Poway spoils boys swim’s league opener

By  Joe Naiman

In Palomar League opening swim competition, Ramona High lost to Poway 100-70.

“I knew I was going to struggle with the sprints,” said Ramona Coach Frank Yturralde. “I was kind of hoping we were going to do a little bit better in the 100-yard backstroke.”

Poway took the top two positions in the 50-yard freestyle, the 100-yard freestyle, and the 100-yard backstroke, and the Titans had three of the four fastest times in the 100-yard butterfly. Ramona won the other four individual events but did not have the top two finishers in any of them.

The Bulldogs won the meet’s first three events to hold the points lead. Garrett Glaudini, Carlo Silva, Ted Dean, and Zach Lane had a winning time of 1:49.63 in the 200-yard medley relay. Glaudini needed 1:48.36 to take first place in the 200-yard freestyle. Silva’s time of 2:15.49 in the 200-yard individual medley was the fastest in that race.

Poway took over the points lead by finishing first, second, and fourth in the 50-yard freestyle and expanded that lead by taking first, third, and fourth in the butterfly and first and second in the 100-yard freestyle.

Glaudini provided Ramona with its next event win. He spent 4:54.12 in the 500-yard freestyle race.

“He didn’t go very fast. Didn’t need to,” Yturralde said.

Poway took first place in the 200-yard freestyle relay and first and second in the backstroke before Silva’s time of 1:05.29 won the 100-yard breaststroke. The Titans closed the meet by winning the 400-yard freestyle relay.

Yturralde was pleased with the times his swimmers posted. “I’m happy with that progress,” he said.

The Bulldogs return from spring break with an April 10 Palomar League meet at Rancho Bernardo.
