Congratulations to KAW swimmer Ella Glaspie for her captivating win at the Central Zone Open Water Championships! Ella represented Team Michigan at this regional championship meet. Twenty-nine total swimmers competed in the 11-12 one mile age group event from the various 15 states that comprise the Central Zone.
Open water swimming takes place in outdoor bodies of water such as open oceans, lakes, and rivers. The 2016 Central Zone Open Water Championships took place on Lake Andrea in Pleasant Prairie Wisconsin. Ella had to overcome unique challenges to bring home the gold. There are no lane lines, walls, or starting blocks. Since the competition takes place outdoors, nature’s elements play a role in deciding the winner.
Again, congratulations Ella on a terrific performance!
Way to go Kingfish!
