Girls open swim season with victory over Sultans

By Joe Naiman

The girls swim team at Ramona High School began its 2014 season March 7 at Santana High School’s pool and returned home with a 92-78 victory over the Sultans.

“It’s just exciting, an exciting way to start the season, to start off with a win,” said coach Jolyn Yanez.

A high school swim meet has 11 events and the Bulldogs took first-place points in the final nine of those. Ashlee Holabird, Paulina Bernd, and Jocelyn Schwegler each won two individual events and were on two first-place relay teams.

Holabird gave the Bulldogs their first win of the day by completing the 200-yard individual medley in 2:31.06, which is a consideration qualifying time for the CIF meet. Her winning 100-yard butterfly time of 1:05.96 is also a consideration time. Bernd won the 50-yard freestyle in 27.18 seconds and the 100-yard freestyle with a 59.28-second consideration time. Schwegler earned first-place points with times of 5:57.25 in the 500-yard freestyle and 1:12.20 in the 100-yard backstroke.

Ramona’s other individual winner was Daniella Talento, who completed the 100-yard breaststroke in 1:21.27.

Both of Ramona’s winning relay teams posted consideration times. Holabird, Logan Johnson, Schwegler, and Bernd had a time of 1:51.94 in the 200-yard freestyle relay. Bernd, Johnson, Holabird, and Schwegler swam the 400-yard freestyle relay in a different order while winning in 4:11.46.

The Bulldogs traveled to Grossmont High School for a March 12 tri-meet that also included Patrick Henry High School, but Ramona was on the short end of the three-way score. Bernd won the 100-yard freestyle while improving her consideration time to 59.26 seconds, and also posted a consideration time of 1:16.07 while finishing second in the 100-yard breaststroke.  Holabird won the 50-yard freestyle race in 27.76 seconds, while finishing third in the 100-yard butterfly but lowering her consideration time to 1:04.96.

San Marcos High School’s swim team will spend Thursday afternoon at Ramona’s pool.
