Sports: Bears Emerge Victorious Over Carlmont
Last Thursday, the Bears faced the Carlmont Scots at M-A’s home pool for their second PAL meet this season.The Bears stepped on the deck with confidence, and with an eagerness to dominate the competition. In the past, the Bears have had a decisive victory over Carlmont, and this year was no exception.
The Varsity girls had an overwhelming triumph, with seniors Kindle Van Linge, Maddie Point, and Nicole Zanoli breaking CCS times. Freshmen Faith Dunn and Sophie Murff also broke CSS times in the 200 free. With young talent, the ladies are confident and predicted to preform well for future meets, especially against big competitors Burlingame, set for early May.
On the Varsity boys team, junior Gordon Williams broke CCS cuts in the 200 IM and 100 fly, along with junior Zach Goland breaking CCS cuts in the 500 free and 100 fly. The boys team also has some young talent; Vincent Busque is one of the only sophomores to break CCS cuts in one of his strongest events, the 100 Backstroke. Although both the Varsity girls and boys have much time to improve these times throughout the coming season, this many CCS cuts so early in the season is remarkable.
The bears’ next meet is against Sequoia on April 3rd, at the Cherokee’s pool.
