Los Altos High swimmers, from left, Danielle Carter, Gabrielle Anderson, Hana Brett and Anne Piercy competed in the state championship meet last month in Clovis. All of them advanced to the finals, placing 13th or better.

No girl from Los Altos High qualified for last year’s inaugural state swimming and diving championships, but four members of the team made it this season.

Sophomore Gabrielle Anderson, freshman Danielle Carter and juniors Hana Brett (11) and Anne Piercy advanced to the finals of the two-day meet, held May 21 and 22 at the Clovis Olympic Swim Complex.

Spartans vault to the top of CCS

The Mountain View High gymnastics team last week claimed its first Central Coast Section title. Front, from left: head coach Kayla Chee and assistant coach Youlee Lee. Middle: Melissa Pinker, Natalie Rockhold, Elaine Silverman, Sheila Steiner and Lexy Mitchner. Back: Cindy Linker, Brette Miller, Allison Evans, Nomi Rosen and Madison Ruweler.

Mountain View High last week did what no team has done since 1999 – beat gymnastics juggernaut St. Francis at the Central Coast Section championships.

The Spartans ended the Lancers’ 16-year reign as CCS champion May 18 at Gymtowne in South San Francisco. But it was close: Mountain View scored a 149.750 and runner-up St. Francis totaled 149.299.

Strong start for Spartans

Mountain View High senior Elaine Silverman, competing in last week’s season-opening meet, placed first all-around.

Forgive coach Kayla Chee for not realizing how big of a deal it is that her Mountain View High gymnastics team defeated St. Francis in last week’s season-opening meet.

Having moved to the area from Hawaii last summer, she didn’t know that the Lancers have won the last 16 Central Coast Section championships – or that the Spartans had never beaten them before.
