Two Crescenta Valley High swimmers set league records as the Falcons boys’ and girls’ swim teams dominated the Pacific League at the league finals at Burbank on Thursday.
The Crescenta Valley boys’ team dominated to the tune of 592 points (Arcadia was second place with 352). Likewise, the girls’ team scored 534 1/2 points to Arcadia’s second-place 358 1/2.
For the boys, it was their 18th straight league title, with Harrison Thai and Young Tae Seo leading the way.
Seo took first in the 200-yard freestyle at 1 minute, 41.94 seconds and set the league record.
Thai set a league record in the 100 breaststroke, finishing at 1:00.78. He also won the 100 backstroke (52.92).
Seo, Thai, Josh Chi and Andrew De Jong won the 400 freestyle relay (3:14.89).
The CV girls’ squad only won one event on the day – the 200 medley relay with Robin Yi, Julia Warden, Sabrina Hatzer and Adrienne Ingalla (1:57.92) – but their depth won them the title. Yi put up a solid individual effort in the 200 individual medley (2:16.70) for second place and Ingalla got another second place in the 100 breaststroke (1:12.84).
Ingalla and Hatzer later teamed up with Rachel Krebsbach and Kim Fraisse for a second-place finish in the 200 free relay (1:46.34).
