Sakonju’s team got the ball rolling with a win in the 200-yard medley relay in 1 minute 41.60 seconds behind Alaoui, Winterhalter, Jason Kim and Andrew De Jong.
The Falcons followed it up with strong performances in the sprint freestyle events, highlighted by a sweep of the top three spots in the 50 freestyle.
Winterhalter won the event in 22.76, Chris Veselich was second in 22.94 and Daniel Olson was third in 23.37.
Winterhalter also won the 100 freestyle in 50.36, while Veselich was third in 51.54.
“This year our sprint freestyle is really one of our assets,” Sakonju said. “We’re very deep and we’ve got lots of guys who can go really fast.”
Alaoui won the 200 freestyle in 1:48.09 and also came out on top in the 100 butterfly in 55.16.
“He’s always been an asset to the team and now it’s his senior year and we’re definitely relying on him to have some great performances,” Sakonju said.
The meet was clinched in the 200-freestyle relay, which the Crescenta Valley team of Winterhalter, Veselich, Olson and Tanner Kober won in 1:34.17. De Jong, Josh Chi, Rane Colvin and Thomson Gilles took second in 1:36.20.
The Falcons girls’ squad was buoyed by wins in the 200-individual medley (2:08.97) and the 500 freestyle (5:07.17) by So, the reigning All-Area Girls’ Swimmer of the Year.
So also teamed with Mackenzie Hobby, Julia Warden and Janelle Kim for a win in the 400-freestyle relay in 4:01.74.
Julia Warden turned in a first-place swim in the 100 freestyle (1:00.93) and Corinne Ingalla was a winner in the 100 breaststroke in 1:17.45. Jayhee An finished second in the 100 breaststroke in 1:18.05.
The Falcons also won the 200-freestyle relay behind Ingalla, Hobby, Warden and Kim Fraisse in a time of 1:52.34.
“Today, people started getting back to where they should be,” Falcons girls’ Coach Robert Miller said. “A lot of our girls’ times, they’re hitting right about where they were hitting at the end of last season, so we should be looking for some decent drops come the end [of this season]. They’re right on target.”
