Two Spartan swimmers going to Junior Nationals

leave a comment »

La Cañada senior Alex Campbell and sophomore Katy Campbell will be traveling to Columbus, Ohio, this week to swim in the Junior National Championships, Dec. 10-12.

Alex currently swims for Rose Bowl Aquatics.  His sister swims at Swim Pasadena.  Both will be members of the La Cañada High swim team in the spring.

At the annual Holiday Meet at the Rose Bowl Aquatics Center, which featured 21 of the best swim teams from around the area, Alex Campbell took first in the 100 yard freestyle and 200 yard backstroke.

Last year, both Campbells played an important part in their team’s success. Alex Campbell was a leg in the boys’ 400 yard freestyle relay that clinched the Spartans fourth consecutive CIF Southern Section Division II championship.

Katy Campbell came up huge for the girls’ team with a first place finish in the girls’ 500 yard freestyle (4 minutes, 53.04 seconds).  Her place helped earn the Spartans second place in the Division II championships.

Swim season for high school will begin in the spring.
