31 years we have had the school record for the medley relay. I would like to propose that we do an alumni meet. It would be fitting that we start a Brian Warrender scholarship fund in his honor. If this meet happens, Bill I think you should swim Brians leg. I think we can get some media behind this. I have done corporate media for years. If we can get Doug Burns to coach us old guys that would be great. I have been swimming at 6,000 feet for years and running and doing weight training at 9,000 feet. Anybody in? you have my number.
