Swimmer Earns National Title

Senior Celina Li earned top honors last weekend swimming at the AT&T Winter U.S. Nationals in Austin, Texas.

Celina finished first in the 200-yard individual medley and second in the 400-yard individual medley. She competed against former Olympians, including Missy Franklin, and a field of collegiate-level swimmers. Celina was among a select few high school competitors at the national-level competition.

In July of this year, Celina attended the U.S. Olympic trials. In May, she broke the 100-yard butterfly record at the 2012 North Coast Section competition.

Congratulations to Celina for her outstanding achievements. She'll be swimming with the Falcon swim team when the season starts in early 2013 and plans to attend UC Berkeley next fall.
