Varsity swim beats Diamond Bar

Swim defeated Diamond Bar 370-294 in a rivalry meet on Wednesday, March 8 at home. For the first time in four years, varsity girls were able to defeat the Brahmas.

“Diamond Bar’s varsity girls team is really strong. [They] aren’t in our league, so we don’t normally face them. For me, [the rivalry] pushes me to work harder because this is one of the meets I want to do really well at [especially because it’s against Diamond Bar],” sophomore Katelyn Young said.  

Varsity boys lost to Diamond Bar, 63-107. Senior Matthew Huang led the team with a first place win in the 200 freestyle and second place in the 100 freestyle. However, the Brahmas swept the relays with three first-place wins in the 200 medley relay, 200 freestyle relay and 400 freestyle relay.

“This is one of the biggest meets we have, and there was a lot of excitement and nervousness around. The Diamond Bar guys are [predicted] to win the Division II championships. We still tried our best [against them], but we didn’t win,” Huang said.

Varsity girls defeated the Brahmas with a score of 102-68. Senior Emily Honng helped secure two wins in the 200 medley relay and the 400 freestyle relay. Honng also took first place in the 50 yard freestyle and second in the 100 yard breaststroke

“We did really well because everyone worked together and we all tried our best. We had good teamwork and good sportsmanship with Diamond Bar. Diamond Bar was a great competitor and we had good races. Personally, my times weren’t the best, but I think I had a good race against [them],” freshman Kelly Poon said.
