Lock Haven Wins GSVAL Swim Title



The Lock Haven Loggerhead’s coach, Jim Merinar, had set out a few goals for the team at the onset of the summer swim season.  The first goal was to go undefeated during the dual meet season.  This was somewhat accomplished as they didn’t lose any meets but did tie Mifflinburg to go 6-0-1. 
The second major objective was to win the 13-team Greater Susquehanna Valley Aquatic League Championship Meet.  A tall task considering they fell 223 points short of beating powerhouse Lewisburg last year.  It was an even taller task when you consider Lock Haven area has not won a summer title in over three decades (last title was in 1983). 
This goal was met as Lock Haven won the team league title by 515 points over Lewisburg (total team score here) .  Along the way they also captured 5 of the 10 age group titles (age group scores can be viewed here) and won both the girls and boys overall team scores (those can be viewed here).
Jersey Shore finished 6th overall with the girls taking 8th and the boys finishing 5th. 
Full results for the 8-and-unders and the 10-and-unders can be found here, 12-and-unders here, and the 14-and-unders and 15-and-over here.

Flashback Friday - Can Jersey Shore Return to Top Form Tomorrow

Several years of blogging have occurred at the Jersey Shore Swim blog with over 1000 stories and articles posted.  With that in mind, the Jersey Shore Swim blog will occasionally pull out an occasional favorite or interesting item from the archives to share with readers (plus some interesting old stuff never posted) in a series called Flashback Friday.

The Jersey Shore Summer Swim Team had an impressive run of championships when they won the Bald Eagle Swim League titles from 2006-2009.  Below is a newspaper clipping detailing their 2009 accomplishment.  Full results of that meet can be found here.  The league's championships (now the Greater Susquehanna Valley Aquatic League) are tomorrow.
