ST. PETERSBURG -- The St. Petersburg-based Florida Mavericks entered just seven swimmers in the Long Course Meters National Championships last month, but it was enough to place second of 135 teams in the small-team division.

Competing in the 75- to 79-year-old age group, Florence Carr set national records in the 50 freestyle (38.57 seconds) and 100 free (1:32.33). Carr also took firsts in the 200 free, 50 butterfly and 50 breaststroke, and second in the 100 fly.

Other Mavericks who scored were:

Joseph Kurtzman (75-79), first in the 50, 100 and 200 fly and 50 breast, and second in the 100 breast.

Gertrud Zint (80-84), first in the 50 fly and 200 individual medley, second in the 50, 100 and 200 breast, and third in the 50 backstroke.

Paul Hutinger (75-79), first in the 100 breast, second in the 50 back, 50 breast and 50 free, and third in the 100 and 200 back.

Elmer Luke (75-79), second in the 1,500 free, third in the 400 free, fourth in the 200 free and 200 and 400 individual medleys, and sixth in the 200 breast and 200 back.

Alan Maloney (70-74), third in the 100 fly, fifth in the 50 breast, sixth in the 200 breast and 50 fly, and seventh in the 100 breast and 200 individual medley.

Margie Hutinger (60-64), seventh in the 200 back, ninth in the 50 back and 10th in the 100 back.

The four-man men's team placed third in its division.
