Tesoro girls swimming coach Todd Conrad departing for Pennsylvania after stellar eight-year run

Tesoro High girls swimming coach Todd Conrad called it a “bittersweet” decision.

The former Orange County high school coach of the year and veteran club coach said Monday, Sept. 14 that he will be resigning and moving with his family to Pennsylvania.

“It was a hard decision,” he said, “but it’s the right move for the family.”

Married with two young sons, Conrad will relocate to Downingtown, a suburb of Philadelphia, and become the head age-group coach with Upper Main Line YMCA. The club has a silver medal-standing with USA Swimming and about 300 year-round swimmers.

“We’re excited to have a new adventure,” Conrad said.

He will take considerable experience on the trek. He guided Tesoro for eight seasons, leading the Titans to the past six consecutive South Coast League titles.

The Titans also have finished second to Santa Margarita at the past three CIF-SS Division 1 championships.

Conrad, the Register’s coach of the year in 2018, also was known for building tight-knit teams and his enthusiasm on the pool deck.

He has been serving as director of operations at FAST the past eight months. His signature post in O.C. club swimming was leading the Coto Coyotes for 14 years. He also was recently the general manager of the Mission Viejo Nadadores.

Conrad swam at UC Irvine and also coached with the Irvine Aquazot and Santa Margarita.

Swimming official Kieth Pike remembered for deck excellence during 56-year career

Kieth Pike, one of Southern California’s most experienced, respected and colorful swimming officials, died July 19 after a sudden bout with ketoacidosis, an acidic blood condition, his wife, Jo Ann, said Monday.

Pike, 84, started officiating high school meets in Southern California in 1962 and continued until 2017, the year he received the Ed Ruth Excellence in Officiating Award from Southern California Swimming.

“I respected him every time I had him deck,” veteran swimming official Richard Davis said. “I knew the deck was covered.”

Pike officiated the CIF-Southern Section swimming championships and was a fixture at Long Beach Wilson-hosted Klaus Barth Invitational.

The Westminster resident also officiated USA Swimming meets and high school water polo matches. He was past president of the Southern California Aquatics Federation.

“Kieth was one our best officials,” veteran referee John Montrella said.

Pike indeed spelled his first name Kieth, a unique flair picked by his mother.

Pike swam and played water polo at Long Beach Jordan High before serving in the Air Force from 1956-1962.

After the Air Force, he began working as the pool attendant/lifeguard at Long Beach Millikan High’s indoor pool. He balanced the position with his referee assignments.

“He enjoyed (officiating) because he was there for the students and the athletes,” Jo Ann said.

Pike met Jo Ann, his wife of nearly 35 years, while at the Long Beach Millikan pool.

He is survived by children, Keith, Kevin, Michael, Randy, Bryan and Wendi, ex-wife Suzanne and several grandchildren.

A funeral service is being planned for Riverside National Cemetery in August.

“His zest for life and laughter were contagious and irresistible,” the Pike family wrote in a tribute. “He was silly and loud, dedicated and strong, dynamic and deep. … Kieth’s voice will always be with us, cracking jokes, brightening our days and urging us to be be better.”

High school swimming could encounter boosts, challenges in comeback from cancellation


Support our high school sports coverage by becoming a digital subscriber. Subscribe now


California’s high school swimming season ended abruptly in the spring because of the coronavirus pandemic. It’s scheduled comeback in 2021 offers intrigue and challenges.

In other words, it could feel a lot like just another swimming season in Southern California.

And considering the health crisis that has raged since March, that normalcy would be a welcomed vibe.

“We’re just hopeful we can have something this year,” Santa Margarita co-coach Rich Blanc said this week.

The revised sports calendar by the CIF-Southern Section pushes the swimming season back about three weeks to a start on March 13, 2021. The season will then operate in nearly its regular spring window.

The Southern Section championships are scheduled for the week of May 24, the last week before Memorial Day. The state championships remain and slotted for June 4-5.

Part of the intrigue and benefit for swimming in the new calendar is that many boys will enter the season directly from water polo. The water polo season will end for most teams in early March.

Traditionally, the boys play water polo in the fall and have an extended break before swimming. But with essentially no break between seasons this school year, the boys could be excellence shape early in the swimming campaign.

“I bet in the first two weeks of the season, you’ll see their best times until league,” Villa Park consultant John Kulisich said.

The boys, of course, will make the same transition that the girls have made for years from water polo to swimming. The girls usually play water polo in the winter and move right into swimming.

The swimming season also might experience a rehearsal of sorts in November. USA Swimming’s TYR Pro Swim Series is scheduled to make a stop in Irvine at Woollett Aquatics Center, Nov. 12-15, 2020.

Coach Ken LaMont of the host Irvine Novaquatics said his club will work with health officials leading up the meet but knows the pandemic makes the future uncertain.

“We’re excited about the possibility of the meet,” LaMont said Friday.

The high school season will face hurdles with scheduling.

The calendar’s stretch into late May and early June could conflict with high school graduations.

And there’s the typical, Olympic-year consideration. The early June conclusion of the season will be close to the start of the U.S. Olympic Swimming Trials, June 13-20, in Omaha, Neb.

In past Olympic years, some elite high school swimmers alter their schedule and training in preparation of Trials.

“We will deal with it successfully,” Mission Viejo Nadadores coach Mark Schubert said the balance act. “I don’t think there is a negative.”

