LOS ANGELES _ Sierra College finished in the top five for the 10th time in a decade at the State Swim and Dive meet held at East Los Angeles College April 26-28. The Wolverines also placed eight swimmers on All American status. Freshman Paige Lampert captured the 3-meter diving title coming back from an earlier disappointing 11th-place finish in the 1 meter. Lampert easily outdistanced the field with her gold-medal performance. The All-American effort put forth by the women swimmers proved to be just enough as they nosed out sixth-place Riverside Community College by one point. Besides Lampert, also making All American were freshmen Lauren Kilpatrick and Morgan Miller and sophomores Ashley Brown, Kaylin Kemper, Carissa McCoy, Kaley Rehorn and Elise Wenger. The women join the list of 121 Sierra College swimming and diving All Americans. Big 8 Championships Lampert claimed the 3-meter diving championship and the 800-meter freestyle relay team also took gold as the Wolverines finished second at the Big 8 Swim and Dive Championships at American River College April 19-21. The 800 free relay team of Miller, Kilpatrick, Wenger and Kaylin Kemper hit a season best 7:58.60 for the win. Lampert also took first in the 3 meter and second in the 1 meter at the NorCal Championships.
