Stingrays edge Dolphins in EBSL opener
Submitted By Tammy Ortega
Rain or Shine, on Saturday, June 4, the Treeview Dolphins kicked off their first meet of the 2011 East Bay Swim League season against the Glenmoor Stingrays. Wearing their team colors of orange and black, the Dolphins rallied with excitement against the pirate- and princess-themed Stingrays.
Treeview would like to recognize head coach Adam Kallabis, assistant head coach Anna Gainey-Vejar and this year's newest coach Kevin Correia for their hard work conditioning both the new and returning swimmers for the first meet of the season.
With a twist of fate, new coach Kevin, who previously coached for the Stingrays, was able to begin his first competitive meet of the season visiting with his old team while enjoying his new one. Working hard to beat their times while enjoying exciting relays and close races, both teams demonstrated their love and excitement for swimming. In the end the Stingrays prevailed over the Dolphins for a final score of 564 to 476.
Congratulations to Treeviews first swimmer of the meet for 2011, 10-year-old Jeremy Nacu, for dropping his times in all of his events, with the best time of 15:49 on his 50 free. Cute and as little as they are, the 10-and-under swimmers did amazingly well staying focused and swimming hard till the end on this rainy and cold Saturday proving that hard work and determination pays off.
The Treeview Dolphin swimmers range from ages 5-18 and are primarily located in the South Hayward and Union City areas, however include swimmers from Fremont, Oakland and San Leandro. If you are interested in information about the team you can visit their website at www.treeviewdolphins.org.
Next dual meet for the Treeview Dolphins is Saturday, June 11, at Washington Manor.
