Worked with Millie at Regent Learn to swim. She was a wonderful, kind woman. Also swam against her son Jeff Hart. Former student from Reservoir High School. The Preston club at that time was one of the top eight. There was an extensive league of teams who swam competitively through the winter. One of the reasons Australia had such depth and strength in its swimming. I think the demise of the strength of clubs and the more restrictive competitions attended by coaches reduced the strength of our swimming teams.
