There is another Northfield connection at the NCAA meet

Hi Adam, Besides the St. Olaf and Carleton swimmers at Nationals my husband Brad is one of the officials.  He has worked at division 3 NCAA meets for the past 3 years.  He has been a swim official for 25 years, he does MSHL and MIAC meets from September to March.

And for the men's meet he is joined by Bob Johnson from St. Cloud who is the father of Carleton assistant coach and NHS teacher Craig Johnson.  See, there are Northfield connections EVERYWHERE- kinda spooky!
