Sunday wrapped up the final day of the 2016 MCSL season.
In the individual all-star events, the star of the show seemed to be the Jolyn trunk show. At least for the girls. While they might have busy buying cute suits, everyone was decked out in their fastskins, proving once again that the kids in the MCSL come to championship meets ready to swim fast. For fun, we decided to score the meet using a 1-20 scoring system. The top ten teams are as follows:
Tally Ho 299
Regency Estates 255
Connecticut Belair 230
Country Glen 219
Woodley Gardens 195
Keep in mind that MCSL does NOT score this meet, we just wanted to see how things would play out if they did. It’s also important to note that a lot of top swimmers scratch this meet – some decided to take family vacations and a lot of the older kids are training for and are in the middle of a taper for some of the larger championship meets. (Be sure to keep your eye out for a “food for thought” article later this week about the scoring of meets!)
The teams and divisions were all well represented at All-Stars this year. We want to recognize teams that had 15 or more individual races (if a swimmer swam two events that would be counted as two races). They are as follows:
Bethesda 15, Cedarbrook 19, Connecticut Belair 19, Country Glen 21, Franklin Knolls 16, Germantown 22, Olney Mill 15, Regency Estates 19, Rockville 43, Stonegate 33, Tally Ho 21, Tilden Woods 16, Woodcliff 20, Woodley Gardens 19, Wildwood Manor 18.

Event 11 Boys 11-12 50 SC Meter Freestyle

Catherine Belyakov was .32 off 13-14 IM and Catherine and (13)Brett being at the bottom of their age group (13) will have the 2017 MCSL season to work towards those (and other records).
