Dear Swimmers and Parents,
6 VJO Team Records Broken at 2014 CCCAA State Champs!
On May 1st-3rd Evan Augst (19) and Dylan Powell (18) from VJO attended the 2014 Junior College CCCAA State Championships in southern California and set a total of 6 new VJO team records in the 17 & Over age group.  I think this could possibly be the most VJO team records broken at one single meet.  Way to go gentlemen, keep up the good work!
