Week 1 Recap
Sun, 6-26-2016
The 2016 league meet season got underway yesterday amidst comfortable weather and a continuation of last year's trend toward increased record breaking swims. In all, 6 swimmers combined to break 94 years worth of records across 4 different events.
In the Boys 11-12 50Y Breaststroke, it was Chinqapin's Ronan Lauinger touching the wall in 32.68, bettering the mark of 33.00 set three years ago.  The Burke Centre Penguins' JT Schmid, Stephen Dalil, Christopher Goggins and Will Tighe put together a time of 1:11.36 in the Boys 9-10 200M Medley relay, well under the old mark of 1:12.80 set in 1992.
And Janika Perezous of CountrySide was at it again, this time breaking two very old records.  In the Girls 13-14 50Y Backstroke, her time of 27.75 eclipsed the old mark of 28.37 set in 1983.  And in the Girls 13-14 100Y Individual Medley, Janika nipped the 1982 record of 1:03.70 with a time of 1:03.59.
Way to go, Ronan, JT, Stephen, Christopher, Will, and Janika!  Well done!

All-stars, Saturday, August 6

Wed, 7-29-2015
Seven triple winners and four league records highlighted this summer's All-star meet at Countryside.

Leading the way were 10-year old Mac Marsh of Arlington Knights of Columbus and 12-year old Janika Perezous of Countryside, both of whom fall into both categories.  Mac broke both of his records from Divisionals, speeding to times of 30.41 in Freestyle and 38.32 in Breaststroke, with the latter being the best in the DMV this summer by over 3 seconds.  Janika powered to an Individual Medley record with an outstanding time of 1:09.56, more than a second under the old mark set in 2013.  Chase Club's 14-year old Julia Moser was the other record breaker, lowering the mark in Breaststroke for the third time this summer with a sizzling fast time of 33.95.

The other five triple winners were 8-year old Micaela Perezous of Countryside, 10-year old Claire Mowery of Fort Myer, 14-year old Max Kuranda of Hayden Village, and 15-18's Caroline McCleskey and John Shebat of Franklin Farm.

Five CSL records fell at yesterday's four Division Qualification meets.  Arlington Knights of Columbus Holy Mackerel standout Mac Marsh was the first to strike, going 30.59 to break a 6-year old record in the Boys 9-10 50M Freestyle.  Mac also went nearly a full second under the 15-year old record in the Boys 9-10 50M Breaststroke with a time of 39.00, best in the DMV area this summer.

Camryn Barry of Broadlands set the new standard in Girls 15-18 50M Backstroke with a time of 30.14, which was 0.32 seconds under the mark set at last summer's All-star meet.  And Chase Club's Julia Moser was at it again, going under her already 2015-DMV fastest Girls 13-14 50M Breaststroke time with a new record swim of 34.07.  Last but certainly not least, it was John Shebat of Franklin Farm rocketing his way to an all time DMV-best time of 24.47 in the Boys 15-18 50M Backstroke.

Great swims, Mac, Camryn, Julia, and John!  Congratulations!

Week 5 Recap
Sun, 7-19-2015
The final three Division champions were crowned today as the 2015 CSL dual meet season drew to a close.
In the Gold Division, Chase Club pulled away after the Backstroke events to win their showdown with Sequoia Farms, claiming the title with a 5-0 record.  Chinquapin impressed by going undefeated and winning the crown in only their second Blue Division season, downing Franklin Glen in almost wire-to-wire fashion.  In the White Division, defending champion Broadlands lost to ManorGate in an unusual meet.  However, the Piranhas had previously clinched by virtue of their earlier wins over the Burke Centre Stingers and Arlington Knights of Columbus.  
In the Red Division, it might have been the most exciting Saturday ever.  One meet came down to the last two relays, both of which were decided by under a second, and each of the other two meets was decided by the final relay.  In the end, it was Franklin Farm just getting by Cascades to finish at 5-0 and win the title.
Congratulations, Froggers, Piranhas, Wahoos, and Sharks!  Nicely done!  
More records to announce...
Wednesday evening at Hayden Village, John Shebat of Franklin Farm completed his sweep of the Boys 15-18 meter pool records.  His Freestyle time of 23.06 lowered a 29-year old record by nearly a second.
On Saturday, Fort Myer standout Cyrus Beauvais struck again in the Boys 8&Under 25M Breaststroke, lowering his own record from last week to 20.29, again the fastest time ever for any northern Virginia league.  In the Girls 13-14 50M Breaststroke, Julia Moser of Chase Club broke a 6-year old mark with a sparkling time of 34.50 in the Girls 13-14 50M Breaststroke.
Lexi Cuomo of ManorGate dazzled in her meet against Broadlands.  In the Girls 13-14 50M Backstroke, Lexi's time of 30.19 was more than a half second under the previous record set last summer.  And in the Girls 13-14 50M Butterfly, she lowered her own mark from last week with a swim of 28.57.  Lexi is now over 0.5 seconds faster than the 15-18 Fly record.
Finally, the Burke Centre Penguins' Boys 15-18 200M Medley Relay consisting of Matthew Honnold, Luke Jones, Jacob Anglin, and Michael Meister went a crazy fast 1:51.47 to drop their year-old record by exactly three seconds.
Congratulations on some great swims, John, Cyrus, Julia, Lexi, Matthew, Luke, Jacob, and Michael!  Well done!

