The Tracy Tritons broke three records last weekend, June 12 and 13, at the Oakdale Invitational swim meet, hosted by the Oakdale Gators at the Royse Memorial Pool in Oakdale.

Malia Fernandez, 8, beat the old record in the 7-and-8-year-old girls 25-meter freestyle. She finished with a time of 17.10 seconds, beating the record of 17.34 seconds. That put her in second place in the event after Jadyn Shinn of the Ceres Dolphins, who had a time of 16.75 seconds to set the new record.

Malia and teammates Megan Gee, Caitlin O’Neill and Emma Ronquillo also set a meet record with their first-place finish in the 7-8 girls 100-meter freestyle relay, where they logged a time of 1:15.72.

Setting a meet record in the 9-10 girls 200-meter freestyle relay were Tritons swimmers Madeline Loggins, Maddie Wittkowske, Kamryn Lucero and Keiana Fountain. They took first place in their event with a time of 2:24.61.

The Tritons finished in second place in the team points, with the Ripon Sea Lions, the Mid-Valley Swim League leaders, taking first with a team score of 904½. The Tritons scored 578 team points, the Ceres Dolphins 381½, the Sea Dogs 322, the Manteca Dolphins 186 and the Oakdale Gators 186.
