Palo Alto sophomore Grace Zhao, led local swimmers in the trials. The defending champion in the 50 free and 100 breast was the top qualifier in each of her events, clocking 23.04 and 1:02.26, respectively, both automatic All-American times.
Zhao also led off Paly's 200 free relay that qualified No. 1 in 1:36.41. Zhao clocked a personal best of 22.99 to get the Vikings rolling.
The Gunn boys, meanwhile, had a record-breaking day. Junior Joao Ama didn't have the top qualifying times in the 50 or 100 free, but he erased some long-standing school records.
Ama had the No. 2 time in the 50 free of 21.14, breaking the school record of 21.42 by Brian Mead in 2000. Ama then erased the oldest record in program history when he clocked 46.07 in the 100 free, wiping out the 46.50 by Martin Pedley set in 1970.
Gunn's Trent Tosky lowered his own school record in the 200 IM by qualifying for the finals in 1:52.97. And, sophomore Michael Lincoln erased the school record in the 200 free from 1985 by clocking 1:40.88.
For the first time ever, the top three finishers in each event on Saturday, plus those meeting at-large qualifying standards, will advance to the inaugural CIF State Swimming & Diving Championships, presented by Farmers, set for May 22-23 at the Clovis Olympic Swim Complex at Clovis West High.
