TEDDY BLAKE ROCKS!
The lead picture on our website today is NLAC's Teddy Blake at the start of this past weekend's Eastern Zone Open Water 2k race in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Fresh off a stellar performance at Zones in Richmond, Virginia, Teddy finished 5th out of 18 participants in the 2k race, and was the highest finishing 12 year old or under in the race.
NLAC has a strong history in this race, and other open water races. NLAC swimmers won the 5k race in 2015 and 2016 (one of the other pictures on the home pageis the finish of the 5k race in 2016), and several other NLAC swimmers finished in the top 10. There are several good open water races within a few hour drive. If you are interested in participating, or just want to learn more, speak with Coach Katie (herself an open water swimmer), Stephanie Blake, or me.
