Records & Top 10

SCM 2017 Season Wrap-Up

The final Top 10 lists for the 2017 short-course meters season (SCM17) have been published. The season ran from Jan 1, 2017 thru Dec 31, 2017.

Swimmers from our LMSC did well: 93 ranked individual swims and 11 ranked relays. There were 38 swimmers who had at least one Top 10 swim; Greg Harris led the way with 9 ranked swims. There were seven swimmers who had at least one top-ranked swim in an individual event: Laura Walker and Johnnie Detrick were at the top of the heap in three events each. Other top-ranked swimmers from our LMSC were Greg, Beth Schreiner (2), Kevin Mastracci (2), Shirley Loftus-Charley (2), and Austin Glass. Four relays also were ranked #1 in their age groups: three from VMST and one from Club Tribe.

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.

The LMSC record book was also re-written in the past SCM season:  32 new individual records were set. There were also 8 new LMSC relay records, 6 by VMST and 2 by Club Tribe. The VMST 800 freestyle relay of Barbara Boslego, Johnnie Detrick, Terry Sue Gault and Shirley Loftus-Charlie set a new national record in the280-319 age group. Great job, ladies!

The mythical national championship rankings are based on scoring the Top 10 swims by zone, LMSC or club. As an LMSC, Virginia was ranked 14th out of the 52 LMSCs. At the club level, VMST was ranked 21st out of more than 250 clubs that had swimmers in the Top 10. Wow!

Congratulations to everyone on a great season!
