When last we checked in on Jack DesCombes, he had just finished competing in the “AA” long course championships in Ventura, and was headed to the 40th Annual Semana Nautica in Santa Barbara over the Fourth of July weekend (while his family graciously allowed us to spend the holiday at their place on Balboa Island).
Swimming for the Cota De Caza Coyotes, all Jack did at Santa Barbara was win the 13-year-old division 50-yard freestyle, 100 freestyle, 100 backstroke, 100 breaststroke, 100 butterfly, 200 individual medley and 400 IM, and was second in the 200 breaststroke and 200 butterfly. With the seven first place finishes and two seconds, he captured the overall meet individual championship for the 13-year-old boys division. Congrats Jack, and good luck at the Junior Olympics.
