SOUTHERN SECTION SWIMMING ROUNDUP: C.V. BOYS WIN PACIFIC.

Byline: Erik Boal Special to the Daily News

The Crescenta Valley High of La Crescenta boys' swim team extended one of the area's longest running league-championship streaks Thursday at Pasadena City College.

Unfortunately for C.V.'s girls' team, its run of dominance in the Pacific League was halted by Arcadia.

Chris Sherman defended his titles in the 50- and 100-yard freestyle events and James Martin won back-to-back crowns in the 100 backstroke and 100 breaststroke to lead the C.V. boys' team to its 13th consecutive league title with a 418-375 victory over Arcadia.

The C.V. girls' team received two victories from sophomore Sara Sun, but it wasn't enough to lift her team to a share of an eighth consecutive championship, as Arcadia prevailed 318-282.

Sun had another record-setting effort in the 200 free (1 minute, 52.83 seconds) - lowering her own mark from Tuesday's prelims - in addition to winning the 100 butterfly (59.96).

In other prep swimming:

MARMONTE LEAGUE

--T.O.'s two tough: Thousand Oaks senior Bob Howe clocked region-leading times of 21.56 and 47.91 to win titles in the 50 and 100 free, leading his team to a 433-396 victory over host Westlake at the league finals.

In the girls' competition, junior Vanda Gyuris doubled in the 100 butterfly and 100 free and freshman Alex Henley won titles in the 200 IM and 100 breaststroke to lead Thousand Oaks to a 450-357 victory over Westlake, which received victories in the 200 and 500 free from freshman Aislinn Smalling.

MISSION LEAGUE

--Strong trio: Matthew Majcher, Brock Roverud and Patrick Simpkins all won individual league titles and contributed to victories in the 200 medley and 200 free relays for Crespi of Encino at the league finals at Van Nuys Sherman Oaks Park.

In the girls' competition, Harvard-Westlake of Studio City senior Alexa Merz doubled in the 50 and 100 free, and Notre Dame of Sherman Oaks senior Tatiana Blankenship won the 200 IM and 100 butterfly. Blankenship's freshman teammate Annie Stefanec captured the 100 backstroke.

FOUNTAIN LEAGUE

--Dominant effort: La Reina of Thousand Oaks won all 11 events in the girls' competition to cruise to a 598-354 victory over Viewpoint in the league finals at the Rose Bowl Aquatic Center.

Emily Bibb doubled in the 50 and 100 free, Laura DeCesare captured the 100 butterfly and 100 breaststroke, and Brianna Blanchard was victorious in the 200 and 500 free for La Reina, which lowered its own league record in the 200 medley relay (1:56.16).

The Viewpoint of Calabasas boys' team held off Milken Community of Los Angeles in the 400 free relay 3:43.51 to 3:45.93 to rally for a 455 1/2-454 victory and the league title.
