South Holston Lake Crossed For The First Time

Michael Stresemann (51) of Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina, John Crompton (59) of Charleston, South Carolina, John Buechler (44) of Annandale, Virginia, and Joe Rainero (46) of Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina set out to do something unprecedented.

This past weekend, they completed a 17.43-mile relay across South Holston Lake from Caleb’s Cove in Virginia to Riddle Creek in Tennessee in 7 hours 54 minutes.

The men rotated turns in the water, swimming 45 minute legs, then 30 minute legs and finally 20 minute legs toward the end of the relay.
