         With a 135-35 win over visiting Santa Clara on March 24, the Milpitas High boys varsity swim team improved to 3-0 on the season.

         The 200-meter freestyle relay team of seniors Brian Hodang and Mark Tran, junior Kevin Vuong and freshman Brian Tran qualified for Central Coast Section, according to boys coach Jennifer Loomis. Also, Mark Tran qualified for CCS in the 50-meter freestyle.

          The boys frosh/soph team improved to 2-1 with a 101-67 win.

         “Every single person, on both teams, contributed to leading the teams to victory,” Loomis said. “Many people are improving their times each time they swim and that is the best win we can get. While we do like winning, it is the personal growth of each person (athlete and coach) that is most important in high school athletics.”

           Over the past two seasons, the boys varsity team has finished the regular season undefeated in dual meets at home.

           Meanwhile, girls varsity lost 100-76 against the league opponent Bruins with several close events. Milpitas won three individual events and one relay.

           Senior Kelley Truong, junior Vivian Le, sophomore Heather Gray and freshman Julie Tran took first place in the 200-meter medley relay with a time 2:00.28.

           Individually, Truong won the 50-meter freestyle with a time of 25.87 seconds, Gray won the 100-meter butterfly with a time of 1:01.12 and Tran won the 500-meter freestyle with a time of 5:44.21.

           The team has started to come together because of the leadership provided by seniors Noami Neo, Vivan Pham, An To and Truong, girls coach Jerome Chung said.

           Girls junior varsity lost 112-66.

           This week, Milpitas was scheduled to host league foe Cupertino today (March 31).
