    Real Distance Swimming


    Reeven Nathan, older brother of Levy, completed the 21 mile English Cannel swim early this morning. Reeven left Dover and came ashore in France 16 hours and 4 minutes after taking to the sea.

    Levy is scheduled to hit the waves sometime this week. Start times in the Channel depend on tides, wave height, and water temperature ... we will update the website with info about Levy's swim as it comes in.

    First Timers Were Great and A New Record

    LFSC Distance Duck Meet

    Congratulations to all of our swimmers on their efforts and success at the Distance Duck Meet. We had 6 first-timers in the 1500, 100% Best Times in the 400 and 89% Best Times in the 1500.

    Meet Landing Page

    Live Results Online

    Colin Kingsley broke his own Distance Duck record in the 1500 with a time of 17:40.90. That time is also under his Illinois State Record but is an un-official record as the meet was not a sanctioned event.

    Big Drop Awards (greatest time drop) go to Isabella Piatek and Colin Kingsley in the 1500, Cassidy Meyer and Clayton Reich in the 400. Be sure to pick up your award in practice.

    First Timer 1500 recognition goes out to Connor Boyle, Abby Reich, Dylan Walsh, Ben Longeway, Win Thuente and Katie Meier. And ... Audrey Zimmerman, Aliah Levinson and Cassidy Meyer each posted times in the 400 that make them eligible for the 1500 free next December!

    Congratulations to all!

    New LFSC and Illinois Records Set at the Distance Duck Meet!


    Congratulations to everyone who participated in the Distance Duck Meet last Staurday. Every swimmer recorded a new Best Time with huge time drops from the veterans. And a special THANK YOU to our meet officials Steve Good, Kate Good, Pete Reich and Eric Meier, and all volunteer timers for the event.

    Clap your hands for Colin Kingsley for his new LFSC Distance Duck record in the 11/12 Boys 1500. His time (17:41.99) was also an Illinois State and Open Age Group Record. Mary Grace King joined the record rush with a new 10&under Girls Illinois State and Open Record of 20:25.84. She just missed the Distance Duck record set by Rachel Stoehr in 2004 (20:24.56) in an un-sanctioned vent.

    "The Big Drop Award", given to swimmers who achieve the greatest time improvement, went to George Bentley and Anna Gates (1500 free), and to Thomas Holecek and Cassidy Meyer (400 free).

    The next Distance Duck Meet is set for mid-June, dates and details TBA. Check the links below for more information and results.
