The Sports & Activities Club and Recreation Department’s 39th Annual Lake Swim was held on Saturday, July 6 starting at Park 4 and finishing at our Main Beach. The swim start was open water at the end of Park 4 guest dock.  We had 90 registered swimmers and 87 competed. The youngest swimmer was 7 years old and the oldest was 70. Nick Elliott finished first with a time of 19:28.

For the first time in 39 years, our lake was Red Flagged for the safety of the athletes.  Our water support consisted of at least fifty kayakers and paddle-boarders, six pontoon boats and our own Public Safety.

Mark Lichtle and Emil Caruso were shooting Drone stills and video of the swim, so check out the highlights on our website at lopsac.com.

Our special Ann Marie Friedrich award of $50 was awarded to the youngest male (nine-year old Ryan Anthony) and female (seven-year old Elizabeth Anthony) swimmers in the unaided division.  Plan on joining us next year, for our 40th Annual Lake Swim.

Jim Nachtigal would like to thank his co-organizer, Kelly Nichols, for her endless support in making this year’s event a huge success.
