In swimming Saturday:

Tesoro’s No. 3 girls and Mater Dei’s No. 3 boys captured their first titles at the Capistrano Valley Relays.

The Titans scored 106 points to outdistance defending CIF-SS Division 1 champion Santa Margarita (96) and reigning CIF Division 2 champion Crean Lutheran (68).

Tesoro trailed Santa Margarita by 30 points based on a scoring of prelims but rallied for victories in the 4x100-yard individual medley (4 minutes, 1.44 seconds), 4x50 butterfly (1:46.19) and 400 free (3:32.49).

“It’s pretty awesome,” Tesoro coach Todd Conrad said of the title. “It was a lot of sheer will and determination.”

The Titans took the lead for good by capturing the 400 free as Casey Brotherton and Jessica Epps rallied in the final two legs. Jessica’s anchor (52.69) held off Crean Lutheran’s Elise Garcia (49.79) and Santa Margarita’s Samantha Shelton (50.13).

Mater Dei’s boys scored 108 points to edge No. 1 Santa Margarita at 106.

The Monarchs clinched the victory by placing second to Santa Margarita in the final two events: the 400 free and 200 medley. Grant Shoults blasted a 44.89 anchor for the Eagles’ winning 400 free (3:12.02) but Mater Dei (3:14.07) held off Corona del Mar thanks to a 45.30 anchor by Christian Hockenbury.

At the boys Millikan Southern Section Relays:

Loyola of Los Angeles won the meet-ending 200 medley relay in 1:36.60 to edge University, 240-238, for the title at the Joint Forces Training Base in Los Alamitos. Loyola overcame a disqualification of its winning 6x50 free relay. Newport Harbor won the race to prevent a seven-race sweep by Loyola and finished third overall (222).
