Nicolet to hold fundraising "swim-a-long" this week

Dec. 5, 2010

According to a repairman, the Nicolet High School pool scoreboard "is living on borrowed time".

So, in order to start the process of getting a new scoreboard and timing system, Knight coach Dwight Davis and members of the boys and girls swim teams as well as the Bananas age group squad will hold a "swim-a-long" fundraiser this Thursday and Saturday.

The "swim-a-long" participants will seek out pledges for each lap they swim. It will run from 5-7 p.m. Thursday and from 8 a.m.-noon on Saturday.

The current timing system is currently 21 years old and Davis said that he was told that scoreboard and timing systems are designed to last about 15 years maybe 18 at the best.

Davis said the "swim-a-long" is just the start of the process, as he will also seek out corporate naming rights. The entire cost of a new system is estimated at anywhere between $27,000 and $45,000, he said.

People wishing to pledge can contact the individual swimmers or call Davis at school (414) 351-8149