The due date for officials tests is being extended to Sunday, 26 July.

Please pass this information on to your officials and those training to become officials.

Week 4 Recap
Sun, 7-12-2015
Division races were brought into sharper focus as our week 4 meets completed under friendlier skies.  Three of the four division races will come down to the final weekend.

In the Gold Division, Chase Club visits Sequoia Farms this coming weekend in the meet that will decide things.  Chinquapin has a make up meet this Tuesday at Armfield Farm, then will return Saturday to nearby Franklin Glen on Saturday in the pivotal Blue Division meet.

Blue Update:  Chinquapin won at Armfield Farm on Tuesday evening (July 14).  Wahoos and Gators are now tied for first at 4-0.  Should be a fun duel-in-the-pool on Saturday at FG.
Broadlands edged the Burke Centre Stingers this past weekend. At 4-0, they hold the tiebreakers over the 2nd place Holy Mackerels and Stingers, and are therefore your White Division champs.  Congrats, Piranhas!
Finally, in the Red Division, Franklin Farm won a close one at Ashburn Village and now lead the standings at 4-0.  However, the Froggers still need a win versus Cascades this weekend to claim the title.  A Cascades win combined with an Ashburn Village loss at Burke Centre Penguins (who have swum this season's fastest time-in-water, btw) would give the Rapids the title.  A Cascades win combined with an Ashburn Village win would result in a three-way tie for first, and the tie-breakers (which would favor AV or CAS) would take over.
We have some league records to announce.  At Burke Centre, Cyrus Beauvais of Fort Myer swam a time of 20.40 in the Boys 8&Under 25M Breaststroke.  The old record of 21.15 was 27 years old.  At South Riding, it was the Stingrays' Girls 11-12 200M Medley relay consisting of Abby Church, Kathryn Oakford, Jennifer Luong and Abby Harrington combining for a time of 2:16.44, nearly three seconds under the previous mark.  At CountrySide, the Chinquapin Wahoos' relay consisting of Emil LaSida, Ronan Lauinger, William McLaury and Jacob Rosario went 2:17.70 in the Boys 11-12 200M Medley relay, lowering that record by more than three seconds.
Wrapping things up, Franklin Farm's John Shebat had quite a day at Ashburn Village.  In the Boys 15-18 50M Backstroke, John lowered his own league record by 0.79 seconds with a swim of 25.08.  In the Boys 15-18 50M Breaststroke, his time of 29.33 took over a second off a 14-year old record.  In the Boys 15-18 50M Butterfly, John swam 25.06 to take nearly a full second of his previous record.  And in the Boys 15-18 100M Individual Medley, he churned to a time of 55.27, almost 2-1/2 seconds faster than his record from last summer.
Congratulations, Cyrus, Abby, Kathryn, Jennifer, Abby, Emil, Ronan, William, Jacob and John.  Great swims!

2015 Relay Carnival
Sun, 7-12-2015
Another nicely run Relay Carnival.  Hats off to the folks at Sugarland Run.

Congratulations to the Penguins, Stingers, Villains, and (SF) Stingrays, who brought home the four trophies this year.

With no PVS LC meets scheduled, this figured to be a fast Relay Carnival.  It was.  Seven league records fell, most of them by several seconds, courtesy of six teams and twenty-six swimmers.  
Chinquapin was the first to strike, breaking the Boys 11-12 200Y Medley Relay record as Emil LaSida, Ronan Lauinger, William McClaury and Angel Callisaya combined for a time of 2:01.80, over three seconds under the mark they set earlier this season.  In the next event, the South Riding Stingrays' Abby Church, Kathryn Oakford, Jennifer Luong, and Abby Harrington sped to a time of 2:03.36 in the Girls 11-12 200Y Medley Relay, more than four seconds under the record set last summer.
In the Girls 13-14 200Y Medley Relay, Dana Korotovskikh, Jordan Wenner, Elise Nguyen and Natalie Smithers of Ashburn Village went 1:57.03, lowering a 6-year old record by nearly a second.   And it was the Burke Centre Penguins' Matthew Honnold, Luke Jones, Jacob Anglin and Michael Meister setting the new standard with a time of 1:40.05 in the Boys 15-18 200Y Medley Relay.

