On Saturday, March 18, Club Tribe (1693) and the College of William & Mary Swim Team hosted the 2nd Annual Club Tribe Masters Classic in Williamsburg.  104 Swimmers representing 15 clubs combined for a spirited afternoon of racing.  Club Tribe is grateful to all who participated, officiated, volunteered and otherwise supported this meet.  A special thanks to Heather Stevenson and Jill Bradford for running the main table, Charlie Cockrell for securing and organizing our outstanding officials, and William & Mary Coach Matt Crispino, his staff and swimmers for a massive volunteer effort.

Seven Virginia LMSC records were set in individual events:  Miriam Tuovila (TMAS), 90-94 W 100 Breast (3:16.01);  Kristen Harris (1693), 40-44 W 50 Breast (32.65) and 100 Breast (1:11.18); Marina Falcone (1693), 25-29 W 200 Free (1:54.67); Randolph Wise (VMST), 75-79 M 50 Fly (35.38) and 100 IM (1:26.84); and Sidney Glass (1693), 25-29 M 50 Back (23.74).  In addition, the 35+ Women of Club Tribe (Kristen Harris, Michele Choe, Courtney Hurtubise and Katie Grier) established a new Virginia LMSC record in the 200 Free Relay (1:44.79).  Congratulations on these impressive swims!

We’re thrilled that we had nearly 30 relays on the blocks between the 200 Free Relay and our meet’s unique event – the 100 Medley Relay.  In perhaps the most exciting race of the day, TIDE Swimming’s 25+ Mixed 200 Free Relay of Dana MacCorquodale, Joell Christodonte, Melvin Cabebe and Ian King (1:57.24) out-touched a strong 45+ team from VMST (Cheryl Benn, Nancy Speer, Mitch Saks and Bill Throne (1:57.78)).

The splash-n-dash 100 Medley Relay saw some great racing across the board, with Club Tribe sweeping the Women’s (54.50), Men’s (49.45) and Mixed (51.24) events – the latter two in meet record time.  There was plenty of good competition in this relay, including a notable 54.08 from a SWIMNERD Men’s team averaging just under 46 years of age (Sam Harris, Nathan Tschohl, Gregor McLeod and Robert Radam).

We look forward to hosting this event next year, and to seeing our LMSC shine at the Colonies Zone meet in a few weeks.

Results will be posted here and at vaswim.org once they go final.
