Congratulations to the 12 swimmers and divers who advanced to the state championships for their events this weekend. Of those athletes, three placed among the top five swimmers and divers in their events in California. Sophomore Remi Edvalson, the reigning WCAL and CCS Champion for women's diving, placed second in the state in her event, a feat that is particularly impressive given that she is an underclassman and only two years into her high school career. Junior Jassen Yep, who broke school records earlier this year — twice— in the 100-meter breastroke, completed his swim season with a fourth place finish in this event at the state level. Finally, sophomore Adam Wesson placed fifth in diving, wrapping up a season that included WCAL and CCS championships in the same event. Great job, Monarchs!
