Special to the Town Crier
The Ashland University swim team competed in the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference meet in Michigan in early February. Senior Brian Worhatch, a 2007 Boardman graduate swam the butterfly leg  of the 200 medley relay that placed first with a time of 1:29.69 which set a GLIAC meet record, a pool record and a team record. That time also qualified Worhatch to compete in the NCAA Division II National Competition in San Antonio, Texas, in early March. That broke the team's record of 1:31.58 that was just set at their meet at Eastern Michigan in December. The time of 1:29.69 earned the Ashland relay a number one ranking in the country. 

Worhatch also competed in the 200 free relay, which placed second with a time of 1:22.90. He also competed in the 50 free, 100 fly and 200 fly. Worhatch swam a personal best in the 100 fly with a time of 49.88, which earned him a fourth place finish.

Worhatch, a three-time All American is one of 19 swimmers that Ashland has qualified for the national championships, setting is a school record. Worhatch will be graduating with a degree in sports management with a minor in coaching.
