Poly’s Swimming and Diving team competed in the Mt. SAC Winterfest Championships on March 17 and 18 against other teams in the CIF Southen Section. Poly swam well, but two individuals swam exceptionally well, breaking records.
Sophomore Julia P. ’25 raced in the 100 Freestyle race, clocking in at 52.52. This beat the previous school record time of 52.62 set by Grace Carey ’18 in 2018. On the boys' side, Michael M. ’24 broke the school record and etched his name in Mt. SAC history, setting a new pool record. Swimming the 50 Freestyle, Michael finished in first place with a time of 20.70, beating the standing school record of 20.96 set by Andrew Saeta ’09 in 2009. Michael also finished first in the 100 Freestyle, setting a new pool record at Mt. SAC with a time of 45.73.
Coach Ryan Rodriguez says, "It was a very successful meet. Everyone dropped a significant amount of time which is great to see so early on in the season. It projects good times towards the end of the season." Congratulations to the Poly Swimming and Diving team and its members!
