More information


Gulliver hosted a dual swim meet Monday in which its boys’ team matched up against Belen while the girls faced off against Lourdes. The girls came away victorious, winning 193-91, but the boys weren’t as fortunate, dropping their meeting with the Wolverines 191-95.

It was a collective effort for the Raiders’ girls’ team as it swept the three relays it swam against Lourdes, winning the 200- and 400-freestyle relay plus the 200 medley.

Katjia Rocha and Namilla Sanchez each won two individual races to contribute to the win. Sanchez won the 100 freestyle and 100 backstroke, and Rocha won the 200 IM and the 500 freestyle.

It was a different story when the Gulliver boys swam against Belen. Jonathan Chow was the only Raider to win a race — the 100 freestyle with a time of 51.78.

Jose Alvarez was dominant in short-distance races for the Wolverines, taking the crown in the 100 butterfly and the 100 breaststroke.

The Belen boys also won the three relay races Monday.
