On Thursday, 11 brave Clippers traveled to Williamstown Lake not knowing if the weather would hold out for the first ever open water practice. Not only did it hold out but we actually caught some blue skies and a quick warm-up. The practice was a big hit and all the swimmers did a great job. We would like to thank Coach Joe and Coach Melissa for opening their lake house up to the team and allowing us to use their seadoo and kayaaks for the practice. Without them it wouldn't be possible. Thanks to Coach Marcie and Coach Melissa's sister, Monica, for being the master cook for the lunch after the swim. The goal is to have another practice next wednesday at 3:00pm at the lake. Remember you must be signed up for the Ohio Open Water Championships to participate.
