The names of the All-Americans and All-Stars for 2011 have been released! There were 22 individual All-Americans in our LMSC (6 long-distance, 16 pool) as well as 18 relay All-Americans. Three All-Stars (2 pool, 1 long distance) hail from our LMSC.
There were two championship meets held in mid-April: YMCA Masters Nationals (Apr 14-17) and Colonies Zone SCY Championship (Apr 15-17). An impressive 76 members of our LMSC participated in one of these meets!
Training and racing for open water swims certainly puts you in situations you never find in the pool! VMST members Kelly (Parker) Palace and husband Mark are preparing for the 2nd Annual Kingdom Swim (July 24) in Lake Memphremagog, Vermont; apparently this couple who had the same idea.
