Family gets back into pool, acquits itself well at Journal Star meet - Peoria, IL - pjstar.com: "Being out of practice did not equate to slow times for some participants in this year’s Journal Star Swim Meet at Central Park Pool.We were there!
Kyle Boerke swam his first race in eight years Sunday, the Trophy Shootout, against about 20 competitors. Yet he was able to win three events, including the mixed 200-yard medley, and fell just two seconds short of Patrick Inness in the men’s 100 butterfly.
Boerke was a member of the Peoria Area Water Wizards youth program and swam for Bradley University until its team was disbanded in 2002. Kyle graduated from BU in 2003 with a degree in psychology.
He then went to Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in Baltimore for his residency. Boerke now works as a clinical psychologist for OSF Saint Francis Medical Center.
It was this job that brought Boerke back to the swim meet. Boerke and his wife, Abby, moved back to the area earlier this month."
