Meet director Craig Charley has written a blurb about the meet:
RCA’s Dive Into Spring Meet was exciting from start to finish. There were unbelievably four National Relay Records set in the Women 65+ age group by VMST! The members of all four record-setting relays were Kathy Umbdenstock, Barbara Boslego, Marcia Barry and Shirley Loftus-Charley. In the first event of the meet, the 400 Freestyle relay national record fell from 5:14.70 to 4:44.37 that was 30.33 seconds drop! The 400 Yard Medley Relay record of 5:54.65 was crushed with a time of 5:32.95 (21.70 seconds). The 200 yard free relay was a nail biter, the record of 2:09.98 was broken by just .96 seconds. Finally the last event of the day, the 800 Free relay fell from 11:37.37 to 10.28.12 (1 minute 9.25 seconds drop). Shirley also set two new individual LMSC records, in the 500 free and the 50 fly.
In addition, there were an astonishing 20 Meet records set! They were set by Shirley in the 500 Free, 100 Free, 50 Breast, 50 Fly & 50 Free. Melinda Sulewski, 100 Back, 50 Back, Sascha Goluboff 100 back, Kate Ericsson 100 back, Kathy Umbdenstock, 100 back, Greg Harris 100 back, 400 IM, 200 IM, Roland Walters 100 back, Leanne Shank 100 IM, Suzi Burns 100 IM, 200 Breast, 100 Breast, Ted Turner 100 IM & Kurt Sprenger 200 Free!
