Catfish in the Swim
Congratulations to Steve Mullins, a founding member of the Wild Catfish, on his outstanding performance at the FINA World Masters Championships held in August in Kazan, Russia. Steve took 2nd place in the 200 meter freestyle, 3rd in the 800 and 100 meters freestyle and 6th in the 200 meter backstroke.

Closer to home, Catfish Tom Holmberg and Richard Ruderman swam at the USMS Long Course Nationals in Ohio in August. Tom took 10th in the 100 meter breaststroke and 8th in the 200 meter breaststroke, while Richard, one of the newest members of the team, placed 11th in the 50 meter freestyle and 17th in the 100 meter freestyle. They also made up half of a men's 200 meter freestyle relay team that placed 7th. Congratulations to both on their fine swims.
