The sound of splashing and team cheering will be ever-present in the Rancho San Miguel neighborhood Saturday.
The Rancho San Miguel Swim Club is hosting (a revival of) its 32nd annual Relay Invitational. This event was held for more than 30 years in the 1960s through the 1990s, and is being brought back, bringing with it fond memories for many coaches and parents in Walnut Creek who swam at the RSM Relays as children, stated team Treasurer Ann McFarland in an email.
Six teams will be competing in Walnut Creek’s only all-relay swim competition. Every event is a team event, from the traditional medley relay and freestyle relay, to the unusual breaststroke and butterfly relays. The meet is topped off by the progressive relay, where six girls and six boys (one from each age group) form a team of 12.
recently celebrated its 50th anniversary.
