Not to mention Steve Kuster, the head coach of both the women's and men's swimming & diving programs at Williams.
His trio of swimmers is headed to Omaha, NE., to participate in the United States Olympic Trials. Only the top two finishers in each event qualify for the Summer Olympics in London next month, and Kuster calls it "the fastest and deepest meet in the world (more so than the Olympics)."
"Nobody is under any false assumptions that they have a chance of making the team, but I believe that they all know they can go to Omaha and compete with the best in the country, that they are among the best in the country," Kuster said of his trio. "They've done some very good work since the week after NCAA's and I know they are all geared up to be faster than they ever have been."
One of the most decorated swimmers in Williams history — and Div. III history — with 11 individual national titles, Todhunter will compete in the 100 butterfly event scheduled for Monday. Wilson, the national champion in the 1650 and the 500, will compete in the 400 IM Monday and the 200 IM on Wednesday.
Dyrkacz, the first male coached by Steve Kuster at Williams to qualify for the Trials, first met the U.S. Olympic Trials standard in July of 2011 when he was timed in 2:19.34, which was over a second under the 2:20.79 qualifying time in the 200-meter breaststroke. Dyrkacz secured his spot in the Olympic Trials while competing in the Connecticut Senior Championships. In March, he finished 2nd in the 200 at the NCAA Championships. He'll compete in the 200 breaststroke Thursday.
