Auburn swimmers named to national team

AUBURN, Ala. – Six current and former Auburn swimmers have been named
to the USA Swimming 2010-11 National team, the USA Swimming office
announced Wednesday.

Swimmers were chosen based upon their times in Olympic events at the
2010 ConocoPhillips USA Swimming National Championships and the 2010
Mutual of Omaha Pan Pacific Championships. Swimmers with the top six
times in each event make the National Team.

"I'm very proud of this group of swimmers for all they've
accomplished this year," head coach Brett Hawke said. "They've put
in a lot of hard work and are deserving of this honor."

Current Tigers junior Micah Lawrence and senior Adam Klein each earned
a spot on the team for their efforts in the breaststroke events this
summer. Lawrence was selected in the 100 and 200 breaststrokes after she
won the "B" final in the 200 breast in an Auburn-record time of
2:25.19 at the 2010 Pan Pacs. She also finished second in the "B"
final of the 100 breast in 1:07.85, another school record, at the
international meet.

Klein earned a spot on the team with his performance in the 200 breast
events. He was selected after finishing fourth in the 200 breast
(2:13.05) at the national meet in early August.

Former swimmers Mark Gangloff, Tyler McGill and Eric Shanteau were also
selected to the national team. Gangloff's performance in the 100
breast earned his a spot after he finished third in the event at the
2010 Pan Pacs. Shanteau was also selected based on his performance in
the 100 breast and also in the 200 breast and the 200 IM. McGill's
second-place finish in the 100 fly (51.85) at the Pan Pacs placed him on
the national team.

Also selected to represent the U.S. was freshman Emily Bos, who earned
a spot on the U.S. National Youth Team in the 100 backstroke. Members of
this team are males and females 18 and under as of Sept. 1 and are
eligible to compete at the 2010 Speedo Short Course Junior National
Championships, Dec. 9-11, in Atlanta.
