LAKE TAHOE, Calif. (KFSN) -- A local 12-year-old became the youngest to swim across Lake Tahoe from east to west on Thursday, weeks after winning a special award.
"It went really good, I was expecting I to be a little colder but it was actually really warm," said James Savage, a Los Banos Native.
Savage swam a 10.5 mile stretch of the lake in 5 hours, 14 minutes and 59 seconds.
He's the youngest to swim the lake from east to west.
His eventually wants to swim Lake Tahoe south to north, a more than 20-mile stretch.
