After tying with Las Positas for 2nd at the NorCal Relay meet earlier this month, the SRJC men showed their potential as one of the top teams in the north with a strong performance at the 20 team Hawk Invite last weekend at Las Positas College.
The team was led by freshman stand-out Bradley John Erickson who pulled the hat-trick with wins in the 100 Back, 100 Breast, ant 200 IM, he also took 2nd in the 200 Breast. Sophomore team captain Jesse Schmidt also won the 400 IM and took second in both the 100 and 200 IM's. Finally, freshman RJ Williams took first in the 50 Fly and 2nd in the 100 Fly.
Other strong performances came from: freshman Drew Sipple who took second in both the distance free events and third in the 200 Free, and sophomore co-captain, Brandon Miguel who took second in the 200 Fly and 5th in the 500 Free.
The Cubs now hope to take this momentum into their next meet, the Los Rios Invitational at Sac City College on 2/26, and into their mid-season peak meet in San Luis Obispo next month.
