San Marcos Swimmers Post 3 All-American Times at CIF State Meet

The San Marcos girls swim team placed 13th at the second annual CIF Swimming Championships in Clovis on Saturday.

The Royals established three All-American times and set two Channel League records in the meet.

The 200 medley relay swam 1:46.01 for a new league record and an automatic All-American time. The team placed ninth. Paige Hauschild finished sixth in the 100 freestyle in a 50.96, which is an All-American time.  The 200 free relay broke the league record and qualified for another All-American time by going 1:35.46, good for fourth place.

The Royals experienced some bad luck as their 400 free relay was disqualified for a false start.

The meet marked the end of Olivia Smith's high school career.

"She has helped transform this program into what it is today, leading the team to a fourth-place CIF finish," coach Chuckie Roth said. "She holds one individual and three relay school records, and is a two-time all-American. More importantly, she is one of the hardest working swimmers and humble competitors."

Smith willcontinue her swimming and academic endeavors at UC Davis.

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!
