Almost 450 masters swimmers congregated Apr 13-15 to compete in the 2012 SCY Colonies Zone Championship, hosted by Patriot Masters. Fifty-nine of the swimmers were from our LMSC, representing QMST (5), STON (2), SUNF (5), UNAT (6), VMST (37), and WAVA (4). QMST took home 5th place in the Small Team category, while VMST came in 3rd in the Large Team category.
Results have been posted, and our LMSC did well. Seven new individual LMSC records were set, five by Shirley Loftus-Charley and two by Randolph Wise. The VMST quartet of Shirley, Kitten Braaten, Bud Swiger and John McCorkle also set a new LMSC record in the mixed 400 free relay. Four of Shirley’s swims also set new Colonies Zone Championship meet records.
