Swimming

The Naval Academy Junior Swim Club's national relay team finished fourth in the 400-meter short-course freestyle relay event at the 1993 U.S. Open Swimming Championships this month at the University of Michigan.

Seeded seventh heading into the event, Navy established a school record and recorded a Senior Nationals cut time of 3 minutes, 53.37 seconds with a 57.72-second leadoff split from Maggie Phillips and splits of 59.37, 59.32 and 56.96 from Natalie Phillips, Amy Betz and Joan Chidester, respectively.

Navy was the only club team that placed, finishing ahead of hometown University of Michigan's A team and following champion Southern Methodist, runner-up Southern Cal and third-place University of Kansas.

In earlier competition, the Navy relay team finished 10th in the 800 freestyle (8:32.54), with Chidester recording a 2:04.89 unofficial senior cut time for the final leg. It also placed 19th in the 400 medley with a time of 4:29.18.

Individually, Navy's Maggie Phillips, a senior at Old Mill and a resident of Millersville, made a Senior Nationals cut in the 50 freestyle with a time of 26.52, qualifying her to swim that event at next spring's Senior Nationals in Washington state. She swam the 100 freestyle in a Junior Nationals cut time of 57.72.

Chidester, a Crofton resident and a senior at Severn School, where she holds five state swimming records, made the finals in the 200 freestyle with a preliminary Junior Nationals time of 2:04.35 and a final time of 2:06.09. She also swam the 200 IM (2:23.89), 100 free (57.95), 400 IM (5:01.18) and the 400 free (4:22.18).

Betz of Annapolis, a senior at Key School and a former Junior Nationals finalist, swam the 200 butterfly in a Junior Nationals cut time of 2:21.56, the 100 fly in 1:04.49, the 200 IM in 2:26.02 and the 400 IM in 5:08.68.

The youngest member of the relay team, Natalie Phillips of Millersville, is a sophomore at Old Mill. At 13, she was the youngest member of the Navy club to make Junior Nationals and is ranked eighth and ninth, respectively, for the 100 and 200 fly in the 1992-93 Age Group Short Course Top 16 national rankings.

Navy coach Carol Chidester, a world-record holder in Masters swimming for the 200 backstroke, has coached the Navy Junior Nationals team for the past seven years, overseeing its success at two Senior Nationals and U.S. Open championships. She also has guided the team to one Olympic trial qualifying time and Junior Nationals championship titles in four events.

Chidester has twice coached at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colo., for the U.S. Select Swimming Camps.

All members of the Navy relay team, which is also ranked in the age group Top 16 at sixth for the 200 free relay, have been selected on a national basis to attend these elite training camps.

Coach Chidester said she was pleased with Navy's 45-point, 13th-place overall finish out of the 50 club teams competing, in addition to the numerous college and international teams that participated.

"Our team competed alongside of Olympians at a level of competition that saw several American records being broken," Chidester said.

Figure skating

Cortney Riffee of Millersville recently received a Competitive Skating Assistance Program Award by the United States Figure Skating Association.

The CSAP Award will provide financial assistance to help cover expenses incurred for education and development of figure skating skills. The prestigious awards are given to promising skaters based on financial need, competitive potential, sound character and demonstrated motivation.

Riffee, who trains in Newark, Del., and represents the University of Delaware, has an impressive competitive record, having placed fourth at the United States National Championships last February.
