Meet results Individual results
48 athletes swam in the possible most successful TVSC team competion meet ever this past weekend at the December 19th Annual Holiday Classic at the Franklin & Marshall College Aquatic & Sports complex in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Before the start of Sunday finals, math wizzes Ryan and Eric scored the finals heat sheet and calculated that the Golden Ram Aquatics (GRA) would win the meet by two points if all GRA and TVSC swimmers finished in same place as heat sheet, During finals GRA led until the last event, when 16 TVSC 200 Fly Top-16 swimmers, including seven (7) 13-14 boys, erased a 60 point deficit and turned it into a 40 point lead and the Team Competition win! In other words, most TVSC swimmers moved up - finished higher in finals than in prelims. Great job!
TVSC athletes raced 392 times and swam 235 best times or 60%. Many 11 & Overs swam best times in prelims in the morning and went even faster in finals at night! Total time improvement 418 sec or an average improvemnt of 1.79 seconds per race! New time standards: 16 'AAAA' times, 58 'AAA' times, 30 'AA' times, and 11 'A' times. New qualification times: 7 NCSA Jr National cuts, 18 Sectional cuts, 31 Senior Mets cuts and 24 new Zone Qualifier cuts.
