Grant Shoults helped Santa Margarita’s top-ranked boys swimming team open its season with a victory Friday.

The Stanford-bound senior captured the 200-yard freestyle and 100 butterfly in automatic CIF Division 1 qualifying times, sending the host Eagles to a 114-56 victory against Fountain Valley.

Shoults clocked a time of 1 minute, 38.73 seconds in the 200 free and touched in 50.32 in the 100 butterfly. He owns the national private school record in the 200 free.
