In February, after only four competitions, Sanchez set five Mountie School Records and lead the state in seven individual events. At the Mt. SAC Swimming Invitational (February 21st and 22nd), he set seven state leading marks and five invitational meet records which included individual records in the 200 Individual Medley, 200 Freestyle, 200 Butterfly and two relay records in the 400 Freestyle Relay and 800 Freestyle Relay.
