Lisa Jacob, a senior swimmer from Capistrano Valley High School, has made the rounds this year. First, the Pan American Games, where she excelled. Then, the Olympic trials, where she didn't. After all those months of competition against some of the best in the world, wasn't it time to retreat to high school swimming for a little low-key fun? Some rest and relaxation on a level where she could win with one arm tied behind her back? Not for Jacob; there's nothing low key about the way she swims.

The anchor leg of the boys' 400-yard freestyle relay is a touchy subject for Villa Park High School's Gavin Arroyo. It seems his touch has been a tad late recently. "I lost (the relay) to Foothill by a tenth of a second and at San Marino I got out-touched again," Arroyo said. But Arroyo touched first Saturday at the Foothill Invitational Swim Meet to give Villa Park the victory in that event. Capistrano Valley was the overall-combined winner with 360 points and it also won the girls' team division with 241. Host Foothill won the boys' division with 144 and Villa Park was second at 133. Arroyo was obviously pleased to let someone else fret over a close second-place finish.

When Mission Viejo teen-ager Lisa Jacob earned a berth on the Canada Cup team last August, she was pleased. At last she would reap the rewards of long hours of training by joining the United States national junior team on an international trip. But before Jacob traveled to Vancouver last month for the Canada Cup, she had passed the junior team by, having swum fast enough at the Spring Nationals in Federal Way, Wash.

The fastest 50-meter freestyle swimmers in the world last year were Americans Matt Biondi, Tom Jager and Steve Crocker. But only two of them will advance from the Olympic trials, March 1-6 in Indianapolis, to the Olympic Games, starting July 25 in Barcelona, Spain. In response to U.S. swimming dominance, FINA, the world governing body of the sport, decreased the number of entrants allowed each country from three per event to two in 1980. Other international meets followed suit.
