The San Marcos girls team went 1-1 in the competitive meet, losing to Foothill (79-61) and defeating Sacred Heart (74-63).

The Royals boys clocked a CIF time of 1:41.22 in winning the 200 medley relay. The team consisted of Hunter May, Matt Treadway, Jayden Francis and Matt Mills. The 400 free relay of Francis, May, Tristan Depew and Mills also set a qualifying times.

In individual events, Mills (50 free) and Depew (100 fly) met CIF qualifying marks.

"We swam at a very fast swim meet down in Orange County against one of the top programs in OC and one of the top programs in Northern California," said boys coach Jeff Ashton.

Ashton said Kellen Radtkey had a great swim in the 500 free and clocked a personal best on his leg of the B 400 free relay.

The San Marcos girls got a win from Maija Ninness in the 100 back in 57.97, and she anchored the 400 free relay to first place in time of 3:44.84. The other team members were Megan Musick, Fiona Kuesis and Piper Smith.

Kuesis finished second in the 500 and 200 freestyle and Smith was runner-up in the 50 free (24.84) and 100 free (55.61). Lilly Rose Akin was third in the 200 and 500 free and Hannah Meyer took fourth in the 200 IM (2:23.44) and 100 butterfly (1:05.62).

"Today was a really competitive meet," coach Chucky Roth. "We learned a lot about our team and feel confident we can make the needed changes to improve further."

San Marcos swims against Santa Barbara at home next Thursday.

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!
