Records & Top 10

SCY 2018 Season Wrap-Up

The final Top 10 lists for the 2018 short-course yards season (SCY18) have been published. The season ran from June 1, 2017, thru May 31, 2018.

Swimmers from our LMSC did well: 136 ranked individual swims and 39 ranked relays. There were 45 swimmers who had at least one Top 10 swim; Johnnie Detrick led the way with nine ranked swims while Greg Harris and Val Van Horn Pate ranked in seven swims each. There were seven swimmers who had at least one top-ranked swim in an individual event: Johnnie was at the top of the heap with five #1 swims while Lucas Bureau was also impressive with four winners. Other top-ranked swimmers from our LMSC were Katie Grier (2), Beth Schreiner (2), Marina FalconeAndrew Greenhalgh, and Greg Harris. A whopping 13 relays from our LMSC also were ranked #1 in their age groups: eight from Club Tribe and five from 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.

The LMSC record book was also re-written in the past SCM season:  71 new individual records and 22 new LMSC relay records were set. Our LMSC was also impressive at the zone level, setting 22 new Colonies Zone records, with Lucas Bureau setting six and Val Van Horn Pate setting five new zone marks.

The mythical national championship rankings are based on scoring the Top 10 swims by zone, LMSC or club. As an LMSC, Virginia was ranked 10th out of the 52 LMSCs. At the club level, Club Tribe was ranked 14th while VMST was ranked 17th out of more than 300 clubs that had members who recorded Top 10 swims. Wow!

Congratulations to everyone on a great season!
