EBSL recap

By Giovanni Albanese Jr.

Week two of the 2011 East Bay Swim League (EBSL) season is in the books. After an opening weekend of cross-division match-ups members of the North and South divisions went up against their rivals in the first week of division play.

Chabot Marlins went to the Hayward-based Southgate Penguins in a North Division bout. Chabot was able to leave with a 644-388 win. Also in North Division play, a pair of Dolphins teams met in Hayward - that being the Hayward-based clubs Bay Area and Treeview. On June 11, the Treeview side had the better of the Dolphins, topping Bay Area 579-419. And in the other North Division match, perennial power, San Leandro Drowning Darryls beat the Castro Valley Crocodiles 690-347.

Moving to the South Division, with all teams based in the Tri Cities, the Newark Bluefins were victorious at home, beating the Glenmoor Stingrays 630-413. Seals Swim Team hosted the Highlands Sharks on June 11 and came away with a closely-contested win, 559-489. And finally, the Mission Valley Barracudas escaped their road contest at the Warm Springs Gators with a 653-395 win.

After two weeks of EBSL action, only three of the 12 clubs remain unbeaten: Seals Swim Club, Mission Valley Barracudas and the San Leandro Drowning Darryls. Those three unbeatens will take on division rivals on Saturday, June 18, looking to improve to 3-0. Seals head to Newark to take on the Bluefins; Mission Valley goes to the Highlands Sharks; and San Leandro hosts Chabot.
