Beth Anne Botsford


Beth’s Botsford’s stat in competitive swimming might be described as fitful.  Beginning as so many do, in Summer League, she swam one year at age seven at Dulaney Swim Club, and gave it up for soccer!  But the water drew her back.  She returned to Dulaney and age nine and this time it stuck. Approached by Patty Stephens and Coach Tom Himes of the North Baltimore Aquatic Club, her father Kevin, balked at the idea of her swimming three nights a week but his fears were soon assuaged.  Swimming with her sister Stacie at North Baltimore, Beth’s inaugural season swimming year round saw her begin an assault on National Age Group Records, eight total in backstroke and butterfly for ages 9-10 and 11-12; five of which are still standing (as well as two 13-14 NAG’s)  As a 13 year old, Beth was chosen Rookie of the Meet at National Championships in Seattle in 1994.  A year later, Beth won the 200 backstroke and placed second in the 100.  That summer, she won the 200 back again and qualified for the Pan Pacific Championships.  In the Olympic year 1996, Beth led a formidable NBAC team to Trials, herself winning the 200 Back and placing second in the 100.  She joined NBAC teammate Whitney Metzler and coach Murray Stephens on the 1996 US Olympic Team.  Winning gold in a race she led from start to finish (100 Back) placed Beth on the Gold medal winning 4 x 100 Medley Relay.  1997 saw a continuation of Beth’s dominance in the backstroke races sweeping both distances at Spring Nationals.  She qualified for the Pan Pacific team in 1997. In 1998, she swam the 100 Back in the World Championships in Perth, Australia, finishing fifth.  Next was Canada for the Pan America Games where she won a silver in 200 Back and bronze in the 100.  1999 also saw Beth move from age group to collegiate swimming.  Beth’s rise at Arizona was as meteoric as her rise in age group swimming.  Her first year she earned four first team All America honors and won the 200 Back at NCAA’s setting a new American and US Open Record.  Her freshman year was capped being named  PAC-10 Women’s Swimming Newcomer of the Year.  Her remaining years at Arizona saw Beth earn four first team All America honors each year, while finishing in fifth place or higher each year at NCAA’s.  She was twice voted Team Captain at Arizona.  In 2003, Beth was named to the World University Games team which competed in Deagu, Korea.  She won silver in the 50 Back, placed fourth in 100 Back and was voted Team Captain for the US Women at WUG in Korea.  She currently lives in Tuscon, Arizona with two cats, one dog.  Beth is engaged to Kicker Vencill.
