The Power of Team Tennessee Helps Senior Butterflier Heather Kiger Break Barrier

By Christian Hanselmann, Swimming World contributor

I won’t disagree with someone who says that swimming is an individual sport. But, at the Georgia Bulldog Invitational this weekend, the last-chance meet hosted by Georgia, I saw the power of Team. I saw the reason we swim.

Heather Kiger is a senior at the University of Tennessee. Her best 100 fly time in high school was a 56. After going a 54 her sophomore year, she had her sights set on breaking 54. Last year, she went a 54.12. Last week at SECs, she went a 54.35. She came to the Bulldog Invitational with one last chance (pun fully intended) to achieve her goal.

In the morning, she went a 54.68. At night, she went a 54.08. .08 is a nearly indiscernible difference, but it’s a difference. It’s still a 54, not a 53. Naturally, she decided to do a time trial.
