Cate Swimmers Fall Short Against Villanova Prep

Cate's swim teams lost to Villanova Prep in a Frontier League meet on Wednesday at Cate.

The Rams won most of the events, but Villanova's depth prove too much to overcome.

Halie Straathof took the first win in the girls' side of the meet by dropping nearly a full second in her 50 freestyle. She earned  her second win in the 100 freestyle with a CIF qualifying time. The Rams won the 200 freestyle relay with CIF consideration time. Tilly Bates won a close race in the 500 free, dropping several seconds from her previous swim against Carpinteria.

The Cate boys started with a win in the 200 medley relay. The Rams quarter consisted of Charlie Corman, Kaiser Ke, Marcos Brasil and Teddy Wecker. Andre Pincott won the 100 butterfly and joined Marcos, Ke and Julien Maes in the 200 free relay for a CIF consideration time. Victor Vasquez won the 100 backstroke, followed by Ke who won the 100 breaststroke. The boys finished off the meet with a win in the 400 Freestyle Relay but came up short in the final team scores, losing by just five points.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
