RSD Wins 2nd Place
at Junior Olympics
Our RSD Swim Team took 91 athletes to the San Diego Junior Olympic Championships in Poway, February 24-26th. Our swimmers did a great job with many swimmers receiving personal best times. Some of the highlights included some first time finalists, exciting relays, and some great team spirit! We proudly took home the 2nd place overall team trophy.
From Coach Joe
It was amazing to see the great strides that RSD has made in the past year. Our team spirit, never give up attitude, and adherence to our team values was all evident at the Junior Olympics! All of our swimmers were amazing and contributed to this special team effort. Some of our swimmers stood out from the pack, including meet high point winners such as Isabella Abrajan for 11–12 year old girls, and Eric Workman
for the 13–14 year old boys.
Isabella broke 4 San Diego-Imperial Swimming records, including the long standing 50 and 100 yard butterfly events, as well as both the 100 and 200 yard individual medley events. She also won first place in every event that she swam. Eric had exceptional performances in all of his races winning the 100, 200, 500 & 1000 freestyle events.
Our 13–14 year old boys were an outstanding group of swimmers this year, sweeping all of the relays and getting second or third in all three as well with our B relay. Two of those winning relays were San Diego-Imperial Swimming records. Our ten and under and 11-12 age groups were amazing as well, having our best year ever in those age groups.
Special congratulations to event winners Ethan Hildesheim (100 & 200 breaststroke), Yuma Dugas (400 IM, 100 Fly), Mason Morris (200 Fly), Phil Pozdnyakov (100 back & 200 IM), and Carlos Munoz
(200 back & 1650 free).
We are extremely proud of all of our swimmers and the many accomplishments and achievements reached this past weekend. Go RSD!!
