2011 Highlights

3rd PlaceSRJC Women's Swim & Dive Team although small in numbers, were mighty in talent and effort. After a rigorous meet schedule, the Cubs finished 4th overall at the Big 8 Conference Championships, just a few points out of second, but came back less than five days later to get on the podium and took 3RD PLACE overall at the CCCAA State Finals in southern California. The highlight of the meet was when SRJC's 200 Medley Relay of Caitlin O'Rourke, LuLu Thrower, Lauren Bugglin, and Jessica Crawford, won the STATE TITLE on the second night of competition, with a tie of 1:50.66. This was theCaptains eighth year in a row the Cubs finished in the top five at the state finals, after winning the title in 2004, 2005, 2008, and 2009. SRJC was led by Captains Caitlin O'Rourke, Jillian Clark, and Vanessa Giosso (the women's only representative on the diving boards), and finished the season with eight All Americans, three Academic All Americans, six All Conference Athletes, and one state title. Most Valuable Swimmer, sophomore Lauren Bugglin, finaled in all three of her individual events and both the conference and state championship meets, and led the team overall in points scored for the Cubs. Bugglin will be continuing her collegiate swimming career next year as she transfers to UOP on scholarship. Congratulations to the 2011 team on another fantastic season. Individual and team honors are listed below. (Photos Courtesy of Debi Pettit)
