Longreach Swim Club swimmers turn in strong efforts at national meet

Members of the Longreach Swim Club of the Bath YMCA continued the team’s tradition of competitive racing at national meets with impressive performances at the YMCA Long Course Nationals on July 31 to Aug. 4 in Greensboro, North Carolina.

“It really came together well,” LRSC coach Jay Morissette said.

LRSC scored 48 points and finished 29th in the team standings. New Jersey’s Somerset County YMCA won the team competition. Individually, Morissette’s swimmers scored in numerous events highlighted by outstanding backstroke races from 15-year-old Olivia Harper.

Harper finished fifth in the 50-meter backstroke (30.2 seconds) and fifth in the 100-meter back (1:04.1). Harper’s 100 backstroke time missed the standard for the Olympic Trials by seven-tenths of a second. However, Morissette acknowledged qualifying for the 2020 Trials has become a goal for the young swimmer as she further develops as a backstroker and competes at national qualifying meets.
