2017 Rancho Girls Swimming Capsule


Head coach: Ti’Ara Blais, first season

Top athletes: Olivia Johnson (Sr.), Sophia Johnson (Fr.), Astrid Villeda (Jr.), Natalia Escalante (Jr.), Megan Lawrence (So.), KeiKai States (So.)

Outlook: The Rams are hoping to show improvement this season.

“We had limited numbers last year, but high numbers and high hopes this year,” Pemberton said. “Rancho could be well represented in postseason swimming. We finally have the high number of participants, and they are highly motivated and skilled. We will be focusing a majority of our time on skill technique and the rest on speed.

“Everyone is going to see a new and improved Rancho Rams swim team this season.”
