Chilly night .... but great swims at Highland Park!
Swimmers (and parent volunteers!) braved the chilly, damp weather and had a fun time .... and some good swim times too! There were 44 personal best times (compared to Time Trials). Well done, swimmers!
Time Trials - Off to a Great Start!
What a beautiful day for a meet! 94 swimmers took to the lanes Saturday to swim their first meet of the 2012 season!
The results table for meets is in the right-hand side of this page.
The results are organized by swimmer name. To read the table:
Name (age) (gender)
timeS F #Event Event Description
(The "S" after the time designate a 'short-course' or 25meter pool. The "F" before the Event number is mostly irrelevant for our meets; it means it was a "Final" event and not a prelim race. The NVSL meets are all "Finals" so you can ignore that designation.)
The age should be the swimmer's age as of 6/1/2012.
If there is a "DQ" next to the time, that means the swimmer disqualified on some aspect of the stroke --- please see "What is a DQ?" on our FAQs page.
If you have any questions about the information on the results files, please ask the team reps or data coordinator .... questions and corrections help us make sure information is accurate and up-to-date!
