Orange Lutheran’s swim teams had only two meets this season, competing against San Juan Hills and taking part in the Capo Valley Relays before spring sports were cancelled throughout the state because of the coronavirus pandemic.

“I’m a firm believer that some time away from sports helps with re-igniting passion and enthusiasm,” said Lancers Coach Ed Carrera. “Obviously I feel bad for our seniors who did not get a full season but they will be stronger because of this.”

Here are the seniors on the teams:

Ashley Savoie

Gianna Minasian

Delaney Demsher

Izzy Gazzaniga

Christiana Marchese

Paula Salazar

Joe Wang

Cameron Burns

Miles Wilson

Zack Baxter

Mason Killion

Riley Catino
