KING CITY — King City High swim team had meets recently at Gilroy and Seaside high schools. While they were non-scoring meets, the Mustang swimmers still strived for top marks.
“All our swimmers have worked hard this season,” said King City coach Cheryl Hill. “They are bringing in personal bests. Our girls only have four swimmers and two of them are brand new to the team but are holding their own.”
Swimmers and their races and time from Gilroy were: Dylan Wheeler, 50 free (29.82) and 100 free (1:07.51); Max Morales, 100 free (1:04); Julian Alatorre, 50 free (29.89) and 100 back (1:37.53); Rachel Stuercke, 100 breast (1:33.28); and Aubree Taylor, 50 free (37.74).
“On May 14 the Mustangs swam at Seaside High School and it was quite cold,” Hill said. “The kids turned out some great swims anyways.”
At Seaside, the boys results were: Austin Short, 50 free (27.20) and 200 free (2:20.37); Jose Aguilar, 100 breast (1:29.24); and Josh Jimenez, 100 free (1:08.32). In the girls races, Samantha Clavijo bettered her time in the 100 free, with a time of 35.59, and Ashley Torres fearlessly swam the 100 fly with a time of 1:51.53, giving her a new personal best.
On May 20, the Mustang swimmers will host Marina High School at the King City Recreation Department pool facility.
“The swimming will start at 3:30,” Hill said. “Come join us to watch these strong and skillful swimmers.”
