Nine Trumbull Pisces swimmers and three coaches will brave the Long Island Sound in this year’s Swim Across the Sound to benefit the St. Vincent’s Hospital Foundation on Saturday, Aug. 3. The primary purpose is to raise funds to help meet the financial needs of under-served people fighting cancer. The relay swim is a 15-mile journey from Port Jefferson, Long Island to Captain's Cove in Bridgeport.

Team Pisces Pride consists of William Crecca, Jacqueline Dale, Cameron Kosak, Julia Nevins and Elizabeth Stoelzel. They will be led by Pisces head coach Bill Strickland.

Team Pisces Strong consists of David Datz, Norah Hampford, Anna Haydostian and Rajkaran Padda, along with Trumbull Pisces coaches Chris Fracker and Colleen Carroll.

The two relay teams have begun their training and are working hard for this challenging event. In addition, each squad is working to raise $7,500 each for a total of $15,000 to benefit the cause.
