Records & Top 10

LCM 2018 Season Wrap-Up

The final Top 10 lists for the 2018 long-course meters season (LCM18) have been published. The season ran from Oct 1, 2017, thru Sept 30, 2018.

Swimmers from our LMSC did well: 87 ranked individual swims and 1 ranked relay. There were 20 swimmers who had at least one Top 10 swim; Greg Harris and Len Gushe tore up the men’s 55-59 age group with 13 and 12 ranked swims, respectively; Ida Hlavacek was also impressive with 11 ranked swims. There were seven swimmers who had at least one top-ranked swim in an individual event, with Len taking top spot in four events and Greg doing so in three events. Other top-ranked swimmers from our LMSC were Beth Schreiner (2), Johnnie Detrick (2), Marcia Barry (2), Luke Nelson, and Morgan Latimer.

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 LCM season:  35 new individual records were set. Our LMSC was also impressive at the zone level, setting 17 new Colonies Zone records, with Greg and Len setting five records apiece and Marcia setting four new 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 14th out of the 52 LMSCs. At the club level, VMST was ranked 21st out of the 279 clubs that had members who recorded Top 10 swims. Great job!

Congratulations to everyone on a great season!
