A handful of Harker swimmers competed at the CCS finals over the weekend. Vivian Wang, grade 10, took second place in both the women’s 200 IM and the women’s 100 free and will compete this weekend at the CIF state championships in Fresno. Wang’s CCS success helped lead the Harker women’s team to a 21st place CCS finish. The top men’s swimmer was Michael Auld, grade 11, who finished 18th in the men’s 500 free.

Five track and field athletes will be competing at the CCS championships next Saturday.

Davis Dunaway, grade 11, took first in the pole vault and second in the 300m hurdles; Demonte Aleem, grade 9, won the shot put; Kevin Wang, grade 12, took second in the discus; Anthony Contreras, grade 10, finished second in the 400m and 200m; and Niki Iyer, grade 11, won both the 1600m and 3200m races, setting a new meet record in the latter. Good luck at CCS!
