9th Annual Ross Yancher Memorial ePostal Brute Squad
This traditional DAM event has a new identity in recognition of it's founder, Ross Yancher. Ross, the Davis Aquatic Masters head coach from 1981 to 1988, passed away late last year and in his memory, the event was renamed.
For nearly a decade, DAM has been challenging USMS members to be a brute ... what's a brute? Well, the Brute Squad event takes the three most difficult events in swimming: the 200 butterfly, the 400 IM, and the 1650 freestyle, and combines them into a single event! Start the clock. Swim a 200 fly. Then a 400 IM. Follow that up with a 1650 free. Stop the clock. Ready? Sounds crazy, doesn't it? Not, really. Over the past eight years, nearly 1,000 USMS members have competed in the event and from those results a TOP TEN TIMES list was compiled.
