Maddy Delore of the Alameda Islanders set six new Islander records and Morgan Truong also set a new team record for 13-14 boys 100 yard breast at the Zone 2 Championships, which were held February 20-21 in San Ramon.

Forty-three Islanders swimmers competed at the Cal High School Olympic Swim Center over a stormy and rainy weekend with 27 other teams from Zone 2. Overall, Islander swimmers achieved 81 best personal times at the meet and finished eighth overall as a team.

All of these events plus her 50-yard fly qualified as Pacific Recognition Times (PRT), the highest standard in Pacific USS Swimming, and her 200 free was also a National Reportable Time (NRT).

Fourteen-year-old Morgan Truong also set a new 13-14 team record in the 100-yard breast (PRT) and achieved Far Western standards in the 100-yard free, 200-yard free, and 200-yard IM. Truong also achieved Junior Olympics (JO) standards in the 50-yard free and 100-yard back.
