Native Oklahoma Swimmer & BTW graduate featured in USMS Mag

Hey Oklahoma swimmers!

The Sept/Oct of the USMS 'Swimmer' magazine features Tyler Blessing demonstrating the proper backstroke. Tyler grew up in Tulsa and swam at B.T. Washington High School. Tyler's name is still listed on the BTW record board. He also swam with Don Nelson's kids on their USS team.

Tyler's parents still live in Tulsa. His mother called Don saying she would like to get several copies of the magazine. Please contact me if you would like to donate your issue of 'Swimmer' magazine to Mrs. Blessing. If you plan to go the Edmond meet this coming Sunday or to the Senior Games meet at BTW next week (October 13), Don and I will be at both those events.
