SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the SC Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.

The San Clemente girls volleyball and boys water polo teams each stayed on top last week in their league competitions.

Catsimanes Takes Second with PR at Dana Hills
San Clemente senior Hana Catsimanes took second place with a personal-record time of 16:44.9 at the Dana Hills Invitational on Saturday, Sept. 28.
Second place was no shame in this one, with Canyon Crest Academy’s Carlie Dorostkar destroying the meet record by nearly 19 seconds with a time of 15:57.5 in the three-mile race.
Catsimanes committed and accepted a scholarship offer to Wake Forest last week.
