Records & Top 10

SCY 2017 Season Wrap-Up

The final Top 10 lists for the 2017 short-course yards season (SCY17) have been published. The season ran from June 1, 2016 thru May 31, 2017.

Swimmers from our LMSC did well: 104 ranked individual swims and a whopping 39 ranked relays (the most since 2004)! There were 41 swimmers who had at least one Top 10 swim; Shirley Loftus-Charley led the way with 15 ranked swims; impressive performances were also turned in by Johnnie Detrick (10 swims) and Katie Grier (7 swim). There were four swimmers who had at least one top-ranked swim in an individual event, with Johnnie taking the top spot in an amazing nine (9) events! Other top-ranked swimmers from our LMSC were Shirley, Katie, and Beth Schreiner. There was also twelve relays that were the best in the country in their age groups: 7 by Club Tribe and 5 by VMST.

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: 50 new individual records were set, led by Shirley with 13 records. Shirley also set five new Colony Zone records, while Kristen HarrisMarina Falcone, Johnnie, Miriam Tuovila, and Geoffrey Meyer each set at least one new zone record this season. There were also 21 new LMSC relay records, set by Club Tribe (9),  VMST (10) and DDP (2).

The mythical national championship rankings are based on scoring the Top 10 swims by zone, LMSC or club. As an LMSC, Virginia was ranked 9th out of the 52 LMSCs. At the club level, VMST was ranked 20th and Club Tribe 28th out of more than 280 clubs that had swimmers in the Top 10. Wow!

Congratulations to everyone on a great season!
