Swimming & Diving


History

Santa Margarita Catholic High School Swimming and Diving has enjoyed a rich history of success since the team began during the school’s first year of existence in 1987. Since that first season in Spring 1988, the team has grown to over 140 student/athletes and the list of team accomplishments and nationally ranked student/athletes has continued to expand.

In October 2007, the Swimming and Diving team witnessed the inauguration of the beautiful Eagle Aquatics Center. An Olympic-sized 50 meter pool with a full Colorado Timing System set up and permanent bleacher seating for 500 graces the east end of the campus. The pool has hosted national-level water polo events and several major club swimming meets.

The success of the Swimming and Diving team is un-paralleled in Trinity League history and in Southern California high school swimming. Some achievements include:

  • 5 Consecutive (6 total) CIF-SS Division I Girls team championships (2014-2015-2016-2017-2018)
  • 2018 California Girls State Swimming and Diving championship
  • 2017 Swimming World magazine Prep School Girls National Champions
  • 2018 NISCA (National Interscholastic Swim Coaches Association) Girls National Champions
  • 19 Consecutive Girls team league championships
  • 11 Boys team league championships
  • 90 out of the 114 total team league championships (Varsity, Junior Varsity, and Frosh/Soph) since 2000
  • 54 Consecutive Dual Meet Victories, Girls Varsity (2011-present)

In the past several years, Eagle Swimming has set 4 National High School swimming records:

  • Ella Ristic, Mackenzie Degn, Anicka Delgado, Samantha Shelton, 400 Freestyle Relay, 3:18.26, 2017
