The regular season dual meets are complete, next up divisionals!!!! This is where are the practice meets of the season come to an end and the best swims for most will show. Thankfully the weather held off this Saturday for most. There were two meets that did not get a chance to hold the freestyle relays. However they did complete all the individual events giving every swimmer a chance for that one last swim before divisionals. We had one undefeated team this year for the dual meets,.congratulations to Piedmont. Prince William Swim League also had one swimmer set a new record for the girls 13-14 50 Backstroke. Congratulations to Aris Runnels of Ridgewood by setting a new time of 30.40. As a league we also had 3606 swimmers with a total of 9637 splashes. Of the 9637 splashes 3593 were personal best. This averages out to an increase of speed by 34%.
Divisionals are this weekend which will mark the end of the season and the start of vacations to many. This is the biggest meet of the season for all teams and swimmers. Not only is a swimmer competing for their team to win, they are competing across the whole county. Every season after the divisional meet the computer reps hold a Cyber meet. Here we merge all the data to see how the swimmers would have compared to each other if this was just one big meet in a single pool. Then PWSL will reward the top 24 swimmers per event with a league place ribbon.
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 Top15 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
