Thirteen meet records fell at the Hughson Sea Dogs Invitational Saturday, and nine of the new marks belong to area swimmers.

Matthew Trejo of the Manteca Dolphins broke three team records in individual events, and two of them are all-time bests in the invitational. Trejo was also the high-point finisher in the 7-8 boys division and led Manteca to a fifth-place finish with 457 points.

The Ripon Sea Lions edged out the meet host by 10 points (1,136-1,126) for the team title and were led by record-setters Corey Winter, Emma Lewis and Rosie Vaughn.

Trejo dominated on his way to three first-place finishes. He first set a new club record in the 50-yard freestyle in 33.29 seconds before leaving his mark in Hughson in the 25 butterfly (15.72) and 25 free (14.88). The old 7-8 boys 25 freestyle record was set in 1998.

Dolphins teammates Mallory Brubaker and Scott Tolman also eclipsed meet records.

Brubaker broke a 9-year-old record in the 9-10 girls division, winning the 50 free in 30.14. She was also second in the 100 individual medley and first in the 100 free en route to earning a share of the division's high-point title with Tracy Triton Madesyn Ronquillio.

Tolman was the 11-12 boys high-point runner-up to fellow Dolphin Ty Wells but came away with a new meet record in the 50 breast stroke (32.81). Wells won the 100 IM, 50 fly and 50 free.

Delaney Brubaker tied with Tracy's Liahla Fernandez for the top honor in the 6-under girls division, as she claimed the 25 fly and 25 free while placing second in the 50 free.

Rachel Holmstrom (second, 13-14 girls) and Darrel Yamamura (third, 13-14 boys) were other top-three high-point finishers for the Dolphins.

Lewis and Vaughn each paced the Ripon Sea Lions with three individual victories for high-point titles. Lewis broke a 15-year-old record in the 13-14 girls 50 backstroke, checking in at 31.16. Vaughn set a new record in the 15-16 girls 50 breast stroke in 32.49.

Winter ended up second in the overall high-point standings in 15-16 boys, but his two wins were record-setting efforts. His 100 IM mark of 1 minute, 44 seconds bested the old record which survived 21 years, and he shattered the 11-year-old record in the 100 fly in 57.83. The previous 100 fly record was clocked at 1:00.56.

Ripon's 7-8 girls 100 medley relay team was the first to break a record on the second event of the day, finishing in 1:18.27. The old record was set by an Oakdale quartet back in 1977.

Other high-point standouts for the Sea Lions were: Reese Hansen (third, 6-under girls), Rylee Beidleman (first, 7-8 girls), Sydnee Vieira (second, 7-8 girls), Noah Esenwein (second, 9-10 boys), Kaylie Sheaffer (third, 15-16 girls) and Matt Vasquez (second, 17-18 boys).

Mid-Valley Swim League action resumes July 9, with the Dolphins hosting Hughson and Turlock at East Union High and Ripon taking on Tracy at Ripon High.
