EDH Taz swim schools College Greens

By From page A11 | June 14, 2017

The El Dorado Hills Tasmanian Devils swim team beat the visiting College Greens Gators last Saturday, bringing Taz’ dual meet record this season to 2-1.

“Overall it was a solid meet for Taz,” said assistant coach Jon Radcliff. “We had a lot of swimmers make the Meet of Champions time standards in new events; at least one swimmer made the MOC time standard in 29 out of the 62 events on Saturday. That’s a good sign as we keep our eyes focused on the championship meet at the end of July.”

Several Taz swimmers stood out Saturday, including Jack Anderson, 6, who took first place in all three of his events. Beau Barry, 7, dominated in his races as did Kennedi Kernazitskas, 9. Other swimmers who shined are Gabriel Hudgens, 10, Alex Thompson, 12, Raghubir Chimni, 15, and Brooke Davidson, 12, whose 200-yard free relay team shaved nearly 3 seconds off their best time.

“The next few weeks we will tighten up on helping our swimmers that have received DQ slips in their events,” head coach Jenn Soto said. “If we can work with our swimmers and the reasons why they have been disqualified in their past events this will make us that much stronger going into Champs.”

Taz will travel to take on the Granite Bay Gators this Saturday.
