Girls swimming preview: O.C. top 10 teams

STAFF WRITER

O.C. dual meet top 10 for the 2015 season.

1. Santa Margarita: The reigning CIF-SS Division 1 champion Eagles return several standouts, including O.C. athlete of the year Katie McLaughlin. A strong freshman class also will provide a boost.

2. Tesoro: The Titans return a ton of experience from last season’s league title squad but also boast some excellent freshmen.

3. JSerra: With transfer Sonia Wang joining a talented cast, count the Lions as title contenders in Division 1 and the Trinity League.

4. Crean Lutheran: Sisters Ella and Emily Eastin provide the 1-2 punch but the Saints’ depth continues to improve.

5. Corona del Mar: Meagan Popp leads a deep squad that added rising freshman star Eva Merrell.

6. Edison: The Chargers have their own duo in Nora Deleske and Taylor Newton plus solid depth. Division 4 champion Samantha Le is a transfer from La Quinta.

7. Foothill: Courtney Mykkanen paces a strong dual-meet squad loaded with fast water polo players used to winning.

8. Irvine: The Vaqueros already flexed their muscle by edging Mater Dei, beating Edison and capturing the Irvine City relays.

9. Mater Dei: Brittany Kampfer and Aislinn Light anchor a solid team that will face tough competition in the Trinity League.

10. Fountain Valley: Carly Perri headlines a Barons squad stock-piling young talent.

Also considered: Capistrano Valley, Woodbridge