Yes, any type of comeback from a canceled season would certainly be a positive.

Villa Park diver Andrew Harness captures CIF Division 2 championship

Andrew Harness is finally a CIF-SS diving champion.

And so is Villa Park.

Three years after his promising freshman debut, the Texas-bound senior captured the CIF-SS Division 2 title Monday at Riverside City College to help kickoff championship week for swimming and diving.

Harness scored 610.35 points for his 11-dive list on springboard to outdistance freshman Nicholas Chaou of South Pasadena by just over 50 points.

As a freshman in 2016, Harness signaled his arrival with a runner-up finish in Division 1. The following spring, he was a narrow runner-up at the state championships to Jake Fielding of Maranatha.

Harness didn’t dive for Villa Park last season but has been a consistent winner this spring.

He is the first diver from Villa Park, a traditionally strong program in aquatics, to capture a section crown. The school has produced Olympic water polo players Josh Samuels, Gavin Arroyo, Doug Kimbell and Shea Buckner.

Harness is expected to dive Saturday in Riverside for a berth in the state championships in Fresno.

Late Tustin coach Cesar Altamirano honored at Empire League swim prelims

Late Tustin water polo and swimming coach Cesar Altamirano was remembered Tuesday as the Tillers raced in his honor at the Empire League swim prelims at Kennedy High in La Palma.

The meet held a moment of silence before the first race for Altamirano, 26, who died Sunday morning after sustaining injuries in a serious car accident in Long Beach three days earlier.

Swimmers also wrote the phrase, “Swim for Cesar!” on their arms with a marker.

Tustin vowed to dedicate the meet to the popular coach.

“Our kids did really well,” Tustin swimming and water polo coach Kyle Brawley said. “Lots of best times.”

Tustin’s Anders and Hayden Hundeby, a sophomore and freshman, qualified first-second in the boys 500-yard freestyle with times of 4:59.12 and 5:01.46.

Altamirano led the Tustin’s boys water polo team to the CIF-SS Division 6 finals in November. He also was a well-known coach at the SOCAL club, leading the 12-and-under boys.

A memorial fund for Altamirano has started and can be found here.

University boys, Santa Margarita girls claim titles at Foothill Swim Games

SANTA ANA A former powerhouse resurfaced. A dominant champion showed new wrinkles. And fresh faces emerged as major award winners.

Yes, the 47th edition of the Foothill Swim Games delivered just one meet record Saturday but was as entertaining as ever as the teaser for the CIF-SS championships in early May.

University’s boys re-emerged as an Orange County force by holding off Pacific Coast League rival Northwood for the boys title.

Santa Margarita’s juggernaut girls won a seventh consecutive title to gain even more speed for the championship season.

And Foothill’s Hunter Ingram and Woodbridge’s Jamie Yeh – now seniors from the Irvine Novaquatics – earned swimmer of the meet honors.

University took a seven-point lead over Northwood into the meet-ending 400-yard freestyle relay and challenged the school record with a winning time of 3 minutes, 6.02 seconds to capture the race and the meet with 377 points.

Northwood, the reigning CIF-SS Division 1 and state champion, placed a strong second with 358 points.

“We’re back, for this year,” University boys coach Ryan Vande Wydeven said. “We’ve been putting done some pretty incredible times throughout the season. .. We are a pretty solid team all-around. Definitely headed in the right direction.”

University’s 400 free relay of senior Aaron Lee (46.31), junior Hunter Kroll (48.65), junior Caedon Ng (46.33) and sizzling junior anchor Brian Lou (44.73) sealed the victory.

Lou, one of the fastest rising swimmers in the county, also anchored the Trojans’ medley relay to the victory in 1:34.83. He split an eye-popping 19.78.

He won the 50 free in a lifetime-best 20.45, ninth-fastest in county history.

Ingram rallied past Lou in the final 15 yards of the 100 free to win 45.22 but Lou still clocked a personal-best 45.40.

Lee delivered another individual title in the 100 butterfly (49.75).

“It’s all of us getting older and stronger,” said Lou, who joined the Novaquatics in September.

Santa Margarita showcased two weapons that could play prime roles in its pursuit of a sixth consecutive CIF-SS Division 1 title.

Mackenzie Degn, a senior bound for Cal Baptist, held off Tesoro standout freshman Katie Crom to capture the 500 free in 4:49.39.

Crom’s long and smooth stroke held together at the end to bring her to the wall in 4:50.10.

Santa Margarita’s Katie Nugent, a junior, stayed hot the 100 breaststroke by edging Cal-bound Emma Davidson of Yorba Linda by 14 one-hundredths of a second with a lifetime-best 1:03.13.

The Eagles also set the lone meet record with a 3:24.76 in the 400 free with Degn, freshmen Linday Ervin, senior Miranda Renner and Indiana-committed junior Ella Rictic.

The Arizona-bound Ingram also won the 200 free in 1:38.53. The Yale-bound Yeh clocked a pair of 55s in victories in the 100 butterfly (55.21) and 100 backstroke (55.50).

Foothill’s Samantha Pearson outdueled Santa Margarita fellow junior Ella Ristic to claim the 200 free (1:46.78) and 100 free (50.12). Pearson narrowly missed Ristic’s meet record in the 200 free by six one-hundredths of a second.
