1 Young Tae Seo highlights banner day for himself, Falcons, May 12, 2012 — Seo and the Crescenta Valley High boys' swimming team finally captured first prize at the elusive CIF Southern Section Division II Swimming and Diving Championships at Riverside Aquatics Center for the program's first CIF crown since 2000.
Individually, Seo won the 500-yard freestyle in 4 minutes 28.95 seconds and the 100 breaststroke in a mark of 55.91 that was just .10 of a second off his own meet record set in 2011.
It came down to the final event — the 400-freestyle relay. The Falcons needed a victory in the race to capture the title.
Seo, who teamed with Harrison Thai, Louis Wojciechowski and Edward Yi, anchored the final leg of the event and out-touched Damien's Jason Haney by .42 seconds to give the Falcons a meet-record time of 3:05.50 and give Crescenta Valley a 301-293 win against Damien.
