TVSC Finishes in Second Place at the
2017 ASCSC Relay Carnival

First Hills (612 points), second TVSC (588 points), 3rd LIE (582 points)
As one of everyone's favorite meets of the season, Three Village Swim Club swimmers did well at this season's Relay Carnival at the Nassau Aquatic Center. Before the Crescendo Relay at the end of the meet, TVSC was tied for second place with the Long Island Express team, but TVSC could only win the meet with a DQ from Hills and that did not happen.

For first time in many years TVSC wond the Cresendo Relay. Congratulations: Emily Herr (27.8), Olivia Schlegel (26.8), Sydney Boals (24.9), Emily Bardak (24.7), Luka Zuric (22.2), Liam Preston (24.6), Nick Londono (25.6) and Ryan Sommerstad (29.5).

Our 10 & Under girls won all four relays! Our 13-14 girls won the fly, breast, and free relays. Our 11-12 girls won the breast relay, and 11-12 boys and 15-18 boys won the 200 free relays.

With input of other coaches, Coach Mark, spend days on trying to enter the best relay teams. And without the 15-18 girls 200 back relay DQ and a few more tweaks to several relay teams, we may have had a chance to win this year's Relay Carnival. This shows how difficult it is to pick the best relays early in the new season, but coming up with a better relay after the race is over does not help. Maybe a group of TVSC swimmers can write a computer program to find the best relay teams for the Relay Carnival for next year!

Like last season, the Association of Suffolk County Swim Coaches (ASCSC) decided to allow unattached swimmers to compete for their new teams, and that does not follow USA-Swimming regulations. So, what this means is that the meet results are not uploaded into the USA-Swimming's TIMES data base AND therefore the lead-off swim times are not official.

Welcome to the Start of the 2017-2018 Swim Season

The new swim season started last week for the Senior and Junior swimmers at the Holtsville pool with unseasonable cool - fall like - air temperatures. The water temperature at Holtsville pool was OK and our swimmers "toughed it out" this past week.

Like previous years the Senior and Junior teams will continue to train and do dryland at Holtsville for another three weeks in evening before returning indoors on September 25. The practice schedule has been posted on the TVSC Calendar.

New for this year on TVSC web site is an All-Time Top-25. The short-course Top-25 was posted today, the long-course Top-25 will follow soon. Also, on the TVSC Team Record page Long Course Relay Records were added.

Some notes about the All-Time Top-25. TVSC was founded in 1973 BEFORE (HOME) COMPUTERS. Until the mid 1990s meet results were done by hand. Stopwatch times written on small pieces of paper were sorted by hand and then the results for each events were typed on a typewriter with carbon paper to create multiple copies as copy machines did not exist yet either.

Needless to say in those days swim clubs did not maintain an All-Time Top Times lists. Clubs barely kept track of team records as you can see on TVSC Team Records page - some of the old team records don't have dates and several relays records don't have the names of the relay swimmers. And TVSC did not keep Long Course Team Records until a few years ago.

What this means is that the All-Time Top-25 list only has times starting from the 2000-2001 swim season, when USA-Swimming created the SWIMS time data base. Times from TVSC swimmers from 1973 to August of 2000 were not saved. For first couple of years, only "big meet" results were uploaded into the SWIMS data base. Starting in the 2003-2004 season most or all meets were uploaded. Because of this the number 1 ranking for each event, gender and age group may not be the same as the TVSC Team Record.

8 & Unders USA-Swimming does not save 8-&-Under times for 25 yard events in their SWIMS times data base, as USA-S wants to deemphasize the importance of times and rankings for the youngest competitve swimmers. So, we will comply with that by only posting All-Time Top-25 times for 10-&-Unders.

The reason for creating the All-Time Top-25 is that most of the TVSC Team Records extremely hard to break. So, we hope that our swimmers use it to set goals for themselves this season: make the All-Time Top-25 in their best event(s)! Good luck this season!

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.
