Walnut boys end 24-year drought by wining the CIF-SS Division 3 swimming title

The Eagles won the 200 medley relay to open the Division 3 championship meet on Thursday evening at the Riverside City College’s Riverside Aquatics Complex. But the Eagles were disqualified for a swimmer leaving the blocks too early and Walnut won the race.
It was the difference in the meet. The Mustangs won by 10 points.
