LMSC members have recently participated in two nearby masters meets, and the results have been uploaded to our website.
- The 22nd Annual Albatross Open, hosted by the Montgomery Ancient Mariners masters team, was held in Bethesda MD on Mar 15. This is a well attended SCM meet, with 225 swimmers this year. With a handful of swimmers, VMST took third in the overall combined team scores. There were 15 new LMSC records set at the meet, including three each by Adam Barley and Greg Harris.
- The RCA Dive Into Spring meet (SCY) was held Mar 23 in Lexington, VA. This is the fourth year that the meet has been held and it seems to grow a little more: this year there were 53 swimmers, all but one of them from our LMSC. There were nine new records set at this meet, five by Lucille Griffin and four by Marcia Barry.
A handful of LMSC members (I spotted four names) travelled to North Carolina and competed in the Dixie Zone Championship in Cary on Mar 29-30. Warner Brundage added another couple of LMSC records to his collection, but the swim of the meet had to belong to 90-year-old Calvin Barnes who competed in the 1000 free, setting LMSC records in the 100, 200 and 500 free along the way to his new record in the 1000. Amazing!
From one end of the age spectrum to the other…in addition to these great accomplishments, two of our youngest members recently set a few LMSC records while participating in USA-S meets. Rachel Nelson set four new marks while competing at the Virginia Senior Championship meet in Richmond, while Nathan Destree set a new record at the West Virginia LSC version of the same meet.
Congratulations to ALL swimmers who competed in March: well done!
