Jan. 31, 2019 — Donna Edelbaum and Bill Jones participated in Maine’s first masters meet of the year. The 85-year-old Edelbaum continued to set records and likely will make national top-10 in all 18 short-course yards events, and certainly will be national champion in several. The short-course year is June 1 to May 31. Edelbaum went into the MDI meet with seven Maine records, six New England records and times in seven of the 18 recognized 25-yard course events that beat last year’s national championship times. It is still early in the swim year, but, as of now, Edelbaum is ranked first nationally in all seven.
