Congratulations to the six Dad’s Club swimmers who participated at this year’s Gulf Open Water Championships. The meet was held at Twin Lakes in Manvel, TX on Sunday Oct. 5th. 

This was Grace De Jong’s first open water competition. De Jong placed 41st in the 11-12 800 distance.

Wednesday Hunter, Jamie Morgan, Roxana Nolte and Savannah Skeele competed in the 1 mile race.

All 4 Dad’s Club ladies placed inside the top 8 in the event.
  • Jamie Morgan 2nd
  • Roxana Nolte 6th
  • Wednesday Hunter 7th
  • Savannah Skeele 8th

Riley Carson participated in the 800 and 2 mile races of the 15 & Over division. He placed 2nd in both races. The difference between 2nd and 3rd place came down to a very exciting finish with only 0.35 seconds of separation.

Morgan’s and Carson’s 2nd place finishes earned them a spot in the Gulf All Star Open Water team. The team will be traveling to Fort Myers, FL on April 24-26th for the 13th annual Open Water Festival.
