Swim team’s seniors close out high school career at CIF
By Joe Naiman
The four seniors on Ramona High’s girls swim team — Paulina Bernd, Ashlee Holabird, Logan Johnson and Jocelyn Schwegler — closed out their high school careers in the CIF finals May 24 at Granite Hills.
Holabird competed in the 100-yard butterfly and all four girls represented Ramona in the 200-yard medley relay and 400-yard freestyle relay.
Their finishes in the three events gave Ramona’s girls 17th place among Division II schools. The two relay teams and Holabird all swam in the consolation finals.
The CIF preliminaries were held May 22 at Granite Hills. The top six times in each event earned lanes in the championship finals while the next six times qualified those swimmers or relay teams for the consolation finals. The 200-yard relay medley team of Schwegler, Bernd, Holabird, and Johnson placed 11th in both the preliminaries and the finals with times of 2:01.89 May 22 and 2:02.09 May 24.
Holabird swam the 100-yard butterfly in 1:03.07 during the preliminaries for the 10th-place time. In the finals she improved her time to 1:02.45 and her position to ninth place.
Schwegler, Johnson, Holabird and Bernd placed 12th in both 400-yard freestyle relay races with times of 4:00.52 in the preliminaries and 3:57.40 in the finals.
Bernd was the first alternate in two individual events after a pair of 13th-place preliminaries times. She swam the 100-yard freestyle in 58.53 seconds and the 100-yard breaststroke in 1:14.44. Ramona’s only other CIF preliminaries entry was the 200-yard freestyle relay team of Katie Szakara, Carney Flinn, Daniella Talento and Serena Lopez, whose time of 1:55.16 placed 21st.
The May 13-16 fires rescheduled the Valley League preliminaries and finals to a single day on May 19 at Del Norte High School. Del Norte won the league championship, although Ramona was second both at the league meet and in the league’s final standings. Holabird’s time of 1:03.32 in the 100-yard butterfly placed second. Schwegler, Bernd, Holabird and Johnson were third in the 200-yard medley relay at 2:02.64. Schwegler, Johnson, Holabird and Bernd placed third in the 400-yard freestyle relay with a time of 4:02.40. Schwegler was third in two individual events, swimming the 500-yard freestyle in 5:48.04 and the 100-yard backstroke in 1:08.34. Talento’s time of 1:18.00 in the 100-yard breaststroke gave her third place.
