The women’s swim team placed second at the Coast Conference Championship held at College of San Mateo April 19-21. The Rams’ finish was the best ever for City College at the Coast Conference Championship and an improvement from last year’s fifth-place result.

In the turbulent times of the 21st century, public higher education is a student in the school of hard knocks.

Sports Recap

The Rams closed out their 2011 season losing their last 13 games in a row. City College finished with a record of 5-29.

New team making splash in its first season
