Meet Results

Fun in Maryland: Summer Nationals


Sixty-three swimmers from our LMSC participated in the Long Course National Championship meet that was held Aug 13-17 in College Park, MD. Our swimmers did great! Virginia Masters Swim Team (VMST), competing with 40 swimmers, finished second overall in combined scoring, while Peluso Open Water (POWM) with only seven swimmers — all women — managed to snag eighth in the women’s scoring.

There were records aplenty, too. Most impressively were two VMST relays consisting of Marcia Barry, Johnnie Detrick, Terry Sue Gault and Beth Schreiner who set a new World Record in the 200 Free Relay and a new National Record in the 200 Medley Relay in the Women’s 280-319 age group. Awesome job, ladies!

There were plenty of LMSC records too, of course: 42 of them, to be exact (39 individual and 3 relay records). Denise Letendre and Chris Stevenson led the way with six records apiece, followed closely by Greg Harris and his five new standards. The complete list of records is given below.

We had 15 national champions at the meet, winners of one or more events:

  • Marcia Barry: 1500 Free, 200 free relay, 200 medley relay
  • Barbara Boslego: 200 breast
  • Johnnie Detrick: 50 free, 100 free, 200 free, 50 breast, 200 free relay, 200 medley relay
