RMSC Holiday Invitational: Quick Wrap Up

By Reach for the Wall staff.

The Rockville-Montgomery Swim Club (RMSC) held its annual Holiday Invitational meet at the Germantown Indoor Swim Center this past weekend.  A total of 15 teams participated in the event, but the meet was not team-scored.

Caitlin Horning, a 10 year old scorcher from Delaware, set new PVS Open records in:

  • 10 & under 100 backstroke (1:00.99), beating the previous record of Kate Riefenstahl from 2001; and
  • 10 & under 100 butterfly (1:01.19) by beating Janet Hu’s best time in 2006.

Readers may recall that Horning also set 3 National Age Group (NAG) meet records at the 2016 PV National Age Group Team Challenge that RMSC hosted a month and a half ago.

All PVS swimmer (and some outside PVS) results can be found in Meet Results  on our site.

    The article said that the meet was not team-scored. However, the team relays were scored (1st place -48 points; 2nd place 42 points; 3rd place 40 points…). Thus, the team relays score system is probably unnecessary if the meet was not team-scored. Also based on the meet advertisement there were no high-point competition or high-point winners in each age group at the meet.
