4 Terrapins swam with style and speed around Twin Lakes at the Rice Open water carnavel. Jackson Dement won the 15 18 year olds with incredible finish after going stroke for stroke for 2 miles!! Jimmy Gavin Grabbed 4th spot right behind the leaders breaking away from pack. Destiny Loesch and Jackson DeMoss got their first taste of the open water bug as they cruised to great finishes in the 11-12 age group in the 800. Camilia Samson made sure the swimmers counted correctly yelling out 1, then going to breakfast then 2, then lunch....
Open water swimming is not just going around in a big circle - there was fighting, clawing, positioning, kicking, going on for the entire race. Awesome to watch!
