Wildcat swimmer named to National Team roster

Along with Arizona sophomore women’s swimmer Alyssa Anderson, UA senior men’s swimmers Jack Brown and Marcus Titus have been named to the United States national squad for 2009-10.

They will be joined on the 110-member team by former Wildcat freestylers Lacey Nymeyer and Lara Jackson, according to the athletic department.

Brown clocked a 1:57.77 in the 200-meter individual medley during the World Championship Trials this summer. In the same meet, Titus touched the wall in one minute flat.

Anderson made the U.S. world team roster over the summer, traveling to Rome as a member of the 800m freestyle relay team.

Qualifying for the National Team required the swimmers to place in the top six positions in their events over the course of four summer meets: the USA Swimming National Championships, the U.S. Open, the World University Games and the World Championships in Rome.
