Fremont Flying Fish placed behind San Ramon Valley Livermore Aquatics, but were ahead of the Concord Terrapins, Orinda Polar Bears, Walnut Creek Aquabears, and the Pleasanton Seahawks.
The eight and under boys and girls relay teams won the free style and medley relays. Swimmers Andrew Ho, Vanessa Wang, Ashley Hsu (eight years and under); Justin Ho and Alexander Yaung (nine and 10 year olds); Brent Hsu (11 and 12 year olds); Jennifer Bone (13 and 14 year olds) were selected to participate in the All Star swim meet on March 6 based on their outstanding performance at the zonal championship meet.
