We had yet another fantastic showing at the Del Valle 2x1 Open Water Relay on August 20th! Event veterans and newcomers all took on the 1+ mile course on a gloriously sunny morning. Our own JR DeSouza (lane 8) teamed up with SCSC super-star Lisa Hazen to finish 1st overall! Other highlights were Martha Branch (lane 6) and Gayle Blumenfeld (lane 6) swimming a great relay, Sophia Loh (lane 1) swimming her first-ever open water swim with now veteran Jason Salmanoff (lane 2), Adina Kletter (lane 5) showing Lynn Freeman (lane 5) the ropes, and the Coaching Duo Chris Campbell and Bob Stenz kicking butt.
After the race, the swimmers devoured the coach-provided buckle in true MVM style. With so many coaches on hand, there was a special raspberry buckle along with the traditional blueberry treat. Delicious, if not completely nutritious! Congratulations to all our swimmers!
