On Saturday, Jan. 27, the Bradford County Dairy Princess, Jenna Harnish, visited a YMCA swim meet at Decker Pool on the Campus of Mansfield University. Jenna was sponsored by Turks Dairy Products of Columbia Cross Roads and promoted the benefits of dairy products to 130 competing swimmers from age six to 18.
Jenna passed out free milk and cheese sticks to many of the athletes to help power them through their competition.
Competing against each other were swimmers from the East Lycoming YMCA team and the Jersey Shore YMCA team.
Jersey Shore has a unique arrangement as the swimmers come together from two distinct areas – Jersey Shore area swimmers and Jersey Shore North area (Wellsboro, Mansfield, Tioga and Troy) swimmers who compete together as one YMCA swim team.
The event concluded after the final race with an age group score of Jersey Shore 8 and East Lycoming 2.
This swimming event for area youth was made possible with support from Mansfield University.
