92 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, July 28 - Aug. 3, 2000 Master swimmer Jarecki looks to defend national 1650 title By Rosanne Pack Kris Jarecki doesn&apos;t fit anyone's idea of an older athlete, but at 35, she is designated as a "master swimmer" and national champion at that. The recent transplant to the Cape Region holds a United States Master Swimmers na- tional championship in her age division for the 1650 free-style; her winning time was 19:19.38. Active in the master swimmers program for only her second year, Jarecki has trained on her own, using the facilities at the Sussex Family YMCA. She said she does some weight training, but primarily she swims: 4,000 to 6,000 yards a day, which takes her "an hour and a half or SO." Last year, her wins in Delaware-Maryland- Pennsylvania regional meets qualified her for the nationals where she earned medals for short course races as well as the championship medal for the mile swim. ( I I Continued from page 91 development for the fall shoulder season. Derrickson is excited about the prospect of developing the Cape Region as a golf destination, espe- cially in the spring and fall shoul- der seasons. "With The Rookery opening up, along with our course, Marsh Is- land, The Golf Park at Rehoboth and Old Landing, we can now do the hotel/golf packages and com- pete with Ocean City," he said. In the meantime, Derrickson is busy with a punchlist of small fix- es that any new course faces in its first season. He's happy about the repeat business the club is already seeing, and remains optimistic about his family's new invest- ment. "There's a lot more people who know about Us now compared to a few months ago. That will only increase over time."

"It would be nice to have company, and even a little push. The tougher the competition is, the better. I would like to have other swimmers to tk to and get advice from." Reaching the mid-30s hasn't qualified her for senior citizens' discounts, but, by amateur athletic standards, it pushes Jarecki up into the next age category. Howe,er, that doesn't mean competition is lighter. "The competition gets stiffer," she said. "From 30 to 39 is the toughest in masters' swimming. There are some phenomenal swim- mers; there were more than a dozen in the 30- to 35-age range who qualified for the Olympic trials." Jarecki can identify with those swimmers who have gotten stronger and faster as adults. She said, "I'm faster now than when I was swimming competitively in school."

SHAWNEE MIXED DOU- Pennsylvania native swam in meets from the time she was six into her college years. She al- so coached swimming at the college level be- fore she finished school and started a teaching career. She said she followed a dream when finding a job as a special education teacher in Seaford enabled her to move to the Cape Re- gion. After the move, Jarecki became active in the Amateur Athletics Union masters program in 1999 after 10 years away from competitive swimming. The program is open to those 19- years-of-age and up. After continuing her training all year, she will compete in the long course nationals again in August. Even though she has competi- tions in her near future, she is already looking ahead and even considering other forms of competition such as a triathlon. "I am setting goals for next year," she said. "It's costly, training, traveling, entering meets. But, I enjoy it and that helps me look past the financial part of it."
