IM-Xtreme Challenge Games at University of Maryland
TVSC Finishes in 7th Place in Team Competition

Individual Results       Results Girls       Results Boys
IMX Point Rankings       IMX Team Standings

The Northeast IM-Xtreme Challenge Games was first held in January of 2011. However, TVSC's first one was the following year - 2012. The meet was still small with only one session per day in the morning and that gave swim families the Saturday afternoon off to go site seeing in Washington DC on a spring like winter day, and everyone returned home on Sunday before dark.

This IMX meet immediately became one of favorite meets of the season for our 9 to 14 year old swimmers!

TVSC swimmers who competed in first one in 2012 at the "Takoma" pool in DC and are still swimming for TVSC were: Emily Bardak (but she got sick and returned home without swimming), Ryan Kaplan, Cameron Kubik, Natalie Giunta, Charlie Shemet, Luka Zuric, Andrew Stange, and Chris O'Shea.

This was our sixth IM-Xtreme meet and 40 (!!!) swimmers and their families, and coaches Kerry, Mary and Peter traveled to "UMD" in College Park, Maryland: 34 Juniors and 6 Seniors. After competing the week before at the TVSC Joust, our athletes still swam 99 best times.

Like every year, some swimmers were sick or became sick during meet: Hannah Matheson missed the whole; meet, Nick Londono only swam 500 and went home sick on Saturday; Jenna Mond swam Friday and Saturday not feeling well and went home Saturday afternoon; Abbie Dimac did not feel well but swam the 500 on Friday and 100 back and 200 IM on Sunday. Mar Prieto did not feel well, but still competed in all IMX events. And Sydney Boals swam not fully recovered from ankle injury.

For many swimmers this was their first big travel meet, and some did very well (Tori, Erica, and Enrique), while others were nervous / intimidated by the large meet, the two competition pool facility, and the strong competition, and did not swim as well as at the TVSC Joust the week before. But they have now learned what to expect for the next big travel meet -- it is just another meet . . . .

New time standards: 1 'AAAA' times, 5 'AAA' times, 2 'AA' times, 8 'A' times, and 3 new 'BB' times. New qualification times: 2 Sectional cuts, 7 Zone Qualifier cuts, 1 JO cut, and 8 new Silver cuts.

TVSC finished 7th in the combined team competion behind several "mega" teams surrounding the DC metropolitan area. That IM based training we do is always paying off at this meet!

Emily Herr won first place for 9-year old girls, Colin Veit was 5th for 9-year old boys, Kyra Sommerstad was 6th for 14-year old girls, and Cj Pergan was 12th for 14-year old boys, Congratulations!

2017 TVSC Joust

Individual Results       Meet Results

Did you remember that the 2016 TVSC Joust was canceled after the Friday distance session due to a snow storm that dumped 24 inches (60 cm) of snow on Long Island that Saturday? Three Village School District needed Sunday to clear the snow from school parking lots and sidewalks, and did not let TVSC run the Joust on Sunday. For swim families able to dig themselves out of snow on Sunday morning, Stony Brook School allowed us run time trials in their pool that afternoon.

No snow storms during this year's TVSC Joust. And as usual the TVSC Board and TVSC parents ran another smooth home meet. Thank you parents!

165 TVSC athletes raced 1021 times and swam 630 best times -- 62%. Total time improvement 1710 seconds, or more than 28 minutes. New time standards: 7 'AAA' times, 16 'AA' times, 38 'A' times, 84 'BB' times, 66 'B' times, New qualification times: 2 NCSA cuts, 1 Sectional cut, 3 Senior Mets cuts, 22 Zone Qualifier cuts, 20 JO cuts, and 88 new Silver cuts.

They did this afternoon and did well, and TVSC coaches really like this! Great job Emma and Jenna!

16th Annual TVSC Mile
Meet Results

The first TVSC Mile was held in early January 2001. The 16th TVSC Mile was held this past weekend (due to rennovation of the Ward Melville pool in 2003 we did not swam the Mile that year). After 16 times, still nobody "died" swimming in the TVSC mile, and while many first timers were very nervous, there were no tears and after they completed the 66 length race they were happy and proud they swam and completed it! Emma and Tori got the stomach bug after they warmed up and could not swim the mile. Kaitlyn was tough and swam the mile plus an extra 50 yards with a sore knee and pushed off from wall with one leg for 40+ turns!

