Natalie Handzlik (13), Sophie Pellegrino (11), Zach Baril (15) and Jack Pellegrino (17) competed in the 2018 Crippen Sunset Mile at Miromar Lake in Fort Myers Saturday. (4/14). In her first open water event, Natalie posted a time of 20:24.07, and Sophie completed her first open water mile in 27:50.00. On the boy’s side, Zach reached the finish line in 19:01.20, and Jack scrambled out of the water with a time of 17:33.00.
In all, sixty men, and seventy women participated in the event which had the swimmers start in the lake, swim the mile long course around the lake, and finish by getting out of the water, and crossing the finish line on the beach. It was a beautiful day for the event, and our swimmers expressed an interest in doing it again next year. Great job swimmers!
