DANSVILLE – Swimmers from Dansville and Wayland Cohocton are jumping at an opportunity to show their support for the up and coming Myers Cancer Center in the best way they know, by taking to the water.
According to a press release from UR Medicine Noyes Health, girls varsity swimmers from Dansville High School and Wayland Cohocton High School toured the under-construction Ann and Carl Myers Cancer Center on Aug. 23 and will compete with more than 200 varsity swimmers from across the region in the first ever ‘Duel in the Pool’ on Saturday, Sept. 24.
The girls will go to the Bath-Haverling Aquatics Complex starting at 10:30 a.m. The cross-conference meet, organized by Dansville High School swimming coach Jim Welch and his wife Natalie, will pit Livingston County Conference swimmers as one team against rivals from the Finger Lakes League.
The $5 admission fee, as well as proceeds from t-shirt sales, a 50/50 raffle and pool games will benefit the Cancer Center.