Best race of meet:  Hope Farrell and Mar Prieto. Both girls swam side-by-side the whole race, with lead changes almost every turn, and they finished within a couple of tenths of each other. Mar was the faster swimmer "above" water, but Hope was the faster swimmer "under water" and she used that "secret weapon -- the "5th stroke" perfectly and gained about two feet per turn. In other words, Mar swam 40+ yards more than Hope and this race shows just how important those fast turns, underwater kick-outs and break-outs are!

48 senior and junior swimmers swam the mile - 11 for the first time, 1 junior swam the 1,000 free and 18 Novice swimmers swam the 500 free, 17 for the first time. Total time improvement 3,464 seconds, or more than 57 minutes! New time standards: 1 'AAA' times, 9 'AA' times, 7 'A' times, 21 'BB' times, and 27 'B' times.

Hauppauge Swim Club Holiday Prelims / Finals Invite

Individual Results       Meet Results

At last weekend's Prelims / Finals Invite by Hauppague Swim Club 77 TVSC raced 615 times and swam 343 best times -- 56%. Total time improvement 910 seconds, or more than 15 minutes. They achieved 7 new 'AA' times, 32 new 'A' times, 60 new'BB' times, and 25 new 'B' times, New qualification times: 8 Zone Qualifier cuts, 4 JO cuts, and 42 Silver cuts.

Many TVSC swimmers took advantage of the Prelims / Finals meet by qualifying for and competing in finals at night, many for the first time in their young swimming careers. Several swimmers swam real well in finals -- swam faster at finals then during prelims (great job!), but nerves affected performance of several others. However, the only way to learm how to perform in a prelims / finals meet is competing at meets like this. The more finals you swim the more experience you get. For most final swimmers at this meet the next prelims / finals meet will be Counties in April at the end of the Short course season and now they know what to expect. Of course if you scratch finals you never learn and unfortunatly some TVSC swimmers did not take advantage of the oppurtunity to compete in finals.

Point earners for TVSC

Absolutely awesome racing by our swimmers this past weekend! The best team meet Three Village Swim Club has ever had! All our 9-10, 11-12, 13-14 and 15-18 age group swimmers contributed to the victory, Great job!

38 of our athletes, their families and coaches Mark, Peter, Kerry, Caryn and Taylor traveled to Lancaster, Pennsylvania, for the 21st Annual Holiday Classic. Also on Friday TVSC alumnus and Franklin & Marshall College Sophomore student, Matt Pozmanter, helped out coaching as Caryn and Taylor were not there yet. Thanks Matt. TVSC has competed at this meet for two decades (20 years) and TVSC has now won the team competition four times, the previous time was two years ago.

Our swimmers raced 359 times and swam 253 best times -- 70%. The total time improvement was an unbelievable 622 seconds, or more than 10 minutes, or an average of a 2.45 seconds drop per race! Also 25 new 'AAAA' times were swum (years ago TVSC swimmers achieved a total of 3 or 4 'AAAA' times in a whole season), 36 'AAA' times, 24 'AA' times, and 4 'A' times. New qualification times: 4 Winter Jr National cuts, 15 NCSA cuts, 20 Sectional cuts, 18 Senior Mets cuts, 32 Zone Qualifier cuts, 6 JO cuts, and 2 new Silver cuts.

On the last day of competition we still had many swimmers swim personal bests in prelims and than again in finals in ther 10th to 20th race of the meet. For example, Brendan Williams, who raced over 3 miles this meet, won the mile on Sunday evening dropping 30 seconds, and 15 minutes later he swam another best time in 200 back in a new Sectional cut. After being injured last short course season, Luka Zuric swam seven NCSA Junior National cuts and one winter Junior National cut! Cj Pergan was "perfect" - raced 14 times including 5 finals and swam 9 best times in prelims and 5 more in finals: 14 - 5 - 14. Luka 18 - 9 - 15, Ryan Kaplan 13 - 6 - 11, Hope Farrell 14 - 5 - 11, Henry Shemet 11 - 3 - 10, Brendan Williams 16 - 7 - 14.
