There were 1,200+ swimmers from over 150 clubs in attendance for this five day event: the 2016 USMS Summer Nationals in Mt. Hood, Oregon this August. The summer Nationals is always done in a Long Course Meters setting. A few swimmers from Niagara made it out to the meet...

Fairport Area Swim Team Masters came in 36th place for Men's Team scores. Binghamton University Masters Swimming (BUMS) came in 59th place for Women's Team scores.

Dorothy Tourtual (BUMS) scored in four of her five events in the Women's 65-69 age group, highlighted by two silver medals: 800 free (2nd), 400 IM (2nd), 100 free (4th), and 200 breast (5th). With split times included, Dorothy broke eight Niagara LMSC records.

Greg Danner (FAIR) scored in all five of his events, winning the Men's 200 fly, 200 IM, 400 IM, and 800 free in the 35-39 age group. His fifth swim yielded a silver in the 100 fly. He broke the Niagara records in each of those events.

Scott Doescher (FAIR) placed 18th in the Men's 45-49 age group, after being out of the water for 30 years. The Rochester Democrat & Chronicle recently published an article about Scott's return to the pool as part of his recovery from prostate cancer just four months ago. You can read that article here: http://www.democratandchronicle.com/story/sports/columnist/2016/08/17/cancer-diagnosis-leads-swimmer-back-pool/88458888/.

 

 
Awards and Ithaca Meet Results PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 26 August 2016 16:50

At the 4th Annual Ithaca LCM Masters meet, we honored Kevin Markwardt as last year's Skehan Award winner. Our Skehan Award highlights individuals who have provided Niagara with significant contributions. Kevin has been a regular masters meet host in Ithaca dating back to the 1990's. His yards meet in the fall/winter has been a staple of Niagara LMSC over the years. The addition of a long course meters meet (after they had a new facility built) has given our swimmers competitive opportunities that are not available for many LMSCs around this country. Thank you, Kevin!

Ithaca meet results are available online.

Earlier in the year, we announced two other award winners for 2015:

Lorie Rick - Coach of the Year. Our inaugural coaching award was best suited for our longest running and most successful masters coach in Rochester (and arguably, Niagara as a whole). Lorie regularly coaches swimmers in the USMS Top Ten and often to Zone, National, and All-American titles. Her swimmers are undoubtedly fit individuals who enjoy having her coaching expertise!

Mike Cahill - Appreciation Award. Mike has been hosting at least one annual meet in Rochester dating back to 2007. This is another example of a college coach supporting the adult swimming community every year. Thank you, Mike!

Details on 2016 nominations will be available in the coming months.

There are plenty of wineries in the area to visit after the meet or the Ithaca Beer Company!
