    McLaughlin grabs bronze at Pan Pacific champs

    August 21st, 2014, 10:46 am by BY DAN ALBANO

    Santa Margarita senior swimmer and reigning Register female athlete of the year Katie McLaughlin claimed a major international medal Thursday at the Pan Pacific Championships in Gold Coast, Australia.

    The 17-year-old from the Mission Viejo Nadadores club finished third in the 200-meter butterfly with a lifetime-best time of 2 minutes, 7.08 seconds, eighth fastest in the world this year.

    McLaughlin's time also ranks second all-time for U.S. girls in the 17-18 age-group, just off the Kathleen Hersey's 2008 age-group record of 2:06.96.

    American Cammile Adams, 22, won in 2:06.61 while Japan's Natsumi Hoshi, 24, took the silver in 2:06.68. Adams became the first U.S. woman to claim gold in the 200 fly at Pan Pac's since Summer Sanders in 1991.

    McLaughlin also likely claimed a spot on the U.S. team for next summer's FINA World Championships in Russia. The Register's reigning female swimmer of the year emerged from the Phillips 66 Nationals Championships and Pan Pacific Championships -- the two qualifying meets for Worlds -- as the No. 2-ranked American woman to Adams in the 200 fly.

    July 12th, 2014, 5:07 pm by BY ANTONIO MORALES

    The bracket-makers for Edison's "Battle at the Beach" passing tournament on Saturday didn't do Los Alamitos any favors.

    In the Griffins' bracket was defending Open Division state champion St. John Bosco, Open division regional runner up Centennial of Corona, and 2012 Division 2 state champion Serra of Gardena.

    Los Alamitos went 1-2 in group play and 1-3 overall, but secured one of the biggest upsets of the day when it defeated St. John Bosco, 20-19, in the first round of pool play.

    Leading the way was junior quarterback Jack Telenko, who looked stellar against a young, inexperienced St. John Bosco defense.

    Telenko is transfer from Tesoro.

    McMorris cleared the state-qualifying mark of 57-09 in the shot put when he recorded a 58-07.00 on his final throw of the day.

    In the discus, McMorris threw for a state-leading 192-11. McMorris was the only boy in the CIF-SS to move on to state in both events.
