On October 22, the UVRays hosted their 8th Annual Leaf Peepers short course meters meet in White Junction, Vermont. Diann Uustal from SwimRI was the meet’s outstanding swimmer, setting national records in the women’s 70-74 100m backstroke (1:24.93) and 100m IM (1:24.30). Diann’s 38.93 in the 50m backstroke was just 3 one-hundredths off the national record, but was good for a New England record, as was her 45.43 in the 50m breaststroke. Excerpted from the New England LMSC blog.
