BLYTHE, Calif. - The Palo Verde High School Yellow Jacket swim team hosts Imperial tomorrow at the PVHS pool in the final dual meet of the Imperial Valley League season with the league championships scheduled for next week in Brawley.

The Jacket swim team is relatively new to competition having been revived just a few years ago and competing against the larger schools with more participants makes team success rough at best.

The problem is much like the problem the Jacket track team faces when taking on schools that can put three to five competitors in each event.

"We have kids place in most events," said Jacket swim coach, Kim Valenzuela. "But they have more kids with more experience and that makes it tough to win as a team."

Matches against Brawley, Southwest, and Central have been blowouts against the Jackets while the Jacket boys have dominated Calipatria, Holtville, and Imperial in earlier meets while the Lady Jackets have been able to claim a pair of wins over Calipatria.

Palo Verde's Justin Hall has posted a consideration time in the 50-meter free style in a meet against Central in winning the event with a 23.86 time and has tomorrow's meet and the finals in Brawley to get down to the time of 22.8 that will earn him an automatic spot in the CIF San Diego Section meet.

Christian Evans, just a freshman, shows promise as well with solid performances in different events including the lone Jacket first in the meet at home against Brawley.

Joining Hall and Evans on the Jacket boys' team are Andre Bonnet, Frankie Hughes, Joshua Januscheski, Ricky Marquez, Justin McCoy, Trace Mefford, Chris Perez, Jesse Rangel, Riley Shields, and Nathan Tribby.

Members of the Lady Yellow Jacket squad are Brianna Birmingham, Maria Bugtai, Shelby Courter, Katie Huff, Alexis Morales, Kasandra Rascon, Frances Relampagos, Elizabeth Rizzotto, Lauren Rizzotto, Margaret Robertson, Starr Rojas, Savanna Selph, Sabrina Valle, and Nicole White.

Coach Valenzuela is pleased with the efforts of her charges and feels both the boys' and girls' teams have improved and will bring a solid core to build on with next years' team.
