Records & Top 10

SCY 2015 Season Wrap-Up

2014 Top 10 Patch

The final Top 10 lists for the 2015 short-course yards season (SCY15) have been published. The season ran from June 1, 2014 thru May 31, 2015.

Swimmers from our LMSC figured prominently in these lists, as usual: 88 ranked individual swims and 13 ranked relays. There were 27 swimmers who had at least one Top 10 swim; Shirley Loftus-Charley led the pack with 10 ranked swims, followed closely by Johnnie Detrick (9) and Gabrielle Mizerak (7). There were four swimmers who had at least one top-ranked swim in an individual event: Johnnie (2), Gabrielle, and the ever-impressive Calvin Barnes.There was also one relay that was ranked tops in the country, the mixed 25+ 400 medley relay by Kirk ClearClaire RussoDenise Letendre, and Greg Harris. Congratulations to these fine swimmers and everyone else who was on the list!

More details on these and other recent Top 10 achievements are given elsewhere on our website. Anyone making a Top 10 list can order Top 10 patches to commemorate the achievement. Nicely-formatted booklets are also available for download or order.

The LMSC record book was also re-written in the past season: 50 new SCY records were set, led by Calvin Barnes with seven records, while Kelly Parker Palace and Chris Stevenson each set six new standards. One of Kelly’s swims (the 200 free) was also a new zone record, as was the fine 50 fly swim by Gabrielle Mizerak.

After a hiatus, the mythical national championship rankings are back! These are based on scoring the Top 10 swims by zone, LMSC or club. As an LMSC, Virginia was ranked just out of the top 20 LMSCs at #22, while VMST achieved an impressive ranking of #25 out of almost 300 scoring clubs nation-wide!

Congratulations to everyone on a great season!
