Last May, Bell High star swimmer Helen Salcedo finished second to Granada Hills' Kristine Quance in the 200-yard individual medley and the 100-yard breaststroke at the City finals in Long Beach. Friends and relatives tried to console Salcedo after the breaststroke, her specialty, pointing to 1993 as the year she would finally beat Quance.
