PASA swimmers bring home medals from USA Futures meet


PASA's Cyrus Morrison, who will be attending California in the fall, highlighted action on the final day of the USA Futures Championships in Santa Clara on Sunday, winning the men's 100-meter free in 51.67.

Morrison was in third at the halfway mark and then put together a 26.62 split over the final 50 meters to pull past the field.

He was one of three PASA swimmers to finish among the top 20 in the event. Bellarmine senior Nathan Yates placed fifth in 52.27 and Corbin Fawls was 20th in 53.59.

Serra High's Brooks Taner (54.03), Sacred Heart Prep's Luke Rohlen (55.31) and Serra's Alec Cullen (56.76) also participated in the event.

Yates, Cullen, Taner and Morrison teamed up to help PASA finish seventh in the 400-meter medley relay in 3:57.56. Yates added a ninth place finish in the 200 IM.

Ted Makler recorded a 14th-place finish in the 200 back in 2:11.84 and followed that with an 18th-place showing in the 200 IM in 2:11.68.

On the women's side, Gunn's Sarah Snyder and Grace Tramack each completed a successful meet with a top 10 finish.

Snyder went 57.81 to place third in the 100-meter free, just over a half-second out of first. Tramack placed 10th in the 1,500 free in 17:44.25.

Ashley Stahmer (59.67), Claire Lin (1:00.85) and Allison Asborno (1:01.51) also raced in the 100.
