The Saddleback women's swim team was in action this past weekend at one of the more prestigious meets of the year at Pasadena City College. The Gauchos had a great showing, finishing sixth out of 22 programs.
Saddleback had a number of top-10 finishes, including five top-10 finishes from the relay teams. In addition, three separate individuals finished in the top-10 in six different events.
The top finish of the day was from Raselle Chetwynd (pictured middle), who finished in third place in the 100 fly race. Chetwynd recorded a time of 1:10.88, finishing 3.08 seconds off the lead and just 0.21 seconds out of second place. She also finished in ninth place in the 200 earlier in the day with a time of 2:04.95, which puts her at 35th all-time in program history.
Audra Hogan (pictured left) was also impressive, finishing with three top-10 finishes on the day. Hogan opened the meet by finishing 10th in the 200 individual medley with a time of 2:28.54, which is good enough for 48th all-time in program history. She later finished in 10th place in the 100 breaststroke with a time of 1:17.84, which is 44th all-time in program history.
