2020 US Open: Dan Krueger Grabs San Antonio Victory in 100 Free; Carson Foster Adds Third Win

As one of the University of Texas’ go-to performers, Daniel Krueger has put up some impressive swims in the short-course pool over the past few months. On Saturday, he claimed victory in the 100-meter freestyle at the San Antonio locale of the US Open. Krueger led a 1-2-3 finish of either current or former Longhorns, winning the event in 50.17.

As long as the pandemic doesn’t cancel the 2021 NCAA Championships, as was the case last spring, Krueger is expected to lead Texas in pursuit of another team title. He was followed in San Antonio by Texas product Jeff Newkirk (50.40) and current teammate Drew Kibler (50.54). The Longhorns are currently in heavy training under coach Eddie Reese.
