Approximately 230 athletes from throughout Oregon have converged in the Community Center pool this weekend for the Lincoln City Swim Club’s annual April Invitational.
Competition, open to the public with concessions and raffles, were held in the 200- and 400-meter races Friday night, and will resume at 10 a.m. Saturday in the sprints and 9:30 a.m. Sunday. The event will conclude at approximately 1:30 p.m. each day.
Twenty-three members of the Lincoln City Swim Club (LCSC) swam Friday night in various 200-meter, short-course age-group events, including 7-year-old Daisy Cobos for the first time.
“It’s a kickoff for the summer season since we swim short-course meters and a lot of families love to come down to the beach,” LCSC coach Lissa Parker said.
