About the Swim Team
2012 The Lady Eagles placed 4th in the the Bay Valley Conference Championships with a young squad. So 2013 looks bright. The team is a part of the Bay Valley Conference which includes, Solano College, College of Marin, and hosted schools –Merced College, College of Sequoias, and Shasta College.
The 2011 team was one of the most successful teams Laney College has had in the past 5 years. The team placed 2nd in the Bay Valley Conference Swim Championships. All four relays placing 3rd and several top individual finishes.
In 2010 the Eagles placed 3rd only a 1/2 a point out of 2nd place. We had several top 5 finishes, 90% personal bests and an event winner in the 1650 Freestyle.
Swimming is a Spring sport. The season runs from mid January until the beginning of May. Practices are held at Laney College Monday- Friday and are TBA (contact coach for info). Meets are generally on several Friday and Saturdays during the season. Swimmers are expected to be at all practices and meets. If schedule/class conflicts occur contact the coach about other options.
