CVHS swim team defeats Foothill High at first home meet

After a rewarding triumph against Berkeley High a week before, the Castro Valley High swim team once again defeated opponent Foothill High (girls 89-81, boys 134-35) at the first home meet on March 2.

“I think the team is going to have a fantastic season,” said coach Brian Berry, who had a positive outlook on the team’s imminent success. “We’re expecting to win the league championship.”

The team has been the champions of the past four seasons in the H.A.A.L. (Hayward Area Athletic League) dual meets and varsity girls have been victorious for four consecutive years while the boys have remained undefeated for the past six years.

“I want to do well in the 200 freestyle because I really want to master the pacing,” said Miles Teague, sophomore on the varsity team. “If I do that it would be a really big feat for me.”

“Transferring from Bishop O’Dowd, I was glad to experience such an exciting and fun team!”” said Kate Miller, a sophomore.

“It’s good to be back,” added senior David Gresham. “As my last year, I’m looking forward to all the ridiculous things that will make me laugh!”
