2017 Water Daze Results

The 15th annual Water Daze swim across the bay was a success. Despite some smoke in the air and choppy water, 39 swimmers completed the 1 mile swim. In the beginning years, local participation level was less than 30%. Now it has climbed t0 over 50%, thanks to the aquatic center and growing swim team member contingent (which made up 25% of the field this year!)

First place went to local 17 year old Landon Shipley, with a time of 25.07. The top female finisher, from Missoula, was Lisa Chewning with a time of 31.28. Isabel Seeley and Sami Dolberry were our youngest participants, age 11 and both from Polson. Bernd Albrecht was the final champion, age 75 and also from Polson.

Special thanks to this year’s sponsors: St. Luke Healthcare, Red Lion Inn, Providence St. Joseph Medical Center, Total Screen Design, Anderson Broadcasting, Windauer Family Dentistry & Finley Point Orchard Management, and Polson Ambulance.
