BAM’s Lindley headed to U.S. Masters nationals

First off, I’m sorry I have posted in a while, but as the high school playoffs heat up around here my time becomes very limited. I’ll do my best to be more diligent.

That said, I wanted to take a moment to write about a local masters swimmer who will be heading to the United States Masters Spring National Championships, Friday-Sunday at Indianapolis’ Natatorium — which looks a LOT like KCAC in Federal Way.

Bainbridge Aquatic Masters swimmer Jane Lindley will be competing in her second national championships.

I’ll have a story on her, her training/diet and what she hopes to accomplish at nationals in Friday’s edition, but also wanted to post her schedule here.

Lindley, who has a swim blog of her own at, will swim in the 50-meter backstroke on Friday at 7:45 a.m. Pacific. She will compete in the 100 freestyle Saturday at 7:50 a.m. and the 50 butterfly at 8:50 a.m. and finish her individual events in the 50 free on Sunday at 11:10 a.m.

She is joined by 35 other Puget Sound masters swimmers and will swim in relays as well.

The website will be livestreaming the meet, so you can watch Lindley at the times listed above.
