TVSC Finishes One of Most Successful Seasons
in Team History!

The 2016-2017 swim season ended last weekend with the U.S. Open at the Nassau Aquatic Center, Eastern Zone Age Group Championships in Richmond Virginia and Speedo Junior Nationals at the Nassau Aquatic Center.

The progression of meets for 15 & Overs in the U.S. is LSC Senior Championships (Sr Mets), Zone Championships (EZ Sr Champs), NCSA Jr Nats (18&U), Futures, Speedo Jr Nats (18&U), U.S. Open, Sr Nationals and Olympic Trials. Chris O'Shea qualified for U.S. Open in 100 back at Sr Mets in July. Andrew Stange, Chris O'Shea and Kyra Sommerstad qualified for Speedo Jr Nationals. Casey Gavigan, Andrew Stange, Chris O'Shea and Kyra Sommerstad are getting closer and closer to qualifying for the 2020 U.S. Olympic Team Swimming Trials. The 2020 Olympic Trail cuts will be announced next month and the cuts are expected to be several tenths faster than in 2016. At his first U.S. Open Chris swam a best time in 100 fly and swam his best morning swim in 100 back and just missed qualifying for the 18&U bonus final.

Andrew Stange swam all best times at his first (and last) Speedo Jr Nationals and he made C-final in 100 free and B-final in 200 free. Something that does not happen very often is that during finals with Coach Mike on deck, Andrew broke Coach Mike's 2004 TVSC Team Record in 200 free by 0.3 seconds - 1:52.5. But it did happen a second time this summer. Coach Mike was on deck when Brendan Williams broke Mike's 400 free record at EZ Sr Champs the week before.

TVSC swimmers Emily Herr, Colin Veit, AvaGrace Monti, Nick Londono, Hunter Emerson, Hope Farrell and Kaitlyn Ehlers represented the Metro Zone team in Virginia. Metro finished 4th in the Eastern Zone competion. Even at the end if the of a long season our swimmers swam lots of best times. Emily Herr broke four team records: 50 free and 100 breast from 2003 by Alyssa Brennan, and her own 50 fly and 200 IM records from earlier this season. And she swam un unbelievable fast - 1:12 - split in 100 fly leg of the winning Metro 10-&-Under Girls 400 Medley Relay. Hunter 2:54 in 200 breast and six best times, AvaGrace Monti 38 in 50 breast and 1:22 100 breast, Hope 1:20 in 100 breast, Kaitlyn 1:08 in 100 fly.

West Neck Open Water Meet



15 TVSC Junior team swimmers in their Open Water swim T-shirt designed by Hope Farrell (and Coach Joe)competed and we did not loose anybody, but is was certainly an exciting mornimg on West Neck beach. With a 15 knot west wind and a strong incoming tide (due to the full moon - spring tide) the conditions were far from optimal. The 10 & Under race and 5K race started as planned, but many less experiemnced or less conditioned swimmers could not handle the currents on the west-ward leg and were taken of the course by watercrafts. So, the rest of the races were held on a shortened course as not only the swimmers but also the safety people in kajaks and lifeguards on surf boards had trouble on the west-ward leg of the course. And can you believe it, our Junior team swimmers were not happy about that, and they would have just been fine swimming their 1 or 2 km races. Still, it was a nice team building event completely different then the 4+ hour long meets held at indoor swimming pool throughout the regular swim season.

Click on picture for larger size - if you zoom in to the jet ski in the water you can see the offical and the jet ski operator in the water. They fell off near the starting line due to weather conditions.
