Girls swimming | PARMENTER SEEKS GRAND FINALE
WEDNESDAY, MARCH 17, 2010 AT 12:02 A.M.
In the spotlight: San Marcos senior Nicole Parmenter (left) looks to set a San Diego Section record in the 100-yard backstroke for the third straight record and add her third consecutive Division II title in the 100 butterfly. “I’d really like to better my records and go out with a good senior year,” said Parmenter, who will attend Cal. She also established a section record in the 100 fly in last year’s section meet, but it was broken hours later by La Costa Canyon’s Kendyl Stewart in the Division I competition. Parmenter helped San Marcos place 10th at the section meet for the first top 10 showing in school history.
Others to watch: Haren Alanis (La Jolla), Katie Anderson (Rancho Bernardo), Andrea Basaraba (Bishop’s), Rosa Bebi (Helix), Kimberi Boone (Cathedral Catholic), Katherine Bowersox (Rancho Bernardo), Nicole Bustamante (Mt. Carmel), Erin Cox (Point Loma), Allison DePeralta (Torrey Pines), Monica Dornick (Carlsbad), Haley Ferrer (Our Lady of Peace), Haley Francois (Rancho Bernardo) diving, Jenna Harris (Cathedral Catholic), Jessica Heim (Horizon), Madi Lanz (Ramona), Chandra Lukes (San Pasqual), Allie Knight (La Jolla), Roni Meyer (Granite Hills), Justine Panian (Mission Hills), Riley Peterman (Monte Vista), Chi Pham (Westview), Eva Pold (Torrey Pines), Riley Spitser (Rancho Bernardo), Mikkel-Ane Stipe (La Costa Canyon), Breann Stevens (Ramona), Kendyl Stewart (La Costa Canyon), Allison Tomkinson (Carlsbad), Andrea Voigt (Eastlake), Chelsea Weedman (Cathedral Catholic).
Outlook: Carlsbad goes for a repeat championship in Division I after claiming its first title ever a year ago. Perennial powers Rancho Bernardo and Torrey Pines should challenge. In Division II, Cathedral Catholic seeks its third straight title and fourth in five years, pushed by Mt. Carmel and La Jolla.
