Mustangs Score Big at 2008 Summer National Meets!

US Open and Junior Nationals

The Dallas Mustangs accomplished something this past summer that no other club in the United States could match finishing in the top ten at both the US Open Championships (7th) and Junior National Championships (4th). Both meets took place at the University of Minnesota on consecutive weeks in the beginning of August.

US Open

Many of our swimmers who went to the US Open were coming off competing at the Olympic Trials and did a great job of refocusing their efforts in order to be competitive at the Open. The following were the members of the 2008 Dallas Mustangs US Open Team: Allison Arnold, Candace Blackman, Jennifer Blackman, Grace Kittle, Meredith Monroe, Elzanne Werth, Nate Clark, Clint Hallum, Mitchell Johnson, Max Murphy, Matt Thompson and Caleb Veazey.
