When Madera Coyote swimmer Ashton Gill won the County/Metro Athletic Conference championship Saturday at Bullard-Fresno, he set the time to beat in the Central Section.
Gill defeated the rest of the CMAC field in the 100 breaststroke with a time of 1:00.02 and earned the top seed at today’s Central Section championship preliminaries at Clovis West. Gill has a chance to become the Madera’s first individual swimming Valley champion, according to head coach Kevin Larrivee.
“Ashton has been chipping away with his stroke and speed all season,” Larrivee said. “He should do a lot better at Valleys. I’ve never had a top seed, so this is exciting. He has a chance to win.”
Gill is the Coyote record holder in the 200 individual medley and is second alltime in the breaststroke...
