The contingent had good represntation from the groups. Matthew MacDonald, Michael Edmunds, Ariana Flory, Emilie Golinowski, Alan Piatek, Coach Ali Allen. Erin Flory, Scott MacDonald and Kristian MacDonald also made the plunge.
The group raced well. Matthew MacDonald was first out of the water with a time of 26 minutes. Edmunds was next with 27 minutes. Erin, Arianna, Kristian were all 39 minutes. Alan clocked 40 minutes, Ali and Emily finished at the 41 minute mark. Scott made sure everyone was safely out and finished with 44 minutes!
Congratulations to our Open Water group!
