Piranhas Shine in YMCA National Virtual Meet

The results of the 2015 7th Annual National YMCA Virtual Invitational Swim Meet have been published.

What is the National Virtual Swim Meet? It is an opportunity for all the YMCA Swim Teams in the USA to compete with each other during one weekend of competition.  YMCA meets are held during one scheduled weekend and the results are emailed and compiled by the National YMCA.  The Lynchburg YMCA competed in a Y meet with the Waynesboro and Charlottesville YMCAs at the end of 2015 and those results were sent into the National YMCA to be entered in the meet.

The Lynchburg YMCA Swim Team placed 23rd in the country out of 152 teams and 9231 swimmers competing. The meet was won by North Shore YMCA out of Sterling, MA, followed closely by Boise Family YMCA and then Piedmont Family Y (Charlottesville).  

The boy’s team was 21st and the girl’s team finished 23rd overall.  LY had 5 age groups that finished in the top 30 in the Virtual Meet.
