Times satisfy Yanez in girls swim meet

By Joe Naiman

Mount Carmel High School’s girls swim team defeated Ramona by a 113-57 score May 6 at the Bulldogs’ pool, but Coach Jolyn Yanez was more focused on her swimmers’ times than on the results of the races.

“I was really happy with the results,” Yanez said. “We were looking for best times.”

Times are used to seed swimmers in the CIF meet. In some cases that translates into whether or not the swimmers qualify for the CIF preliminaries while swimmers who have already qualified can improve their times and be seeded into a preferred race or lane.

All six of Ramona’s swimmers in the 200-yard individual medley and the 200-yard freestyle races obtained best times, as did five other Bulldog swimmers.

The Bulldogs won three of 11 races against the Sundevils with sophomore Gina Lucas taking first place in both of her individual races and one of her relays. Lucas had a time of 2:12.90 in the 200-yard individual medley and swam the 100-yard breaststroke in 1:09.76.

The 200-yard freestyle relay team of Ellie Carrano, Paulina Bernd, Madi Lanz, and Lucas also won their race. The league meet will be held at Rancho Bernardo High School.

The preliminary heats will take place today, and swimmers with fast enough times to advance to the finals will compete Saturday.
