The boys and girls swim and dive teams had their first home meet on Sept. 1 against Olympic Heights Community High School. Both girls and boys teams won and now have have a record of 4-5. Their next meet will take place Sept. 7 at Santaluces Community High School.

“So far we have had a really good start to the season,” math teacher and swim coach Rachelle Lowen said. “We have won four times and lost [once], which is good. We have started off strong because a lot of our swimmers are coming in with experience [while other] students are new to the team.”
