Week 4 is now in the books. It almost felt like the first week of the season with the cool chill in the early morning. So cool I saw lots of swimmers breaking out the jackets and parkas. Once the sun was fully up the day was probably the best I have seen this season. Not too hot thankfully. A few kids will agree that today was a great day as both an individual and relay PWSL record fell and 3545 splashes were faster than their seed times out of 9655 splashers. Dominion Valley's own Lleyton Arnold broke the boys 11-12 50 meter backstroke record with a new time of 32:08. During the last event of the day for Sudley the girls 200 meter freestyle relay team updated the PWSL record board with a new time of 1:57.88. The relay consisted of Sydney Craft, Stella Chierico, Delaney Palenscar and Jamie Cornwell. Congratulations to the all the swimmers this week.
On the team front we had 1 upset this week and one division match up. Montclair swam up a division this week to beat Ben Lomond. Two undefeated teams in the same division swam each other this week. As it turns out this was also the closest meet of the week as Piedmont edged out Sudley by only 73 points. I can only imagine how load the crowd was during the relays. Two meets remain before these two teams battle it out again.
All meets this season are being sent to Reachforthewall.org and being uploaded to the site. Please take the time to check it out. Several years are missing here and there but the database contains meets from about 2009. I will be working with them to add past meets to help fill the gaps. I would like to make this database as complete as possible for current swimmers, I will be working on this task in the off season.
Please see the updated summary sheet for an overview of all the meets.The Top 25 individual times and Top 15 Relays of the week are also available. This week's cyber meet, league record file and the PDF version of the summary report are available to the computer reps on pwswim.com while interactive results are available at www.pwswimmeets.com
