Preview: Swim competes at Winterfest Invitational

Swim will compete in its first invitational of the school year Friday, March 13 and Saturday, March 14 at the Mount San Antonio College (Mt. SAC) Winterfest Invitational.

Varsity will compete in its preliminaries Friday afternoon with the top 27 swimmers from each event returning to compete in finals Saturday afternoon. Junior varsity will compete Saturday morning for its finals. In preparation for the invitational, swim has followed its daily practice schedule, focusing more on stroke formation to improve times.

“I don’t think I am in my very best condition. I am nervous because I know that there are going to be a lot of new, fast swimmers. But, I am excited to hang out with my school teammates and to see other [swimmers] from different schools,” senior Madelyn Chiu said.

Swim’s last invitational of the season for the Spring Meet of Champions Friday, April 10 and Saturday, April 11 will also be held at Mt. SAC.
