That quartet is headed by versatile senior Cathleen Penney, who placed third in the 200-yard butterfly as a junior, recording a school-record time of 2:05.56. The three-time SCIAC athlete of the year will compete in that event again, in addition to the 100 fly (57.16) and the 200 individual medley (2:06.59) – also events in which she holds the school record. Senior Andria Giovanni will compete in the freestyle events. She qualified in the 200 (1:55.22), but swimmers are allowed to compete in any event they wish once they qualify in one. The Bulldogs also will field teams in the 400 free and 800 free relays, with Penney and Giovanni on both. Junior Carley Naddy, sophomore Hailey Zehner and promising freshman Kelly Goeres will make the trip and help out in those events. The men’s competition will be held next week. Last month, Redlands won its seventh straight SCIAC title, but the Bulldogs’ lone representative will be Trevor Harp (Pacific High School). He will compete in the 50, 100 and 200 freestyles – Harp was conference champion in all three – and heads into the national meet seeded third in the 50. It will be his fourth straight trip to the national meet. CAL STATE TENNIS For the second time this season, Cal State San Bernardino’s Jennifer Joy earned CCAA player of the week honors. The junior from Palm Desert won both singles matches, one of them over Jenny Tsai of Cal Poly Pomona, ranked fifth in the region and No. 37 nationally.
