Swimming Update

It’s a new swimming season, and SMHS is now busy recruiting. The results are extraordinary so far: several boys have begun their first season on Feb 3, and the girl’s team size has doubled. Most of the new swimmers are freshmen, and their expectations are high. “We had a great season last year and our girls team won the championship in PAL and several of them went to CCS,” said Andy Kwang, a sophomore. He has been swimming for one year before he joined the SMHS swim team. Last year, the Girls swim team was undefeated and the swimmers are ready…

It’s a new swimming season, and SMHS is now busy recruiting. The result are extraordinary so far: several boys begin their first season this Monday, and girl’s team size has even doubled. Most of the new swimmers are freshmen, which reveals that our baby bearcats have started to participate in school activity. In fact, a couple of the recruits have been swimming for years, and hopefully joining will lead to a wonderful season. “ Last year, our elite swimmers graduated and I used to think that this coming year would not be that good as I expected. Now I am…

Girls Varsity Swimming PAL Champions

San Mateo’s girls’ varsity swim team capped off their brilliant undefeated season last spring with the best win of them all, the PAL Championships. In what turned out to be an exciting race to the finish, the Bearcat girls won the meet with 226 points, a close call of 7 points to second place El Camino’s 219. Even more surprising, the team accomplished this with only two first place finishes out of eleven total events. The top three teams, San Mateo, El Camino, and Hillsdale, knotted very closely in the standings during event 45, the 400-yard freestyle, our girls’ third…

Swim team preview

As a new swim season starts in February, the swim team is now busy recruiting their squad. Last year, five swimmers of the team went to CCS and team captain, Ronald Chen, went to the 2012 Olympic Swimming trials. It’s indisputable that the SMHS swim team had a fabulous season last year and they look forward to doing well this year as well. “We definitely need to work on our endurance to swim consistently because that’s the easiest job you can achieve at the meet. We are confident and realistic, and I will try my best to prepare my teams,”…

Swimming Preview

Swimming is a competitive sport that tests fitness, strength, and speed. With the new season coming up, the swimmers of San Mateo High are eagerly awaiting the upcoming season. Now that Ronald Chen, one of the best swimmers in the Peninsula, has graduated, we are expecting returning players to step up their game to keep San Mateo’s swim team strong. The swim team, for the most part, consists of the fall season water polo team. It helps them as a team because they already know their strengths and weaknesses as swimmers. They also work well together and know each other’s…

Lets hope that they…
