Sean Apsey won two events for the San Marcos boys and Brittany Prentice posted CIF consideration time for the girls, as the Royals swept Dos Pueblos in a Channel League swim meet on Tuesday.

The boys won 108-75 and the girls took a 128-42 victory.

Apsey captured the 500 freestyle and 100 breaststroke, and swam on the winning 200 medley relay team for the Royals. The other relay members were Patrick Rowley, Tristan Depew and Spencer Wood.  Sprinter Matt Mills led off the victorious 200 free relay, joining Wood, Miles Cole and George Kuesis.  He also won the 50 free. Rowley won the 100 back, Depew took the 100 fly and Miles Van Homer finished first in diving.

"We had a really strong second half of the meet," said San Marcos coach Jeff Ashton. "We went 1-2 in the 500 free, 100 back and 100 breast. We also got really strong swims from Jade Hart in the 100 fly, Chuck Sweeney in the 100 back, and Nate Carr in the 100 breast."

The Royals boys are 5-1 overall and 4-1 in league.

For Dos Pueblos, Theo Velikov was a double winner, taking the 200 free (1:45.76) and 100 free (48.83). Dylan Elliott won the 200 IM (2:03.96) and was second in the 100 fly (57.16).

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!
