Maria Carrillo's DiRado shines again

Posted by: Staff Writer Eric Branch

Maria Carrillo junior Maya DiRado (above) set two individual meet records and was part of a record-setting relay team at the Tom Wilson Invitational swim meet in Pleasanton on Saturday.

OK, so it was just the second annual Tom Wilson Invitational. But DiRado, as usual, was plenty impressive.

DiRado, who qualified in three events at last summer’s U.S. Olympic Trials, won the 200-yard individual medley in 2:06.16 and captured the 100 butterfly in 56.28. She was also part of the winning 200 freestyle relay team, which finished in 1:42.61.

DiRado won the 200 IM at the North Coast Section championships last year.

The Pumas’ Neda Kazemini won the 100 free and Karissa Derousseau finished second in the 100 backstroke and 100 breastroke.

Maria Carrillo finished fourth with 256 points. Mission San Jose won with 502.
