END-WET: 2016 Guest Swimmer!

We are excited to announce our guest swimmer.  We had great nominations from you all and we’re proud that Jeff Utsch has accepted the invitation to join us in June to take on the Mighty Red River of the North.  In typical fashion, I will now list some of the unique things that we learned about Jeff:

  • 13-14 year old US National Record 800m Freestyle
  • US National Team Member
  • Selected for 1987 World University Games
  • Finalist World Championship Trials 1986
  • NCAA All-American
  • PAC-10 Champion
  • Top 10 World Ranking
  • Multiple Finalist US Senior Nationals
  • Olympic Trial Qualifier 1984, 1988, 1992
  • Captain University of Arizona Swim Team
  • Masters fastest time in the world (age group)
  • Masters World Records (400 and 800m Free Relays)
  • Masters Worlds Bronze Medal
  • Open Water Marathon Swimmer
  • Former Head Coach Ventana Canyon Swim Team
  • Tactical Swim Instructor to Naval Special Warfare (SEAL, SWCC, Support) 21 years
  • Training and Technique Clinics to swim teams, triathlete groups, etc. around country

I also have it on good authority that he is a nice guy and a family man.  Swimming accomplishments are fantastic, but being kind and good to your family also goes a long way.  We are excited to welcome Jeff to North Dakota and ask that the rest of you ENDracers welcome him as well.

Cheers!
