Seth pepper HOF
     At the time of his induction he was the greatest male butterfly/sprint freestyle swimmer in UA history and a 14-time All-American. He was an NCAA runner-up in the 100-yard butterfly in 1991 and 1992. In 1993 he won the NCAA title in that event in the third-fastest time ever swam. Just minutes earlier, he had swam the fastest 50-yard butterfly split in history as the UA  200-yard medley relay team won the NCAA crown, Arizona's first relay championship, and the Wildcats went on to finish fourth, UA's highest finish up to that time. In 1992 he finished third and fifth in the NCAA 50-yard and 100-yard freestyles, and in 1993 he placed third in the 100-yard freestyle and swam a leg of UA's second-place 400-yard freestyle relay. He finished third in the 100-meter butterfly at the 1992 U.S. Olympic Trials, and at the time of his induction he held the school record in both the 100-yard butterfly (46.51) and the 100-yard freestyle (43.44).