In the Mixed 9-10 200Y Freestyle Relay, Noah Ousley Naseman, Sarah Grace Rogers, Jack Kunkel and Claire Mowery of the Fort Myer Squids impressed with time of 2:04.61, well under the old mark of 2:07.62.  Next it was the Burke Centre Penguins, this time in the Mixed 15-18 200Y Freestyle Relay, where Carol Zangla, Livi Schmid, Matthew Honnold and Luke Jones churned to a time of 1:34.64.

And finally, in the Mixed Mixed 200Y Medley Relay, the Franklin Farm Froggers' John Shebat, McKenna Witlin, Abby Zindler and Chase Koller brought it home in 1:54.18 to close out the meet in style.

Congratulations to all -- Emil, Ronan, William, Angel, Abby, Kathryn, Jennifer, Abby, Dana, Jordan, Elise, Natalie, Matthew, Luke, Jacob, Micheal, Noah, Sarah Grace, Jack, Claire, Carol, Livi, John, McKenna, Abby and Chase!  Well done!

Week 3 Recap
Sun, 7-5-2015
After three weeks of swimming, the division races are starting to shape up.  In the Red Division, Franklin Farm and Ashburn Village will put their 3-0 records on the line in a head-to-head battle this Saturday.  Cascades is still very much in it at 2-1.  White Division leader Burke Centre Stingers take their perfect record to 3-0 Broadlands this Saturday in a critical meet.  The AKC Holy Mackerels sit at 2-1, and will host the Stingers on the final weekend.

With four Blue Division teams having two losses each, Franklin Glen and Chinquapin appear destined for a week 5 showdown to decide the crown.  And in the Gold Division, undefeated leaders Sequoia Farms and Chase Club will clash in week 5.  Barrington, at 2-1, faces Sequoia Farms this weekend and is by no means out of it.

A few more league records to announce.  Last Wednesday at Franklin Farm, the Froggers' John Shebat zipped to a time of 25.87 in the Boys 15-18 50M Backstroke, breaking the previous record of 26.47 set in 2012. 

Two more records fell during Saturday's meets.  At Sugarland Run, Countryside's Micaela Perezous' time of 16.64 in the Girls 8&Under 50Y Butterfly just nipped the 36-year old record of 16.65.  And at Ashburn Farm, Lexi Cuomo of ManorGate obliterated the 13-year old record of 29.79 in the Girls 13-14 50M Butterfly with a time of 28.84.

Well done and congratulations, Micaela, Lexi and John!

Week 2 Recap
Sun, 6-28-2015
Despite the wretched weather, our teams got in nine of the twelve meets yesterday, and two more took place this morning. 

And undaunted by the conditions, CSL swimmers set two league records at Saturday's meets.  In the Boys 15-18 50M Butterfly, John Shebat of Franklin Farm churned to a time of 26.05, bettering the old mark of 26.37 set in 2008 at the Red Divisional meet.  And in the Girls 13-14 200M Medley Relay, Dana Korotovskikh, Jordan Wenner, Elise Nguyen and Madison Gupton of Ashburn Village combined for a time of 2:10.66, lowering the mark of 2:11.77 set almost one year ago to the day at this same pool.

Congratulations, Dana, Jordan, Elise, Madison and John!  Well done!

Week 1 Recap
Mon, 6-22-2015
Home teams won ten out of twelve meets to open the 54th season of the Colonial Swimming League on a warm and humid Saturday.  (Good swimmer weather, bad parent weather)   One real close one yesterday, as Hayden Village won the final three relays but fell just short at Franklin Glen, 223-221.
There was one league record set Saturday.  At Chinquapin, the Wahoos' relay consisting of Emil Lasida, Ronan Lauinger, William McLaury, and Angel Callisaya sped to a time of 2:05.08 in the Boys 11-12 200Y Medley Relay, nearly three seconds faster than the previous mark set at Relay Carnival in 2012.
Congratulations, Emil, Ronan, William, and Angel!  Way to go!
