BC swimming takes first at home
Bakersfield College swim team took advantage of a couple teams that were short-handed by taking first at a home meet on March 30. BC took first out of four teams. Cuesta College took second, Santa Monica College third and L. A. Valley fourth.
“I thought the kids were great,” said BC coach Charlie Pike. “They were all real competitive and most of them had season-highs. Even though we beat Cuesta and Santa Monica in this meet, they were short-handed so I’m not sure how we’ll do against them in the conference championships.
“I think they did great fighting through [hell week] real well. They kept their spirits up and no one gave up, and I think that will help us,” he said.
He added that the swimmers he thinks that’ll do well in the Western State Conference Championships are Matt Prasser, Francesca Wyatt, Josh De La Rosa and Katherine Lugo. The WSC Championships will be on April 19-20 at Cuesta.
