Taz defeat GB Gators

By From page A6 | June 21, 2017

The El Dorado Hills Tasmanian Devils swim team traveled to Granite Bay Saturday with a short roster of swimmers yet still rallied to beat the Granite Bay Gators, bringing Taz’ dual meet record so far this season to 3-1.

“We showed up in Granite Bay with one-third of our team out for various reasons, yet our swimmers showed up and swam hard and pulled out a win,” said head coach Jenn Soto. “A lot of our top relays were new swimmers and we had a lot of personal best times, which is what we want to see the closer we get to Champs.”

The men’s 15-18 division was particularly strong. The 50-yard freestyle was swept by Taz swimmers Cole Tilley, Dominc Liongson and Forrest Burton taking first, second and third places. Leon Kassianenko, Kevin Taylor and Cole Tilley swept the 100-yard backstroke in that order. The men’s 15-18 200-yard relay teams also took the top spots.

“Our team is building and getting stronger every week,” Soto continued. “It will be exciting to see how the swimmers do in the coming weeks.”

The Taz swim team will travel to the Folsom Aquatic Center this Saturday to take on the Folsom Sea Otters.
