Although Ramona High School’s boys swim team lost its April 27 home dual meet to Westview High School, Ramona sophomore Josh Sammons set a school record in the diving event.
Sammons, who set a school record when he scored 207.10 points on six dives while winning last year’s CIF Division II individual championship, scored 246.05 points in the meet against Westview.
“He’s actually been doing very well,” Ramona coach Frank Yturralde said of Sammons. “The degree of difficulty is going higher and he is scoring high on those.”
Despite Sammons’ win, Westview won the meet by a 119-64 score.
“I knew it was going to be a tough meet. They’ve got a lot of depth,” Yturralde said.
Ramona won three of the 12 events, including the diving, during the meet. Collin Torsak swam the 50-yard freestyle in 23.09 seconds to take first place while Alan Williams won the 100-yard backstroke with a time of 58.96 seconds.
“It was a good meet, though. Hard racing,” Yturralde said.
The loss gave Ramona a 3-3 record in both Valley League dual meets and overall for the season in dual meets.
On May 13, Sammons will travel to Fallbrook High School for the league diving competition while the swimmers will spend May 14 at Del Norte High School for the league meet preliminary heats and May 15 at Del Norte for the league championship races.
