"It was a pretty convincing victory for both teams, and on both the
varsity and junior varsity level," Indian Coach Rey Rivera said.
"Considering how limited our pool time has been (because of the weather),
I was really happy with the way we swam."
The boys' team won all of its relay events, including the 400
freestyle relay, as teammates Kenny Livas, Billy Cordon, Justin Frank and

Sophomore Curtis Hyman, one of the young swimmers Rivera is high on,

The Indians figure to get a taste of better competition, Monday, after
adding a meet against Monrovia High to their schedule.
Against San Gabriel, Alberti also did well individually. The freshmen
