New England Short Course Meters Championships- December 8-10, 2017 – Calling All CONN Swimmers

The New England Short Course Meters Championships will be held again in Worcester, Mass on December 8-10, 2017.  This is the first-class team event for CONN Masters where every point an individual swimmer earns adds to the team total, as well as relay points.  Last year Connecticut had a fantastic showing coming in second place in the medium team category, losing to Rhode Island by only 29 points, and finished fifth overall among all teams with a total of 2,276 points.

2017 is our year to move up in the standings.  Every CONN swimmer counts, and all swimmers who attend are urged to join our relays, which are very important to team scores.  Also, last year many of the relays earned national top ten honors.

Connecticut had 29 swimmers last year.  The race organizers have challenged us to bring at least 35, moving us into the large team category and making us eligible for a raffle to win a team pizza party on Saturday night.  We’d like to see even more entrants, and win not just the pizza party, but a top three overall standing.

It is a fantastic facility, a very well run meet, and easy to get to.  Come on everybody!  Registration will open on October 1, 2017.
