National Champions Once Again!

Congratulations to everyone who participated in the One Hour Swim. You are a national champion! NEM won the national championship for the third year in a row! NEM won the women’s, men’s and combined categories again in 2014. We had 546 participants who swam a total of over 1.9 million yards. We had three individual national champions, twelve swimmers finish in the top three in their age group and 35 swimmers place in the top ten in their age group. Based on the preliminary results, it appears that NEM placed in the top three in 17 of the 21 total national championship relays and we had eight national champion relays. An incredible performance all around!

Many, many thanks to all of the coaches and swimmers who contributed to this year’s herculean effort. We could not have done it without you. You are National Champions for the third year in a row!
