For CC, Kathryn Lundh led the way, going 56.03 to win the 100 fly and taking second in the 50 free (24.02).
Ava Delaney contributed two of La Costa Canyon’s three individual wins, sweeping the sprints. She out-touched UCLA commit Lundh in the 50 free (24.00) before racing to the 100 free win (52.42), while her teammate Noelle Harvey surged for the 200 free victory. Harvey was 1:49.45, able to take down Hazle’s 1:49.66. In the 200 free relay, Harvey and Delaney powered them to the win at 1:38.91, the only team under 1:41.
Arielle Brotman, a freshman at La Jolla, picked up two wins. She was 2:01.47 in the 200 IM and 1:02.42 in the 100 breast, making for an impressive high school debut.

Unfortunately these kids will not get to compete at State unless CIF reverses the terrible decision made yesterday to cancel the meet. Please register your displeasure with State CIF directors listed here: https://cifstate.org/about/cif_staff/index
It’s unfortunate that they won’t get the chance to swim again, CA has been on a roll cancelling stuff while USA swim is putting on events safely … oh well
