How is this for dominant?
Bellarmine College Prep won its 31st consecutive boys team title in the California Central Coast Section swimming and diving championships Saturday in Santa Clara.
Bellarmine, in San Jose, got relay victories in the 200 freestyle and 400 freestyle and an individual victory from Aidan Burns in the 500 free.
What’s different this year is that the swimming season did not end with the section championship.
The California Interscholastic Federation will have its first state championship May 22-23 in Clovis. The top three swimmers in each section plus those who meet the state qualifying standard for at-large berths will compete.
“I think it’s great for the kids,” Bellarmine coach Larry Rogers told the San Jose Mercury News. “I think it’s great for the state. It brings notoriety. It puts us up with all the other states. They actually recognize state championship teams in National Interscholastic Swim Coaches Association. Right now, California doesn’t have that.”
