Swim Records, Events & Daily Grind Stuff!

Congratulations to Jimbo Cottam and Steve Bradshaw as they raced in the North Carolina Masters SCY (short course yards) Championships last weekend in Cary, North Carolina.

Strong swims for both aging men with Steve crushing an age-group state record in the 100-yard Back, 55:67 and crushing his hand with a furious finish in his 100 IM!    See all results here.

If you are looking for something fun to do Saturday night, our practice peer Kathy Ramirez is performing at a storytelling event, take a look at the flyer here:


And lastly, a few more  workouts that have accumulated in the written form:

Buoys are IN at Biltmore / Enka Lake!

The buoys are IN at Biltmore Lake on Enka Lake!  A gorgeous day to set them, too.

77F air, sunny/ breezy with 58F water, Bill B. looked  long and smooth as he swam about 4 loops of 400 yards each, and I stood on the paddle board  as we set the weights and buoys at each spot.

What a beautiful day on the lake!  Course is triangle and approximately 400yards around.  We will remeasure and adjust as necessary-or not at all🐠

More news about regularly scheduled time at the lake very soon.
