The Stacy Moor Memorial Meet at RIT wrapped up around 12:30 pm on Sunday. There were 56 swimmers in attendance. The meet results have been posted. After an early look, it appears that 10 swimmers set 15 new LMSC records! Congratulations to all record breakers and everyone who made it to the meet.

Our next Niagara LMSC sanctioned event is at Ithaca College on Saturday, December 14th for their 16th Annual SCY event. Of course, they switched facilities a two years ago when they had their new pool built and there have been over 80 swimmers at each meet since then.

There was a late bid on the Colonies Zone SCM Championship. That meet will occur the same weekend at Boston University. This event has been posted to the calendar.

In other news, Andrew Schaefer (BUMS) won the Men's 25-29 10K Postal Championship with a time of 2 hrs 23 minutes and 12 seconds. That's a long swim! Nice job, Andrew! Full 10K results are available: here.

Niagara membership total for the 2013 season: 594. This is our highest ever!

USMS Summer Nationals were held in Mission Viejo, California, home to one of the most storied programs in USA Swimming & Diving. The Nadadores program has sent at least one athlete to each Olympics dating back to 1976. They last held Nationals there in 2005.

Niagara LMSC had two representatives at the meet:

  • Priscilla Modrov won all four of her events in the 25-29 age group, easily breaking each of the Niagara records, and shattering the Colonies Zone records in the 200 butterfly and 800 freestyle.
  • Randy Mayall finished in the top 8 in each of his five events in the 45-49 age group, breaking three Niagara records in the process.

Great job! Full results can be seen here: http://www.usms.org/comp/lcnats13/results/.

All members should be aware that anyone can go to Nationals and swim up to three individual events, without meeting any qualifying times. The qualifying times are strictly for those athletes who want to do more than three events.
