The SRJC Women's Swim and Dive Team, ranking No. 5 in the state in 2006, has finished in the top five at the state championships for it's fourth consecutive season. In the past three seasons, the Bear Cub women have broken 14 school records, including setting a new State Record in the 200 Medley Relay, and producing seven national champions. Head Coach Jill McCormick was also named California Community College Coach of the Year in 2004 and 2005. The SRJC Swim and Dive Team has been in existence 30 years including numerous state champions and team titles. We compete in the California Community Colleges League. We belong to the Big Seven Conference, arguabley one of the strongest conferences in the state, giving us a great slate of dual meets, rivalries, and a very fast Conference Championship Meet. We have a strong women's program that consistently attracts swimmers and divers at the national level as well as athletes willing to improve to that level. During our recent seasons we have won two state titles and consistently finished in the top four at our conference meet, including many All American and All Academic student- athletes. Coach McCormick recruits athletes who not only demonstrate a high level of teamwork, focus, and discipline in the pool and in the classroom, but who also like to have fun with their team and enjoy competition.
