No, she was not on the swim team. She was either a national diving or swimming champion that came through on a publicity tour or part of the opening of the pool I'll dig through my notes to see if I have a name.

Sure. I just sent them to you.

For the above picture, in the March 22, 1945 Skeeter (MTBSTC newsletter) the caption reads "Clinton Lathrop and Arthur Campbell holding trophies they won in the First Annual Swimming Carnival, here at the PT Pool. Campbell - Hipoint, Lathrop - 2nd Hipoint.
