WOW is all I can say for the meets this year. I would like to say this year was the tightest meets I had seen overall. All eight divisions were decided by 472 points or less between first and second place with the tightest being just 87 points. We had 3 divisions with a difference of only 788.5 points between first and third place with the yellow division only 314.5 points total in difference. Congrats to all teams on a great season.
So how did the swimmers do you ask? Just sit back and let this sink in. We had 12 league records broken this weekend. The following table is the list of all the PWSL records broken this week!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I would like to congratulate each one of these swimmers.

The record board has been updated.
I also heard many teams
had lots of team records broken today. Over all, the
league had 22 teams set new team records in
an impressive 137 events this weekend. Just
to make sure I did not mistype that, we had 22 teams set 137 new
team records this weekend. Yep it matched :) I guess with an
overall improvement of 50% in times recorded over seed times
records will fall.
Overall the swims were fast. As a league we had an increase of seed times by 50% with one team having 60% and another having 62% increase.
As always, after the divisional meet, the Computer Reps got together to see what would happen if the 3758 swimmers who had legal times in 10047 splashes in the county got together for one swim meet. Overall the top 24 times were very close this year and we had lots of ties. Looking forward too many more seasons with the closeness of the times and the improvements.
We are no longer working on the top times for each event page on our new results website. There is now a link on each week’s page for the top times. Please check out the top times for the county located at www.pwswim.org.
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 as well as the end of season reports including the excel version of top times, PDF version of top 25 swims for the season in every event and a PWSl league team manager database are available to the computer reps on this site; while interactive results are available at www.pwswim.org
