Over the weekend at state swimming championships, Hickson represented Saddleback well. On Thursday at the competition, James Hickson combined with Marcus Schlundt-Bodine, Pat Moore, and Chris Woods to lead the team to a sixth place finish in the 400-yard Individual Medley Relay with a time of three minutes and 32.56 seconds.

On Friday, he finished tenth in the 100-yard backstroke with a time of 53.89 seconds. On Saturday, Hickson finished eighth in the 200-yard backstroke with a time of one minute and 59.86 seconds.


  Last Monday Kelly exploded with two homeruns and three runs batted in to lead the Gauchos to a 12-0 victory over Citrus. Two days later the freshman from Northwood High School in Irvine had two hits in a losing effort to Riverside City College. 

  Kelly also joined her sister Sarah and fellow teammates Lauren Molina and Starr White on the All Conference teams. Kelly made the Orange Empire Conference second team.

The Gauchos will host College of the Canyons this Saturday Night at 7 p.m. for game one of a best of three game series, to advance in the Regional playoffs.
