Summer 2018 LCM Championship Highlights

  • Total New LMC NAAC Team Records for 2018 – 42
  • New Individual Team Records – 34
  • New Relay Team Records - 8


The 2018 LCM TYR Pro Series Meet at OSU took place July 5-8, with 11 NAAC swimmers competing.  We included the TYR Meet along with Sr. Meet as our 2 primary Sr. Championship meets this year due to the high level of competition at TYR and the proximity of both meets.  The TYR Pro was a very successful meet for our qualified swimmers, who all had the opportunity to share the pool and compete with several US Olympians!  NAAC swimmers were all suited up for this meet, with some shaved, but none of our Sr. swimmers peaking for this or any meet this summer (our Sr groups peak in Nov/Dec and again in Feb/Mar) – so a particularly good showing with 15 new best times of 25 swims, all un-rested!  Representing NAAC at individual evening Finals swims were 6 individual swimmers, with 8 new team records at this meet.


The 2018 LC Senior Meet at Denison took place July 12-15.  We missed our usual dorm-sharing summer bonding with the close proximity of the meet but did have a lot of fun and fast swims despite not being rested – again as at TYR, all suited up and most swimmers shaved – ready but not rested!  NAAC Finished the meet in 6th place of 30+ teams with 40 competing swimmers tallying 867.5 points in total (440.5 points for the Men in 5th; and 392 points for the Women in 5th as well).  Our swimmers earned 8 New Team Records at the meet; 3 individual and 5 relay records.


The 2018 LC JO Championship at Miami U took place July 19-22, and NAAC had 31 swimmers competing, with 15 new qualifying times from the Regional meet at BG 2 weeks prior.  NAAC finished in 11th place of 55 teams present (NAAC Girls 7th @ 480 pts; NAAC Boys 12th @ 246 points) with a total of 726 points.  We set 15 New Individual Team Records and 3 New Team Relay Records, and we had a record 72% personal best individual times along with 85% of our relays scoring.


2018 Zone Meet competing with Team Ohio – NAAC had 10 competitors participating in the Central Zone Meet hosted at Spire (Geneva, OH) over Aug 2-5.
