ON THE COVER

Eddie Reese first took over the swimming program at the University of Texas Austin in 1978.  It only took three years before his men’s team captured their first NCAA Division I team championship.  With two more team titles in the 1980s, an additional three in the ’90s, another four between 2000 and 2010 and the Longhorns’ 11th championship at Iowa City in March, Reese tied Ohio State’s Coach Mike Peppe for the most men’s NCAA Division I team titles.  -Photo by Peter Bick(See story, page 28, plus related feature, page 58).

By Rod Havriluk

A common technique misconception is that a butterflyer should not change the angle at the neck to breathe.
