The most outstanding swim of the day was probably the 50 freestyle win by Roland Schoeman of Phoenix Swim Club who won just a week after returning from winning bronze in the event for South Africa in the recently completed World Championships in Fukuoka, Japan.

Another note of interest in the Men's 50 freestyle concerned the 4th place finisher. Richard Hall, Phoenix Swim Club, a former Arizona high school record holder at 500 Yards and the younger brother of 8-time Olympic medalist Gary Hall, Jr., made his lifetime first national standard at :23.65.

Other athletes making a lifetime first national standard included winners Miranda and Devinney, plus Matt Jones,18, LOBO, 2:06.29, Men's 200 M backstroke and from an afternoon Time Trial, Michael Passey, 18, Desert Thunder, 55.96 in Men's 100 M Butterfly.
