This was San Dieguito Synchro’s first competition of the year and head coach Barbara Strenk.
“It was a great way to kick off our meet season,” Strenk said. “The girls have set some pretty high goals for themselves this year, including making it to the U.S. Nationals in New York. This was a solid first step.”
San Dieguito Synchro was formed in 2004 and now has more than 50 junior swimmers ages 7-16.
