    Postal Championship Results - 2019 1-hour ePostal Nationals

Only twelve PSM swimmers participated in the 42ndAnnual 1-Hour ePostal swim this year. A search for other PNA swimmers came up “empty”. 

The team was able to field two relays, which garnered 1stand 2ndplace finishes. The 35+ women’s relay took gold with a combined effort of 13,050 yards. Participants were Katy Smith, Michelle McRae, and Tammy Koppelberger. The 35+ mixed relay took silver with a combined effort of 18,135 yards. Michelle and Tammy combined with Kevin Crane and Chad Hagadorn to form this relay. Two other relays finished 6thand 8th. 

Individually, six of the twelve PSM swimmers placed in the top 10 of their age groups. Tammy Koppelberger (47) and Sally Dillon (73) placed 3rd, Betsy Kassen(67) and Chad Hagedorn (47) placed 9th, and Katy Smith *38) and Michelle McRae (44) finished 10th.

Next up for National postal swims are the 5K & 10K National Championships. The “window” to swim is from mid-May until mid-September and they must be swum in a 50-meter pool. PNA will be reserving lanes at KCAC on Saturday, July 6 immediately following the scheduled LCM meet. 5 K swimmers can be accommodated in the rental time; and it will be a first-come, first-served signup. Entries are limited due to rules about circle-swimming. Look for more information on the LCM meet page.
