The Top 10 lists have been posted for the LCM12 season, which ran from 9/1/11 to 8/31/12 so now is a good time to highlight some impressive long course swimming:
- There were 90 Top 10 swims (86 individual, 4 relay) from 25 swimmers. Top performers were Ida Hlavacek (9 rankings), Shirley Loftus-Charley (8) and Adam Barley (7).
- Ten swims were ranked #1 in the country! Most impressive was Susan Skiff with three top-ranked swims, but Shirley, Beth Schreiner and Elizabeth Shaw each had two #1 swims. The list of 2012 All-Americans to date (with SCM still remaining) from our LMSC is given here.
- Our performance in the LCM12 Mythical National Championship based on Top 10 times was impressive: the LMSC placed 21st out of 52 LMSCs, while VMST was 27th out of 200+ clubs.
- Quite a few new LMSC Records were set over the course of the season: 44 of them, to be exact. Shirley had seven of these while Susan was also impressive with six new records. Seven of these records were also new Colonies Zone Records.
Excellent job everyone! Next summer we will have the Colonies Zone LCM Championship in Richmond, Virginia: time to start training!
