Paseo Aquatics sends 3 athletes back to the Southern California All-Stars meet
Valencia, CA (January 25, 2019) – For the 3rd consecutive year we will have swimmers representing Paseo Aquatics at the coveted Southern California All-Stars meet. Swimmers chosen for this event are the most talented and gifted swimmers that SoCal has to offer and in many cases they are ranked very high in the nation. Riley Botton, Teia Salvino, and Sydney Zancanaro were awarded this honor again, having another stellar short-course season.
Riley Botton, is a well-respected athlete in the SCV as well as SCS. The 14 year old veteran has stamped her 3rd-consecutive SoCal All-Stars meet, which is very rare to do. She has faced many challenges this last year with injuries and was able to bounce back and have a great Winter Age-Group Championships meet. She was also selected as Captain for the prolific 13-14 girls relay team (which all 3 of these young ladies are on) that is chasing an ever elusive SCS record. She will go head-to-head with familiar faces this Sunday and this meet will be a preview to her tough matchups at the SoCal JO meet in March. Stay tuned!
Teia Salvino was selected to her very first Pac-Coast All Stars meet and 2nd-consecutive All Star meet overall in early January. Only the Top-8 in her age group are selected to take part in this prestigious event. During her time there, she was able to compete with some of the top swimmers arguably in the nation. She took first in the 13-14 50 yard freestyle, also setting a new Pacific Coast All Star meet record with a time of 23.58. Her Pac-Coast team also won its 10th-consecutive meet victory over top regions from Northern California, Oregon swimming and the rest of the Pacific Northwest this year.
Sydney Zancanaro will be attending her 2nd-consecutive SCS All-Stars meet this weekend swimming in only her 4th season of club. After having an amazing WAG Championships meet, where she saw personal bests in just about every individual event she swam, she also was a member of the team record-breaking relays in 3 events. She looks to capitalize on the opportunity to race some of the best in SoCal again this Sunday!
Congratulations Riley, Teia and Sydney and good luck!
