ST. PETERSBURG -- Florida Maverick Masters swimmer Florence Carr, 75, set three national records while winning all six of her events last month at a national meet.

Carr set records in the 50-yard freestyle (34.78 seconds), the 100 free (1:19.38) and 100 individual medley (1:37.03). She also won the 200 free, 50 butterfly and the 200 individual medley.

Carr was the only Maverick entry in the Short Course Yards Nationals, held in Santa Clara, Calif.

At its spring awards banquet last month, the Maverick Masters honored 40 of its swimmers for achieving a United States Masters Swimming top 10 place in one or more events during 2000. Twenty-two first-place winners were named All-America swimmers.

They included: Carr, Ann Champ, Edward Fulmer, Peggy Hughes, Paul Hutinger, Regan Kenner, Robert MacDonald, E. Don McCullough, Kay Schimpf, Frank Starr, Jean Troy and Gertrud Zint.

The relay All-America honorees were Brud Cleaveland, Stephen Everhart, Joseph Kurtzman, Dave Malbrough, Alan Maloney, Gladys Olsen, June Reynolds, Charles Schlegel, Frank Tillotson and Patricia Tullman.
