Swimming News

The College of San Mateo athletic teams will not play at another Northern California location this season. They can thank their winning ways for that. All of their remaining competition prior to any participation in the state championships will be at home, making for a busy first two weekends of May at their hilltop campus.

The athletic programs at College of San Mateo decided to play a game of one-upmanship on campus last week.

There are three weeks left in the regular season for the College of San Mateo swim team, and based on recent results, a successful postseason appears to be in the picture for both the men’s and women’s squads.

The College of San Mateo is inducting its first class into the school’s athletic hall of fame, led by Oakland Raiders legend John Madden.

On September 23, at 4pm, College of San Mateo will honor nine decades of its athletic legacy when it dedicates the Athletic Hall of Fame Plaza during a ribbon cutting ceremony. Sixteen former athletes and coaches will be inducted in the inaugural class of inductees and their names will be enshrined on granite and bronze pillars permanently on display in the Plaza.

Chan and Najdawi star in state swim finals; locals prep for start of baseball and softball postseason; Track & Field sets new college and personal records

In the 2010 version of the JC baseball post season, College of San Mateo and Cañada College entered as favorites after winning their respective divisions. While the Colts stumbled early, the Bulldogs were able to ride their No. 1 seed all the way to the state championship — a series they lost to Ohlone College. This year, with visions of Bakersfield in mind, both teams will have work with lower-than-accustomed seeds.

Ex-El Camino standout Najdawi and Mills alum Chan lead Bulldogs to program’s first Coast Conference title; both stars set to compete in three events at state championships.

For the first time in school history, the College of San Mateo women’s aquatic team is a champion. Down 91 points to De Anza College at the start of the Coast Conference championships on Thursday, the Bulldog women erased that deficit, winning 11 of 18 events and capturing a total of 15 medals to win their first ever championship.

A state qualifier as a swimmer in the spring, Najdawi became the first-ever All-American water polo player to play for the Bulldogs. Quite impressive for someone whose high school — El Camino-South San Francisco — didn’t offer water polo.
