The meet results for the Binghamton University Masters Swim Meet have been posted on our site as well as uploaded to USMS.org. Please go to our Results section for more information.

There were three LMSC records broken (a fourth is posted on the record breakers sheet, but it is from an Adirondack swimmer, therefore ineligible). At the conclusion of the Short Course Yards season, the yards records file (pdf) will be updated.

Some photos taken during the meet were added to our Gallery. If you would like to send in photos for any masters event, please contact the webmaster.

Colonies Zone Championships are taking place next weekend in Virginia. Entries are due by tomorrow, April 6th, at midnight. There are over 25 Niagara LMSC athletes already entered in the meet, most of them from BUMS.

USMS Nationals are in North Carolina at the end of the month. Entries are closed for that competition. There are 10 Niagara swimmers registered for that meet.

Good luck to everyone swimming this month!

With the advice and consent of the Board of Directors, the Chairman has appointed Dan Kornblatt to the position of Vice Chair of Niagara LMSC. Dan will be an advisor to the BOD and will assume an interim Chair role in the event of an emergency. Additionally, he will attend the annual USMS convention if the Chair is unable to do so. This is a new position within the LMSC.

Also with approval from the BOD, Kay Turner has been appointed as the new Sanctions officer. Her responsibilities include reviewing all meet sanction requests and coordinating that process with meet directors so we can provide as many competitive opportunities as possible for our members. Kay is replacing longtime volunteer Amy Johnson. Amy has held a position within the LMSC since 1996 and was this year's Skehan award winner. More details of prior Niagara award winners will be forthcoming in a new section of the website.

Both Dan and Kay have previously held volunteer positions with the LMSC and we thank them for once again stepping up to the starting blocks!
