- Our LMSC was represented well, with 45 swimmers, from VMST (33), Quest (7), South Hampton (2), Warrenton (2) and UNAT (2). Excellent job, everyone; extra kudos to Claire Russo and Billy Gaines for each swimming five lifetime best times.
- There were 28 new LMSC records set at the meet. Kate Hibbard and Lisa Bennett were perfect, setting new LMSC records in all their individual events.
- There were 15 newly-crowned national champions in individual and relay events. Congratulations especially to the incomparable Mariana Berkley for winning three individual events.
- Six national records were bettered by Virginia swimmers, including a new national record in the 65+ Women 200 free relay by the VMST team of Betsy Durrant, Ida Hlavacek, Beth Schreiner and Barbara Zaremski.
