Although the Western Sierra Collegiate Academy swim team has only seven athletes in the water, they make up for it through individual effort

In a recent meet that included local prep powers Woodcreek and Del Oro, the Wolves claimed four first-place finishes, three seconds and a third.

Annie Bristow, who will head for Biola University on scholarship next year, was first in varsity 200-yard freestyle and second in 50 freestyle. The senior has also shattered the CIF Sac-Joaquin Section qualifying marks in the 200 and 500 freestyle.

In junior varsity competition, Madison Gwaltney swept the 100 freestyle and 100 backstroke. Kendall Lawrence captured the 200 individual medley and was second in the 100 freestyle.

Abigail Grant was second in the 100 backstroke and the girls 200 freestyle relay swim team placed third.

Kaleyah Calhoun was fourth in the 50 freestyle and fifth in the 100 breaststroke.

Samuel Grant and Tyler Pottgieser round out the team; both compete in the 100 and 200 freestyle events.
