Rocky Mount, Va. (December 12, 2018) – The Franklin County Family YMCA Riptide Swim Team hosted its annual invitational swim meet, the Splash Between the Lakes, this past Saturday 12/8/18. This year’s event was themed “The Race for the Golden Duck.” Over 200 swimmers from Y’s across the region including Alleghany, Altavista, Bedford, Danville, Roanoke, South Boston, South Side Farmville, Pulaski and Martinsville.

Competition was fierce to win the coveted “Golden Duck” first place team trophy. Individual swimmers won themed rubber ducks for victory in their respective races. Franklin County rose to the challenge and posted some of their best swim times winning enough points to bring home the “Golden Duck.”

“It was great to see our swimmers’ hard work paying off this weekend. Not only did they swim exceptionally well, they also stepped up as leaders and team mates,” says JT Boyd the Riptide’s Head Coach.

Boyd goes on to say “We would like to thank the members of the National Honor Society and the members of the FCHS swim team that came out and volunteered as timers for the meet. It wouldn’t have been possible without our parents, swimmers and volunteers!”
