Through the cold and rain, the Menlo-Atherton High School Bears triumphed over the Scots on Mar. 7, 2013, starting off the season in a way Carlmont would have liked to avoid.

Both Carlmont junior varsity teams lost  by a large point margin, along with the varsity girls team.

Sophomore Elizabeth Staton said, “We got creamed by Menlo-Atherton. We only one like one or two events.”

M-A is always a competitive team in swimming, and often hard to beat, which is a likely reason for the loss.

“M-A is just really good, so I’m not necessarily shocked that we lost,” commented Staton.

Last year when Carlmont swam against M-A, the Bears were disqualified for cheating, but this year, they came back and showed Carlmont that they are a tough team.

Varsity boys swimmer and current sophomore Noa Gracia-Brown stated, “I think we did fairly well but some swimmers were just way over the top. I remember I was swimming a 50 freestyle and I was going pretty hard, but there were still some people half a body length ahead of me.”

This was a common feeling for many of the Carlmont swimmers, apart from the boys 100 breaststroke, which Carlmont varsity won first, second, and third place in.

The varsity boys team was the only Carlmont swim team to win the meet, by 20 team points.

The Scots hope for a better meet, when they face the Terra Nova Tigers in Pacifica on Mar. 14, 2013.
