Last Thursday, the Mustangs had their first duel meet of the 2019 season against one of their biggest rivals, Peninsula High School. Costa had nearly a full sweep, winning boys frosh-soph (115-39 points), girls frosh-soph (95.5-58.5 points), and girls Varsity (87-83 points). The score was very close for the boys Varsity with the final point total at 88-82 for Peninsula. In the words of Varsity captain, Colin Le, Varsity boys showed an “A+ effort.”
At the meet there was one new school record, two CIF automatic cuts, and several CIF consideration cuts. The lastest school record was set by Senior, Kai Bathurst in the 200 IM (1:55.65). The two automatic swims were made by Senior, Alex Crisera in her 200 Freestyle (1:53.43) and her 200 IM (2:07.36). All very impressive in-season times.
