Visalia, CA. The Crush Swim and Dive team won 14 events at the Central Valley Conference Kick-Off Invitational hosted by College of the Sequoias on Friday, February 8. The meet was attended by Fresno City College, Merced College, College of the Sequoias, and Clovis Community College.
The men found some good success against their conference foes. As a team they placed 3rd, scoring 453 points to finish behind a very strong Merced team and last year's returning champs, COS. The men were able to muster 3 event wins. The first of which came in a last length challenge by returning CCCAA All-American, Dante Ramos, to win the 200 individual medley. The other two wins came on the diving boards, as Jaylan Neal keeps his 1m springboard win streak alive and freshman, Joshua Depaz, outscored Neal on the 3m springboard.
The next meet for the Crush Swim and Dive teams will be a home invitational jointly hosted between Fresno City College and Clovis Community College, on February 22 and 23 at the Clovis North High School Aquatic Center.
