Last Friday 4/26 the League of Women Voters and the CIHS History Social-Science Dept held our second voter registration event of the year in the library. Upon the conclusion of Friday, we have 42% of the senior class that registered that day, 42% had previously registered to vote, and 15% were ineligible to register. 84% of the class of 2019 is registered to vote. A special thank you to Teacher-Librarian Kim Tahsuda, College & Career Center Tech Will Martin, and to the HSS teachers Mr. Bowman, Mr. Cole, Mr. Colvin, & Mr. Ramos.
Swim season ended last Thursday with League Finals at Buena High School. Admittedly, it wasn’t the meet we wanted, but such is sports. And as I told our team, one meet isn’t an entire season. We had an AMAZING season! I’m crazy proud at how hard the kids worked!

Individual JV scorers at league
• Brenda Estrada, 12th in the 200 free and 11th in the 100 free.

The varsity girls 4×100 relay of Leslie Cortes, Ceci Lopez, Brianna Vasquez, and Jessica Carballo knocked two seconds off our school record that was set last year by Leslie Cortes, Jessica Carballo, Alejandra Orozco, and Cristina Bunny Rodriguez. Earlier in the season, Ivan Romero made consideration for CIF in his 200 IM, but, unfortunately, did not make the final cutoff. He still leaves his mark on our record board with FIVE school records! Thank you to everyone who supported us this season, it means so much to the kids and to us, the coaches. Can’t wait until next year to do it all again!
