EL DORADO HILLS — Three Oak Ridge High boys swimmers and one of the relay teams shined at the Delta River League meet at the El Dorado Hills Community Service District pool Saturday.

Brandon Mills, Dylan Kubick and Trevor Dong set new league and school marks for the Trojans. Mills was first in the 200 IM with a time of 1:56.04. His preliminary mark was 1:57.41. In the 100 breast stroke, he also took first place with a time of 58.45, shattering his prelim time of 1:00.15. His new times in both events are new Delta River League marks.

Kubick also snapped two records at the meet. In the 100 fly, he had a time of 52.21. His prelim time was 52.49. In the 100 backstroke, Kubick had a time of 52.61.

The 200 medley team recorded a time of 1:36.44; its prelim was 1:39.49.

According to Oak Ridge head coach Patrick Foster, Mills never lost an event during his four years of swimming for the Trojans. He’s proud of the Trojans’ performances.

“I am so proud of this group and I couldn’t ask for anything more from these kids,” Foster said. “They swam their hearts out and was awesome to see. Everyone had standout performances.”

As a team, Oak Ridge took second place in league with 582.50 points. Jesuit won the outright league title with 590.5 points. Ponderosa was sixth with 132 points.

On the girl’s side, Oak Ridge was also in second place at the league championships with 473 points. St. Francis won the league title with 626.50 points.

Leading the Lady Trojans were Mikala Mefford, Morgan Jones, Cypress Lampe, Maddie Velez and Samantha Newman.

Ponderosa’s Samantha Woo had a big day in the pool, too. She placed second in the 50 freestyle with a time of 25.25. She also competed in the 200 IM.

“Way shorter,” Woo said.
