Sophomore co-captains Natalie Stavn and Katie Morrison look to lead the small but mighty women's swim team this season. 

Stavn was the Big 8 Conference consolation final winner in the both the 100 and 200 butterrfly events last season, and she was also finaled in the 200 IM as well. This year she has proven to be role model when it comes to hard work in training and in the classroom, and she has alerady helped the Bear Cubs in the early 2020 season as a key member on the A relays.  Morrison was a 2019 All American and All Conference athlete, as well as being named to the All State Academic team. She was one of the top backstrokers in state finishing 3rd and 4th in the 100 and 200 backstrokes respectively at the CCCAA Championships last spring. 

The Cubs welcome several talented freshmen to their 2020 roster as well. Megan Ference (Santa Rosa HS) has already demonstrated that she can excel in a wide variety of events including sprint breaststroke, IM, and the mid-distance free events.  Jada Andrews (Tamalpais HS) has established herself early as a distance freestyler and a fierce relay anchor for the SRJC team. Ashley Simmons (Piner HS) is one of the team's leading breaststroker, and Bear Cub diver, Sophie Martinez (Novato HS), was the leading individual scorer among the divers at the NorCal Relay meet.

SRJC started off the season with a couple of busy weekends hosting the NorCal Relays Meet (2nd Place finish) and their annual Alumni Meet at the beginning of the month. And they competed in the two day, City College of San Francisco Invitational meet (3rd Place finish) last weekend. Highlights included top 3 finishes by:
