  Place Points
Canyon/Anaheim 18th 38

Canyon moved to CIF-SS Division 1 level, the toughest, fastest high school swimming championship meet in the United States, for the 2019 season. The girls qualified all 3 relays for the prelims and had the 200 and 400 free relays came back and placed in the consolation finals at the championship meet. Each of those relays recorded our fastest time of the year for that event (1-4 second improvements from league finals 6 days ago-outstanding, mentally tough , focused swims) and each relay moved up 5-10 spots over opponents from their seeded times in the prelims, the result being that we came back for the championship meet for the 200 and 400 free relays. Haley Newman (100 fly and 500 free), Lexi Alexen (500 free) and Justin Hussong (200 IM and 100 fly) qualified for the prelims, swam lifetime bests there and made it back for the championship meet in each of their events. Haley’s swims in the 100 fly and 500 free established new school records as well as Justin breaking his own school record again in the 100 fly and setting a new school record in the 200 IM. Haley and Justin also qualified for the State swim championships and will compete in that meet in Fresno next week.
