2012 Bay Area Senior Games and 2013 National Senior Games Qualifier

Saturday, March 10, 2012
Avery Aquatic Center, Stanford University, CA

Chris, Kate, Bruce and NeilMVMers Diane Renshaw, Kate Latham, Neal Scott and Bruce Linn joined Coach Chris at the 2012 Bay Area Senior Games Swimming Competition, while Martha Seaver played Water Polo with the Menlo Mavens this past weekend.  In the Swimming, MVM swam 20 races, coming home with 6 Gold Medals, 4 Silvers and 5 Bronzes.  Coach Chris came away with 4 Golds and 1 Silver, Kate won 2 Golds and 2 Bronzes, Diane won 2 Silvers, Bruce won a Silver and a Bronze, and Neal won 2 Bronzes.  Kate picked up 3 new Team Records, while Bruce added another.

More importantly, this meet served as a qualifier for the 2013 National Senior Games, to be held in Cleveland.  Placing first, second, third or fourth in an event at a State Games, regardless of time, is an automatic qualifier for the National Games, where 6 events are allowed.  So 17 of 20 swims punched tickets to Cleveland.  Additionally, there are also qualifying time standards for those swims placing outside the top four.  As a bonus, if a swimmer makes a qualifying time in a particular race, he or she is also qualified for any shorter races in that particular stroke.  Kate has earned qualifying spots in all 3 Breaststroke races, all 4 Freestyle races, the 100 IM and the 50 Fly.  Neal is invited in the 50 and 100 Fly and the 50 Free.  Bruce is invited in the 50 and 100 Free, Diane is invited in the 50 and 100 Fly, and after Senior Games in California and Arizona, Chris has qualified in all 4 Freestyles, all 3 Backstrokes, both IMs and the 50 Fly.

And there are plenty more Senior Games left to go before the qualifying window closes.

Way to go, Team MVM!
