RSTA Week 5: New Face at Top of Standings

With only two meets left in the season, the mid-season team standings look a little different than they have in recent years for the Reston Swim Team Association.

The Ridge Heights Sharks are 4-0 and stand on top of the standing, above perennial powerhouses Lake Newport (3-0) and Lake Audubon (3-1).

“It looks like we may have a new champion this year, or at least a new co-champion since Ridge Heights doesn’t swim Lake Newport, which could also go undefeated,” says league president Lyn Cordts. “It has been fun to watch the competitiveness of the teams this year. Many of the meets have been too close to call by the mixed age relays at the end.”
