Brainerd High School graduate Jared Anderson placed 15th in the 100 breaststroke for the University of Minnesota men's swimming and diving team in the Big Ten Championships last weekend at Ohio State.
Anderson had a lifetime best time in the prelims of 54.99. He made the Gophers' traveling team by the end of the season and was named to the Big Ten team earlier this winter.
His time in the 100 breaststroke was good enough to make the B cuts for the NCAA meet. An A cut time automatically gets an athlete invited to the NCAAs. The committee then goes down the list of B cut times to fill the meet out.
