STAFF REPORTS

For the first time, the San Marcos High School swim teams claimed district titles, winning in both the boys and girls competitions Feb. 2 at Palo Alto College.

San Marcos accumulated a combined 326 points for a comfortable win over San Antonio-Steele, which won 280. San Antonio-Southwest came in third (114 points) followed by San Antonio-East Central (102) and South San Antonio (82).

En route to the championship, the Rattlers also set school records in three events: both the boys and girls 200-meter free relay and the boys 200-meter individual medley.

The girls relay team was made up of Sage Richardson, Alyssa Long, Kelli Elliot, and Monet Moreau. The boys relay team was made up of Choon Lai, Adam Escamilla, Josh Vences and Forrest Hess, who also turned in the record-setting individual medley performance.

Individual medley “is considered by most swimmers as the most difficult event in our sport as it tests your ability and endurance in all 4 strokes,” swim coach Skip Gilkerson said.

Neither team scored high enough at the regional meet Feb. 8-9 to qualify for the UIL swimming and diving state meeting this week in Austin.
