Walnut, CA – The Lady Chargers swim and dive team wrapped up the Mt. San Antonio College Invitational with the highest team finish in recent history; 3rd place (17 participating teams).
Highlighting the Chargers was freshman Ariel Burns who annihilated the competition with a 1st place finishes in the 50-yard backstroke and 50-yard butterfly. Teammate Leigh Hodgson dove her way to two first place finishes as well, sweeping the Mt. SAC dive events.
