SRJC Men's Swimming wrapped up their regular season meets this weekend doubling down with the ARC Sprint Meet on Friday and the Chabot Invite on Saturday.
The Cubs have been steadily building momentum after their strong performance during first annual Bobby Miyashiro Prelims/Finals Invite which SRJC hosted March 23-25. At that meet the guys set many personal and season bests. Highlights included freshman Andrew Morris finishing first in both the 100 (50.92) and 200 (1:57.05) Backstroke as well as taking second overall in the 200 IM (1:58.06). Also having a breakout meet was sophomore Juan Madrigal who took 2nd in the 100 Fly (53.31) and 4th in the 200 Fly (2:04.05). Team co-captain Teophil Labus go into the top 8 with his 200 Breast (2:23.21), along with SRJC's other team captian, Dante Martinez, who finished 8th in both the 100 Free (51.06) and the 100 Fly (55.38). And rounding out our top 8 finishers, sophomore Justin Moura took 6th in the 200 Fly (2:15.08) as well.
At the Hawk Invite March 31-April 1, the Cubs relays stepped it up posting season best times in the 400 Free Relay (3:17.48) with a team of Morris, Madrigal, Martinez, and Greyson McCaw; the 400 Medley (3:40.85) with a team of Morris, Labus, Madrigal, and McCaw; and in the 200 Free Relay (1:30.87) with a team of Morris, Martinez, McCaw, and Madrigal. McCaw also had a break out lifetime best swim in his 500 Free (4:53.16) finishing 2nd overall. Madrigal, with his underwater skills, won the 50 Fly (23.80), and Morris again swept the backstroke events as well.
