Tarwater barely short of Olympics


Davis Tarwater was one former west side high school swimmers who came painfully close to qualifying for the 2004 Olympic Games later this summer in Athens, Greece.

Tarwater, a former Webb School star (Class of 2002) and Big Ten Conference record-holder in the 200-meter butterfly, took fourth in the 200 fly but needed to finish second to qualify for Athens. He finished less than a half-second behind both the second and third-place finishers, and his time of 1:57.82 was a personal record.

Recently graduated FHS star swimmer Anna Miller finished 31st in the 400 freestyle preliminaries (4:19.97), 49th in the 200 freestyle prelims (2:05.38) last week, and 32nd in the 800 freestyle prelims Monday.

Another former west side high school star swimmer, Webb Spartan graduate Reid Owen, attempted to earn a trip to Athens by qualifying in the 1,500 freestyle Tuesday (after press deadline).
