The seven-time All-America swimmer was unsurpassed in the sport in school history, becoming Oregon’s first standout ever to advance to the finals of the NCAA championships in the sport. Before he was through, the three-time team captain and most valuable performer had accumulated eight conference titles while leading the Ducks to a tie for 10th in the national collegiate meet in 1965. The former four-time Oregon high school state champion finished fourth in the 500-yard freestyle and 1650-yard freestyle, as well as eighth in the 400-yard freestyle relay. At one time, he held school records in as many as four events (200 individual medley, 400 individual medley, 400 freestyle and 1650 freestyle). He completed his competitive career in masters competition as the age group national champion and also held a pair of world records.
