1941 Navy, and consequently would not be able to represent Washington in the con- ference finals. A few days later Captain George Athens, two years the Northern Division diving champion, was forced to leave the squad after being bothered all season by sinus trouble. George, a Cana- dian athlete, was easily the greatest divei ' ever to come to Washington and his loss weakened the squad immeasurably. Even with these losses, the squad com- pleted a successful season. Three out of four conference dual meets fell to the hluskies, as well as a non-conference con- test with the Victoria YMCA. The pre- season meet with the Canadian team was nearly disastrous, for though the squad managed a 37 to 25 victoiy, the issue was in doubt from beginning to end. ABOVE: Dick Becker and Lyie Ostlund UPPER: Dick Mai-gei-um and Jim McCluie ' .m ■■K H Idaho ' s Vandals were the first confer- ence victims of the Huskies, losing by a 48 to 27 count. In this meet the only rec- ords of the season were smashed by Washington. Chris Barr set a new pool mark for the 100-yard free-style event when he splashed the distance in 56 sec- onds flat, to beat the former record held by Dean McAdams by 1.4 seconds. The 200-yard breaststroke record fell to Jack Pomfret in 2:37.3. One week later the Huskies traveled south to Corvallis where they whipped the Oregon State Beavers, 41 to 34. Going into the last event, the scoi ' e was tied at 34-all, but a narrow victoi ' y in the final event gave the meet to Washington. First defeat of the season, the first In many years, came the next day when the Oregon Ducks swamped the Huskies, 56- 19. Oregon set a new conference fi ' ee- style record in this meet. Back home the following week, the

u yf Plagued all year by illness, ineligibility and selective service, Coach Jack Torney ' s varsity swimming team placed second to Oregon ' s powerful squad In the Northern Divi- sion championship this season, keeping Intact a ten-year record of never having finished lower than runner-up in the finals since swimming became a conference sport in 1932. It was evident early in the season that the Huskies would have only an outside chance of winning the conference crown for the fourth straight year. The opening day turnout was promising enough, but bad luck hampered the squad after the first few weeks. First man to drop was Ray Hyatt, a Yakima swimmer. He had won the Northern Division 50-yard free-style championship and was a member of the champion relay team in 1941. Two more men were lost to the squad in quick succession. First went breaststroker Bob McNeil, into an aviation training course. In mid-season, Paul Hurd, of Medina, was suddenly taken III. His loss to the squad left a gap in the breaststroke division, in which he had placed sixth In last year ' s finals. He had also been one of the members of the championship medley relay trio. Biggest blow of the season came a week later when Toi ' ney ' s number one swimmer, Pete Powlison, who held three national intercollegiate freshman records, withdrew from school for the quarter. Pete, who came to Washington from Hawaii, had been rated as one of the best swimmers In the nation. The same day that Powlison decided to drop his studies, It was learned that Jack Henderson, diver, had been called by the UPPER LEFT: Pete Lee, Frosh Captain, and Jack Pomfiet LOWER RIGHT: Jack Ranquet and Jim Johnston
