Nine-year-old Jordan Freer succeeded in her swim from Alcatraz to San Francisco on Memorial Day.
The third-grader from Lotus in El Dorado County is one of the youngest people to make the swim. Her father, Tom, who swam with his daughter, said all went well.
"Tough conditions but they were met with determination," he said of his daughter, who swam with several hundred adults in the 1.5-mile organized swim.
Jordan has been on a swim team since she was 4.
Jordan's swim was a fundraiser for Nothing But Nets, which distributes insecticide-treated nets to families throughout Africa.
