Carlmont’s swim team faced off against Aragon High School on April 26, in their  last meet of the season before Peninsula Athletic League finals.

Aragon, ranked fourth in the league, was thought to be one of the better teams that the Scots rivaled but Carlmont pulled through in most divisions coming out on top.

“They were a good team,” said junior varsity swimmer Hannah Carney, “especially their varsity boys, but our frosh-soph team dominated their events.”

The Scots swam their hardest, making tremendous efforts and achieving numerous personal records.

Just like the tests they have been taking, two of the Carlmont swimmers became stars yesterday afternoon when they broke school records.

Sophomore Gene Schrek broke the record time held in the 50 yard breast stroke in a thrilling race against some of Aragon’s best, continuing his ever lasting winning streak.

Shortly after, sophomore Isabella Paragas beat her opponents in the 100 yard back stroke, shattering a school record that she previously held.

Other Carlmont swimmers used their best efforts to achieve qualifying times for Central Coast Sectionals, which for many is a great accomplishment.

With PAL finals being just around the corner, the swimmers have begun to turn their attention to the upcoming finals.
