Records & Top 10

SCM 2015 Season Wrap-Up

The final Top 10 lists for the 2015 short-course meters season (SCM15) have been published. The season ran from Jan 1, 2015 thru Dec 31, 2015.

Swimmers from our LMSC did well: 115 ranked individual swims and 11 ranked relays. There were 37 swimmers who had at least one Top 10 swim; Shirley Loftus-Charlie led the way with 11 ranked swims, followed by impressive performances (8 swims each) by Gregory Harris and Johnnie Detrick. There were three swimmers who had at least one top-ranked swim in an individual event: Johnnie was #1 in all eight of her swims, while Miriam Tuovila (4) and Sidney Glass (2) were also tops in at least one event. There were also five relay swims that were ranked #1 in the country, three by VMST in the Women’s 320+ age group and two by Club Tribe in the Mixed 120-159 age group. 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 SCM season: 44 new individual records were set, led by Gregory with seven records, while Johnnie was close behind with six new marks. Johnnie also set eight new Colony Zone records, while Miriam Tuovila also set three new records at the zone level. There were also 9 new relay records, set by VMST (5), Club Tribe (3) and RSMS (1), the new masters team at VCU.

The mythical national championship rankings are based on scoring the Top 10 swims by zone, LMSC or club. As an LMSC, Virginia was ranked 12th out of the 52 LMSCs, while VMST achieved an impressive ranking of #22 out of more than 250 scoring clubs nation-wide!

Congratulations to everyone on a great season!
