourth, Iowa City Masters - fifth, Blackhawk YMCA - sixth, Unattached-Iowa, - seventh, Central Iowa Masters - eighth, Panther Masters - ninth, and Southwest Iowa Masters - 10th.

Milky Way had 34 individual state champions, 13 relay champions, and one state record by Tom Belin, 45-49, in the 200 backstroke.  Congratulations to all the Masters swimmers in Iowa!
