Swimmer in Echo

Members of the Sandhill Sandsharks Swim Team will be swimming in Seven Lakes North's Lake Echo on Saturday, May 24 from 7:30 am to 10:00 am.

Among the swimmers expected at Saturday's swim are Olympian Alex Meyer and world champions Ashley Twichell and Chloe Sutton.

It's the second day of the team's annual Shark-A-Thon, which raises money for training equipment, awards, a banquet, and pool rental. The team will be swimming at the O'Neal Pool on Friday, May 23 from 4:15 pm to 7:30 pm.

Saturday's swim at Echo also serves as practice for the NC Open Water Swim Championships, which will be held at Lake Echo on June 6 & 7.

Folks who would like to support the team can make a flat donation or donate based on the distance covered by a particular swimmer.
