    Nationals success for RMST

    Monday, December 11th, 2017

    Reston Masters’ Dynamic Dozen return from the land of Vikings in triumph! The 2017 USMS LC National Championships at U of M in Minneapolis gave RMST many opportunities to shine – and we took them!

    After 49 swims and 9 relays RMST scored 317 points finishing 8th out of 170 teams. It was a terrific team experience where all of our swimmers made points and brought home medals. Our Honor Roll includes: Craig Baldwin, Kim Brightwell, Bill Chadsey, Lisa Groves, Mindy Johnson, Lucy Manheim, Nick Nobbe, Sterling Pilette, Jon Rysdon, Margie Shapiro, Larry Snowhite, Lynn Wymelenberg.
    Of particular note were our Women’s 200+ relays both of which placed 3rd among many Goliath teams. Congrats to Kim Brightwell, Lisa Groves, Mindy Johnson, Margie Shapiro. Our high-point scorer was Lucy Manheim with 45 points, Craig Baldwin shed the most time in our points grab, and our National Champion from the meet was Kim Brightwell who won the 50 Backstroke against a line-up of sharks. Take that, Mr. Phelps! Congratulations and thank you to all for bringing glory to RMST!
