Great Job 10 & Under Champs Swimmers!
Last weekend we had 13 VJO swimmers attend the 10 & Under Championships Meet in Cupertino, CA. Our swimmers had a total of 19 new best times… WOW!
Highlights: AJ Caberto (9) achieved a new “BB” time in his 100 breast with a 1:40.15. Jillian Randolph (6) achieved a new “A” time in her 50 back with a 51.62. Trinity Rivera (10) achieved a new Far Western (“AAA”) time in the 100 back with a 1:13.49. Great job to all of our VJO swimmers, keep up all the hard work!
