Summer Nationals Recap

The Virginia Masters Swim Team (VMST) was the only club from the Virginia LMSC to make the trip to Minneapolis in August to compete in the 2017 USMS Summer Nationals at the University of Minnesota. However, with only seven swimmers, VMST had an impressive showing, finishing in 14th place among 170 local clubs at the meet. The results have been posted.

VMST was led by Beth Schreiner, who won three of her five individual events in the 75-79 age group, and placing 2nd in the other two. In the process, she broke the LMSC long-course meters record in the 100 backstroke with a time of 1:50.11. Sandy Galletly (75-79) traveled to Minnesota from his home in Scotland to claim victory in the 200-meter backstroke. Sandy also took 2nd in the 1500 Freestyle, and posted two 4th place finishes in his other individual events. Sandy set three new LMSC records: 400 free (7:08.43), 1500 free (28:14.90), and the 200 breast (4:24.84).

Greg Harris scored some important points for VMST by posting six top-10 finishes in the 50-54 age group, placing 3rd in three events—the 100 and 200 breaststrokes and the 200 individual medley. He also lowered his LMSC record in the 100-meter breaststroke, swimming an amazing 1:12.45. Competing in the same age group, Kirk Clear also took a 3rd place in the 50-meter backstroke, as well as a 7th place finish in the 100 back.

Barbara Boslego (65-69) also garner a lot of points for VMST, finishing in the top-10 in all five of her events, placing as high as 4th in the 50 breast. Jenny Kellinger (55-59) also placed in the top-10 in all four of her events, finishing 3rd in the 50-meter freestyle. Ray Keating (55-59) competed in four individual events and one relay for VMST. There are lots of great photos of Virginia swimmers to look at.
