The final USMS Top Ten listing for the 2010 short-course meters (SCM) season is now available. You can download or order a nicely-formatted version of the Top Ten list. Swimmers who made the list are also eligible for Top Ten patches. Our LMSC had 179 top ten performances (164 individual and 15 relays). All individual top ten performances from the past year (SCY10, SCM10, LCM10) have been tabulated.
The final pool All American and pool All-Star listings for 2010 have also come out. To attain All American status a swimmer must post the fasest time in an event/age group over the course of the year; this year there were 15 pool All American swimmers from our LMSC, joining our 13 long-distance All Americans. To order an All American Certificate and Patch, send a check for $5 made out to USMS to:

Pool All-Stars are those swimmers who have achieved the most top-ranked times in their age group during the year; they are essentially being recognized as the overall top swimmer in the age group. This year we have two All-Stars — Billy Gaines and Chris Stevenson. They join 2010 long-distance All-Stars Adam Barley and Shirley Loftus-Charley. Here is a list of all All-Star honors ever won by members of our LMSC. All Stars will receive a special certificate from the USMS.
Congratulations to everyone!
