Meet Results

Championship Swimming

Spring Nationals

Click for more photos from both meets

April may bring spring showers, but it also brought some very fast swimming from our LMSC! There were 141 members who participated in either the Colonies Zone Championship meet in Fairfax, VA (Apr 8-10) or in the USMS National Championship in Greensboro, NC (Apr 28-May 1). Results and photos for both events have been posted to our website.

The participation level was inspiring: those 141 individuals represented 14 different clubs across both states in our LMSC. While VMST led the way with 61 swimmer and Club Tribe featured a very fast group of 31 swimmers across both meets, kudos also to Freedom Aquatic Club, Fredricksburg American Family Fitness and Quest Masters for all fielding five or more swimmers at these meets. Also impressive was the fact that there were 32 motivated swimmers who competed in both meets!

But it wasn’t just about participation: many LMSC records fell during the month of April! At zones, 19 individual records and five relay records were broken, led by Greg Harris and Beth Schreiner with six and three records each, respectively. Impressively, four of the five relay records were broken by Club Tribe; one of these, the 18+ Women’s 400 Free Relay by Courtney Hurtubise, Katie Grier, Gabrielle Mizerak, and Sara Shaner, was a new national record! In terms of team scores, Virginia Masters came in 5th and Club Tribe came in 6th in the combined scores. Please click here for the complete results and splits.

That was simply the prelude for the all-out assault on the record book that took place in Greensboro at nationals, where a whopping 68 new LMSC records were set (54 individual, 14 relay). Five swimmers — Harris, Mizerak, Grier, Sidney GlassMarcia Barry, and Douglas Slater — each set four records apiece, while Club Tribe set nine of the relay records. Three of the new records were also national records: Johnnie Detrick continues to get better with age, lowering her own national record in the 80-84 100 IM by 1.5 seconds, while the young speedsters at Club Tribe added to their national records in the 18+ age group in the Women’s 200 free relay (with the same quartet of Mizerak, Shaner, Hurtubise, and Grier as in the 400 free record they set at zones) and in the Mixed 400 free relay (with Kevin GallagherKyle Loughran, Grier and Mizerak). Impressively, our LMSC had two teams finish in the top 10 local clubs, Club Tribe coming in at 7th and Virginia Masters at 8th.

The complete list of new LMSC records that had been rewritten after all the dust settled is given in the table below, which can be searched; note that some of the records set at the zone meet were later broken at nationals. Congratulations to all the people who went to either (or both!) of these meets.
