Roadrunner Aquatics continued its success with four victories, including two from Constanze Moseley, in the second day of the Central California Junior Olympics Swimming Championships at Bakersfield College on Saturday.

Moseley won the girls 200-meter freestyle in 1:49.17 and the girls 100-meter butterfly with 55.85 seconds in the 15-18 age group.

"It was pretty cool," said Moseley. "I was racing a lot of tough competition, it was a good experience and I'm really happy with both of my swims. It was thanks to my training. I've been working super hard and it's just being tough and pushing through it."

The other winners for Roadrunner Aquatics were Isabella Garcia and Robert Moseley. Garcia won in the girls 200 freestyle with 2:07.87 for the 10-and-under age group, and Robert won in the 400-meter individual medley in 4:20.76 in the 13-14 age group

The other top performances for Roadrunners Aquatics were Noah Salcido in the 400-meter individual medley, the 13-14 girls relay team and the 15-18 girls relay team. Salcido took second in the boys' 400-meter individual medley for the 13-14 age group with a time of 4:36.12.

He also finished third in the boys 200-meter freestyle with 1:55.85. The 13-14 girls relay team finished in third with 2:04.99, and the 15-18 relay team also finished in third with 1:55.12.

Bakersfield Aquatics Club did not have as good of a day, but did have some good performances as well.

Aiden Pike took third place in the boys 100-meter butterfly with a time of 53.51 seconds of the 15-18 age group. Jaycee Pastma finished in fourth in the 50-meter backstroke in 35 seconds, and Jom Sontamino finished in second place in the boys 200-meter backstroke with a 1:57.95 in the 15-18 age group.

"I think I did pretty good," said Sontamino, who is from Thailand but now swims for Highland High. "My time in the finals was a little disappointing, but I think I did my best. I think (my experience) have been pretty good. I have learned some new techniques and I think it's pretty cool."
