Even the nice weather could not help the Scots on April 11, as they faced the competitive Burlingame swim team.

The Burlingame High School Panthers have an excellent swim team, who has gone undefeated so far this season apart from one junior varsity girls loss to Terra Nova.

“We knew that Burlingame was a really good team, so we tried our best and I think that everyone still had fun and was putting out good times,” stated freshman Erika Marshall.

All four Scots swim teams lost to the Panthers, with the closest score being the girls JV, who lost 90-96. Boys JV lost 80-96, and boys varsity lost 73-99.

Sophomore boys varsity swimmer Nico Camerino commented, “They just out-touched us in everything, and for varsity boys, we expected it to at least be a little closer, but unfortunately we didn’t account for the fact that they has such a deep team.”

Perhaps the toughest loss for Carlmont was the girls varsity, who lost 59-110.

“I think that we were at least hoping that the scores would be closer, but at least we had a few good races and had fun,” stated sophomore swimmer Pierre Llorach.

The meet was a good chance for Carlmont to see who some of their hardest competition will be for CCS, so they can be more prepared for the playoffs after the regular season ends.

“The meet in general went decently. We tried hard and a lot of people put up some of their best times,” said Camerino.

At the very least, all of the swimmers were enthusiastic about the sun and warmth, and will be more prepared for their next meet against Sequoia.
