Results from the 2013 Short Course Colonies Zone Championship have been uploaded! Links to the results from two other April meets — the NC LMSC Championship and The Backup Plan distance meet — have also been posted on our web site.
There were 555 swimmers at the zones meet, which was held Apr 19-21 at George Mason University. The meet was well organized by all accounts; 56 members of our LMSC were entered. They accounted for some fast swimming! VMST entered 30 swimmers and won 2nd place in the “large club” category, behind local Fairfax County Masters and its 159 swimmers.
There were 14 new LMSC records set at the meet, listed below. As you can see, Harry Sober, Ken Novell and Ed Gaulrapp rewrote the men’s 70-74 record book with 10 new records between them (five for Ed alone). Wow! Laura Walker had a good meet too, not only did she set three new LMSC marks but two of her swims were good for new SCY Zone Championship records. Although her time wasn’t an LMSC record, Lesley Francis also set a new Zone Championship record in the 500 free for the 80-84 age group in an impressive swim.
Congratulations to all these swimmers, and cheer for any of your teammates going to Nationals!
