Congratulations To Michael Barnosky

Link to video interview....

Air Force senior Michael Barnosky earned All-American honors at the 2016 NCAA Division I Men’s Swimming & Diving Championships at the McAuley Aquatic Center on the campus of Georgia Tech, Friday, March 25.  Barnosky finished third in the finals of the 100 breast stroke with a new Academy and WAC record time of 51.89. He was sixth entering the finals with a time of 52.13. Barnosky broke his own school and WAC record of 51.98 he set at the WAC Championships back in February.

He is Air Force’s first men’s swimming All-American since Chris Knaute earned honorable mention honors in 2006 in the 400 IM and 500 free.

"Whan an unbelievable night for Air Force swimming," head coach Rob Clayton said. "Michael earned All-American honors and set an Academy, conference and service academy record. He was seventh at the first wall, fifth at the second wall and, in the last 50, was the fastest swimmer in the pool, passing guys all the way to a third-place finish. Michael represented the Academy and Air Force swimming very well."

Michael swam for the Delta Barracuda Swim Team and later the Montrose High School Boys Team and the Montrose Marlins, graduating in 2012.

Note from Elaine:

1.  Warm-up lane assignments.  Aspen will warm-up early both days in order to provide lane space for the rest of the attendees.

2.  Meet programs for Sessions 1 and 3 - they are also posted on Meet Mobile.  Remember we will not be selling heat sheets for parents/spectators, so forward to your teams as you need to.  We will print them for coaches.

3.  Psych sheet for Session 2 - Remember this is a positive check-in session.  Check-in should occur by 2pm on Saturday.

4.  Sessions report.  We will have an open warmup for 15" after the conclusion of Session 1 for the distance events.

Please review with your swimmers how to do the over top starts.  We will have a second set of stopwatches to facilitate this (thank you Mavs!!) 

Also, please have your swimmers behind the blocks ready to swim as we won't be checking for them.  Please have your 8&unders go to the heating area (under the stairwell) to facilitate getting them to the blocks on time.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask!  travel safely!!  See you on the pool deck!
