Local finals a big success for locals.
Last April, the City of Santa Clarita’s Santa Clarita Aquatic Center hosted the 2007 Southern Pacific Master Association Short Course Yards Finals Swim Meet, which featured the Santa Clarita Masters Swim Club.
The Santa Clarita Masters Swim Club (SCMC), which began in 2003, had its most successful competition ever, finishing third overall with 760 points.
A total of 29 teams from Southern California competed in the three day event. Teams included: the cities of Mission Viejo, Long Beach, San Diego, Santa Maria, and Las Vegas.
The SCMC team members include: Jeff Beck, Dan Bennett, Bethann Brody, Davey Burnett, Correna Davidson, Cheri Ellington, Albert Giacomazzi, Lenny Grim, Christine Hall, Patrick Hartman, Serena Lovingood, Cindy Marnoch, Bob McMeekin, Carolynne Mendell, Todd Morse, Lance O'Keefe, Brian Roney, Dorab Sethna, Bob Shepler, Lisa Valenti, Kelly Valentine, Kerry Valentine and Mike Velasquez.
Swimming, which is one of the most popular forms of aerobic exercise, is a great exercise for people of all ages, because pool workouts provide low-impact resistance, lessening strain on the body.
Adults 18 years old and over, who are interested in a serious workout along with the optional opportunity to compete in regional U.S. Masters Swim Meets, can enjoy coached swim workouts at the Sports Complex Aquatic Center. Practices are designed for both novice and experienced swimmers.
