Jeremey Padilla Record Swim

PADILLA SETS RECORD-BREAKING SWIM
ONTARIO, CA; (03/15/2014): Senior Varsity Swimmer and two-time CIF Qualifier Jeremey Padilla broke Ontario High School's long-standing Men's 100yd Butterfly record at the 2014 Jag Swim Invite. Padilla swam his race just over eight tenths of one second ahead of the previously held record. His record-breaking 0:54.12 time was a credit to his extensive training and strength, both of which have continued to increase since he was a freshman.
