Glaudini takes Top Swimmer award at boys swim banquet
By JOE NAIMAN
At the Ramona High School boys swim team’s post-season banquet, sophomore Garrett Glaudini was presented with the team’s Top Swimmer honor.
Glaudini’s activities during the year included breaking his own school records in three events, including the 200-yard individual medley in which he won his second consecutive Palomar League championship.
“His swimming speaks for itself. He’s very competitive and a good swimmer,” said Ramona coach Frank Yturralde.
The Coaches Award which is bestowed based on effort, presence at practice, and other non-statistical factors, was presented to sophomore Carlo Silva.
“That definitely is Carlo. He is a very hard worker. He’s very disciplined and he puts a lot of effort in the pool for practice,” Yturralde said.
Sophomores swept the varsity awards as Jesse Reiling received Most Improved honors at the banquet.
“Jesse worked really hard this year,” Yturralde said.
Yturralde’s initial plans were to have Reiling focus on freestyle events, but Reiling volunteered to participate in a breaststroke swim-off.
“He jumped in the water and did really well,” Yturralde said.
During the season Reiling dropped six seconds from his breaststroke time and qualified for the CIF meet.
“Just absolutely remarkable what he did this year and how hard he worked improving in that stroke,” Yturralde said.
The only junior varsity award was for the JV’s Top Swimmer and freshman Garrett Klem exited the banquet with that honor.
The banquet also included a pot-luck dinner and the presentation of varsity letters and junior varsity certificates.
“It was a really good banquet. It’s always good to get everybody together,” Yturralde said.
