LHY'S 2016 NATIONAL TEAM
We are proud to present our 2016 National Team - LHY returns to the National Competition with an impressive field of 27 qualifiers! Follow our swimmers' progress at the Championship meet as we post results of the competition and time trials below.
Our program's focus has always been on "personal bests." This year more than ever we're not focused on points because it's a young team so we don't expect to be scoring as we have been in the past but this field of swimmers bodes a bright future for LHY Swimming!
How the meet works!
In order to earn a place on the National Swim Team a swimmer must first swim the “qualifying time” or better, for a particular event, at one of several designated major meets during the swim season. (swimmers can also re-qualify for next year’s competition by posting a qualifying time at this year’s competition)
The top sixteen compete for points in the evening session, with the top 8 swimming in the “ A Finals” and 9-16 swimming in “the B Consolation Final”. There is also a "C Consolation Final for which no points are awarded. Relays have only an A and B Final. Because of their distance, the 1000 & 1650 Freestyle events have no preliminary swims. The top 8 seeded times automatically swim in the finals.
