The girls’ swim team shattered expectations this season, winning a fourth straight Mission League Championship, swimmer Angelica Sih ’20 said. The boys’ swim team placed second overall in the Mission League after finishing 6-1 overall for the second consecutive year.

“Honestly, we weren’t expecting to win league this year after we lost a lot of important swimmers, but we were able to pull through and win,” Sih said. “Although we don’t have enough swimmers to place high [in CIF], we’re looking forward to some fast swims.”

For diving, University of Notre Dame diving commit Will Rains ’19 won the Mission League Boys’ Diving Championship and Cypress Toomey ’19 won the Mission League Girls’ Diving Championship.

The boys’ only loss came against Loyola High School on March 19, losing 86-85.

“Although a victory would’ve been nice, we all had some fast swims and hope to carry our success into CIF and State [Playoffs],” team captain Jameson McMullen ’19 said.

The Wolverines will compete in the CIF-SS Division I Prelims tomorrow and the top 18 swimmers will advance to the CIF-SS Division I Finals on Saturday.
