Kuper clips state times in St. Louis meet

Sunday, December 22, 2002

Jameson Kuper picked up two state qualifying times as Notre Dame's boys' swimming team placed third in a four-team meet Saturday in St. Louis.

Kuper's times of 2:10.69 in the 200 individual medley and 1:05.08 in the 100 breast stroke each were good for second place each in the meet and enough to qualify for the state meet.

The Bulldogs' other top finishes were third place in the 200 medley relay and fourth place in the 200 freestyle relay. Jordan Kuper, Jameson Kuper, John Fisher and Mark Lester made up both teams.

Fisher also had a strong race in the 100 butterfly. Fisher's time of 58:61 came up less than three-tenths of a second short of a state qualifying time, but good enough for fifth place in the meet.
