Area swimmers raise funds for scholarship at 'Swim For Him' eve

by Rob Peirce

SPORTS WRITER

Two local swim teams recently got together for an event and to remember a friend. They tab the results a success.

The Clarksburg Country Club and Stealey swim teams met on May 26 in the Stealey pool for a swimathon called "Swim For Him," in remembrance of Chris Sprenger, a local swimmer who died at a meet three years ago.

They raised $1,100 and counting for the Chris Sprenger Scholarship and educated the participants about Long QT, the disease Sprenger was suspected to have, in the process.

"There are a lot of kids who die from this every year," CCC coach Lou Nardelli said. His sister, Natalie Nardelli, coaches the Stealey team. "It kind of gets overlooked."

This is the first "Swim For Him" event, and Lou hopes to make it an annual event.

"We want to do it ongoing with Robert C. Byrd (High School)," he said.

Sprenger was an excellent swimmer, Lou said, and this is a proper way to remember him.

"Chris was a great kid," he said. "We thought about getting in the water and swimming and talking about remembering him."

n YMCA 5K: D.J. Navarini and Emily Moore won the boys and girls 19-and-under age groups, respectively, at the WLR 5K Race at the Harrison County YMCA on Saturday.

Other male winners were J.R. Luyster (20-29), Larry Cann (30-39), Joe Leroy (40-49), James Mihalik (50-59) and Bob Stemple (60-over).

Female winners were Kammy Woodward (20-29), Kelly Pinti (30-39), Carol Davis (40-49) and Judy Thompson (50-59).
