Nearly 200 swimmers to fill Community Center pool for April Invite

The Lincoln City Swim Club (LCSC) will host its annual April Invitational Friday through Sunday with nearly 200 swimmers from 10 teams occupying the Community Center pool.

Bend, Capital Swimming (Salem), Gold Coast (North Bend), South Coast (Coos Bay), Nehalem, Newport, Tillamook and Portland Aquatic Club will join 25 LCSC members as 185 swimmers compete.

“We’re looking forward to a fun weekend,” LCSC coach Lissa Parker said.

“This meet is for the younger kids, so we will have swimmers like Daisy Cobos, Abby Halferty and Heidi Moreno doing the 8-and-under events,” she said. “A lot of siblings -the three Evenson brothers TJ, Ryuma and Mugen, the Serrato’s – Isabelle and Noah, Logan and Napy Meyer, Brandon and Dylan Murphy.

“A few older ones like Jose Luis Cortes, Dylan Barrera and Lesley Lagunes. Charlotte Lunstedt will participate, but she is doing softball right now, Hunter Lunstedt is working lots after school, but he will do some short races.

“A lot of the older kids who are doing high school spring sports are coming to either help or do a relay or a short event.”

The meet will start with some of the longer events set for Friday evening and will continue Saturday beginning at 9:30 a.m. and Sunday at 9 a.m. Raffles, T-shirt sales and concessions are planned.
