Tommy Mintz wins 2013 X-TREME!
I've been so busy preparing for Take the Lake next weekend that I haven't had a chance to revel in the success of the X-TREME! Saturday.
Looks like we had 21 swimmers finish! One of our teams (Team Whitaker) had to cancel at the last minute, so we had five teams all gang-start at 8 a.m. (after their swimmers started at 6 a.m.)
We had 17 solo racers finish, (including two the week before). A few others had to drop out of the swim because they couldn't get escorts, and one bailed out on the run because of joint issues.
Tommy Mintz of Ash took home the solo winner's banner (for the third year!,) finishing in 10:23:09, and Old Chub cleaned the Team house with a time of 7:51:49, grabbing the treasured Red Shoe Award.
We're (also) very proud of Samantha Lane, who in 2008 had earned the Jenny Stocks Youngest Swimmer Award, and who last year did the Grand Slam of all four Take the Lake PECs. On Saturday, the 15-year-old completed the X-TREME! becoming our youngest X-TREME!ist ever. Go Samantha!
Watch Samantha's video interview about her Grand Slam.
I have some photos and more details as soon as I can get back to this. We all have a big weekend ahead!
