Congratulations LAC swimmers for a great meet at Zone 2 Championships. We placed 7 swimmers on the Zone 2 All Star Team. This was the second highest total of all teams in participation and LAC had the highest ratio of All-Star qualifiers per team members of all teams at Zone 2 Champs! We also placed Coach Theresa on the team as an All-Star coach. Way to go Coach Theresa.
Here is a list of LAC Zone 2 All Stars who will be travelling to Nevada in March to represent Zone 2 against the rest of Pacific and who will recieve a cap, a sweatshirt, and stay in a hotel with the other All-Stars:
