Flash Back Friday - The Annual Jersey Shore V Lock Haven Showdown

Several years of blogging have occurred at the Jersey Shore Swim blog with over 1000 stories and articles posted.  With that in mind, the Jersey Shore Swim blog will occasionally pull out an occasional favorite or interesting item from the archives to share with readers (plus some interesting old stuff never posted) in a series called Flashback Friday.

Every year, the Jersey Shore summer swim team meets up with their counterparts across Pine Creek.  In years past, the team was called the Mill Hall Muskrats but now go by the name Lock Haven Loggerheads.  Five years ago, Jersey Shore thumped their opponent 10-0.  Last night, the Loggerheads has the upper hand and cruised to a 9-1 win.

Flashback Friday – CalU Swim Camp


Several years of blogging have occurred at the Jersey Shore Swim blog with over 900 stories and articles posted.  With that in mind, the Jersey Shore Swim blog will occasionally pull out an occasional favorite or interesting item from the archives to share with readers (plus some interesting old stuff never posted) in a series called Flashback Friday.

It is almost the end of the school year in central Pennsylvania with summer temperatures already here.  The start of the summer swim season officially starts next week but some swimmers are already thinking of swim camp.  It is a chance to meet new friends and pick up some technique.  More importantly, it is a chance to get a break from mom and dad (or is it mom and dad get a break from the kids).

The PA Swimming site (here) has an excellent list of swim camps that are occurring in Pennsylvania.  Several swimmers from Jersey Shore and the Lock Haven area have been to many of these camps.

Flashback Friday takes a look at one of the camps at California University (PA) that a group of swimmers attended the past several years.

Jersey Shore High School Looking for New Swim Coach

Jersey Shore's head swim coach, Colt Coffman, is moving on to face another challenge this summer. He left behind a program that  is growing and more talent is in the pipeline.  This past year, two swimmers traveled to the PIAA State Meet (where one made the medal stand) and both are returning for several more years.

If interested in coaching this group of swimmers, go here for announcement and here for application.  Deadline is May 15.
