Trojan swimmers beat Highlanders

“Swim to the ocean, swim to the sea, swim like sperm to the ovaries! T – R – O – J – A – N – S. What does that spell? Safe sex!” So chanted the Trojan swimmers chants before their first home swim meet on March 21.  

CVHS swim teams competed against Piedmont High School at their own swimming pool, winning like usual.

Sarah Livingston and Samantha Roberts suggest that the key to their success is effective teamwork and leadership.

“I think we have some really good captains that support our team and help us reach our goals. Our team works together well and we’re always here for each other,” said Roberts.

The final scores proved that the captains are doing something right. The varsity boys team won 110-55, and the varsity girls team won 125-39 . Junior varsity boys won by 125-40 and junior varsity girls won by 130-26.

“Piedmont is a good team and has some fast swimmers but we were faster,” said Malia Henry, who is on the girls varsity team.

Most CVHS students don’t realize how skilled our swimmers are, especially the boys varsity team, ranking first among 11 schools in the the West Alameda County Conference.
