Eastern Zone IM-Xtreme Challenge Games
at University of Maryland
Meet results Individual results Individual IMX rankings
30 TVSC athletes and their families traveled to Maryland this past weekend for the annual Eastern Zone IM-Xtreme Games at the beautiful Eppley Natatorium on the University of Maryland College Park campus. While for the faster TVSC swimmers the Speedo Cup is a tough meet racing up to 21 times, the IMX meet is tough for all competitors, as they compete in the hardest events only (no 50s for 12 Unders and no 100s for 13-14s). With less than an ideal training week before the meet (due to snow days there were 1 1/2 practices) our Xtreme competitors still did very well with 98 best times in 163 races (60%)!
New time standards: 5 'AAAA' times, 7 'AAA' times, 7 'AA' times, 9 'A' times, 4 'BB' times, New qualification times: 1 Sectional cut, 4 Senior Mets cuts, 5 Zone Qualifier cuts, 1 JO cut, and 8 new Silver cuts.
Incomplete List of High Lights
In its fifth year the Eastern Zone IM-Xtreme Games meet is getting stronger and stronger but TVSC still finished 5th in team competition behind local "mega" clubs . . . . . IM based training (working on all four strokes in practice) works! . . . . . Keep working hard on your weak strokes . . . . . The TVSC 14-years olds, who competed in their fourth straight IMX meet, were sad they cannot come back to this great 14 & Under event next year . . . . . Great facility and great meet and for coaches and families with younger swimmers worth missing the Super Bowl for . . . . . In between sessions swim families did some sight seeing in Washington DC, and/or went shopping and/or went to the movies and/or studied for school midterms . . . . . This meet is like a Speedo Sectional meet for 14 & unders . . . . . Because of a toe injury Jason was not able to defend his IMX title from last year, but he still was 7th for 13-year old boys . . . . . TVSC swimmers who swam fast at TVSC Joust the weekend before, swam even faster at this meet . . . . . TVSC swimmers who took full advantage of competing in a fast pool by swimming fast . . . . . You can be the fastest swimmer in Suffolk county or in Long Island or in Metro LSC, but at a meet like this there always be faster swimmers . . . . . For example, Angelina swims an unbelievable 1:08.8 in 100 breast and is only 2nd and Liam swims an unbelievable 2:08.0 in 200 free and is only 2nd . . . . .
