The RBAC 13 – 14 girls RBAC swim team members (from left) Heather MacDougall, Kirsten Vose, Kate Herrill and Tiare Coker broke two Southern California swimming records.

History was made at the Rose Bowl Aquatics Center on Aug. 10 when the RBAC Girls 13 – 14 relay team broke two Southern California swimming records, including one that was 22 years old.

The relay team includes CV High School freshmen Heather MacDougall and Tiare Coker and from Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy freshman Kate Herrill and sophomore Kirsten Vose. The team broke the 22-year-old record of 1:51.14 in the 200-meter freestyle relay with a new record time of 1:50.37. In the 200-meter medley relay, the team timed a new record of 2:01.67, beating the previous record from two years ago of 2:03.00.

“We dreamed of breaking these records and worked hard in our practices to push ourselves to do our best,” said Kate Herrill. “We practiced together and helped each other build confidence in our abilities as individuals and as a team. Coach Jeff was so proud and I’m proud to represent the RBAC!”

There are approximately 18,000 swimmers currently registered with Southern California Swimming, which spans from San Luis Obispo to San Diego.

“The team performed better than we could ever have hoped,” said RBAC Head Swim Coach Jeff Julian. “They are all very strong individual swimmers and together they have impressive synergy. Each one was very determined to do their best so the team would triumph.”
