Records & Top 10

SCM 2018 Season Wrap-Up

The final Top 10 lists for the 2018 short-course meters season (SCM18) have been published. The season ran from Jan 1, 2018, thru Dec 31, 2018.

Swimmers from our LMSC did well: 127 ranked individual swims and 21 ranked relays. There were 36 swimmers who had at least one Top 10 swim; Shirley Loftus-Charley led the way with 15 listings, followed closely by Greg Harris with his 14 rankings. There were 12 swimmers who had at least one top-ranked swim in an individual event, with Len Gushe taking top spot in five events and Shirley doing so in four events. Other top-ranked swimmers from our LMSC were Cory Camp, Jeanne Meredith, Lewis Burras, Denise Letendre, Beth Schreiner, Greg Harris, Marcia Barry, Deidre Geroni, Katie Grier, and James Henderson. Wow, that’s a lot of fast swimming!

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:  55 new individual records were set. Our LMSC was also impressive at the zone level, setting 15 new Colonies Zone records, with Greg and Len setting four zone records apiece and Lewis Burras setting three 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 13th out of the 52 LMSCs. At the club level, VMST was ranked 15th out of the 258 clubs that had members who recorded Top 10 swims. Great job!

Congratulations to everyone on a great season!
