2018 NCSAs: Stadden and Madej Win High Point, NCAP Dominates Team Race


Nation’s Capital Swim Club won the men’s and women’s team scoring (and thus, the combined team title), while Isabelle Stadden of the Aquajets and David Madej of SwimUnited took the girls’ and boys’ individual high points awards, respectively.


NCAP dominated on both the boys’ and girls’ sides of the meets– the club was the only team to score over 1,000 points on both sides. They amassed 1,229 points on the girls’ side, more than 300 points ahead of Aquajets (867.50) and Marlins of Raleigh (820), while totaling 1,159 points on the boys’ side, well ahead of Academy Bullets (753) and New Trier Aquatics (458).

It’s not quite fair to say NCAP is “dominating” as it is MANY times bigger any other club, so there was no suspense who would finish first. The second & third places were determined in the last event (400MR). Aquajets girls finished 1st and 8th to secure the silver.
