Last Saturday the Patton Swim Team again exemplified why they are considered one of the best Age Group teams in the state of Michigan, if not the best. The A.A.U. Age Group Buick Vehicle Swim Meet held in Flint, Michigan, was won, hands down, by the Patton swimmers, under coach Harry E. Hauck.
For example, out of six relay events, Patton took four and in five girls freestyle events, Patton took three. Patton also had a triple winner in the Boys 15 and 16 events. John Savinski won the 50 yard Freestyle, and the 200 yard Freestyle, and the 100 yard Butterfly. Greg Penn, a double winner in the Boys 10 and under 50 yard Breaststroke and 100 yard Freestyle, also set two new state age-group records in these events.
Another state age-group record also fell to the boys 13 and 14 Medley Relay consisting of Doug Webster, John Hollinger, Carl Boyd, and Mark Manrique. Patton's individual winners were:
