If you don’t believe Mustangs can swim, well Junior Christian Arellano has proven they can. Coming fresh off of winning a BIG VIII League Championship in the 100 Breaststroke, which was in School and League record time, he has advanced to the CIF Prelims/Finals this Fri/Sat May 12/13 at the Riverside Aquatics Center.
Swim like every other sport has its own formula to get advance through the rounds and in swim it is solely time based. On Friday Christian must finish in the top 18 to have chance to hit the qualifying time on Saturday to advance to the CIF State Meet. His time of 59.04 ranks him at #9 in CIF Div. 2 currently. The top 9 finishers at CIF Prelims will be in the CIF Final heat and the #10-18 swimmers will be in the consolation heat which gives them the opportunity to qualify for the state meet and hit the standard.
The top 40 swimmers in each event will advance the CIF State Swim Finals with a State consideration mark of 59.94 and an automatic advance time of 57.44. Good luck to Christian this weekend at CIF Prelims/Finals!
