Ross Yancher Memorial Brute Squad and Inaugural Brute Squad Lite ePostal Swim
October 1-November 30

Time again to challenge yourself with the 11th Annual Brute Squad e-Postal, sponsored by Davis Aquatic Masters! The event consists of a timed, continuous 200 butterfly, followed by a 400 IM, and finishing up with a 1650 freestyle. For those to whom these distances seem intimidating, DAM created a smaller event this year called the Brute Squad Lite. This event features timed, continuous distances of 100 fly, 200 IM and a 500 free.  Completing either of these events is still something to brag about! Information.

Reflections on the Sacramento Masters Sprint Pentathlon

Teamwork, treasure and trust exemplify the SCM Sprint Pentathlon in Folsom. No one could deny the excellent teamwork between Sacramento Masters and Sierra Marlin Masters as they joined forces to host this meet. From the moment you parked your car at the Folsom Aquatic Center and walked towards the pool, there was a sense that something very special was about to take place. Full Article
