Carly Geehr first met Olympian Amanda Beard last February at the Senior Nationals in Buffalo, N.Y. But unlike the fans who watched Beard, Geehr raced against Olympic silver medalist in the final of the 100-meter breaststroke. Geehr, a 12-year-old La Canada resident who trains with the Rose Bowl Aquatic Club in Pasadena, has burst on the scene in the last year.

Peter Egan of Santa Monica won the Huntington Beach Open Pier Swim so easily Saturday that two-time defending champion Henry Wise attributed the victory to what he thought was Egan's world-class background. "He's a hot swimmer," Wise said. "He swam in the Olympics for New Zealand, I think." However, Wise was mistaken. Egan, a 36-year-old freelance television writer, originally from Kansas City, Mo., has no Olympic experience.

It was a hectic day for Chad Carvin. Not only did he have to battle Los Angeles International Airport traffic Thursday, but he also had to deal with the Southland's freeways before swimming his first event of the Swim Meet of Champions at the Marguerite International Swim Center. But the former Laguna Hills High standout was able to get it together and win the first event of the four-day meet, the 800-meter freestyle.

Race day is also a change of pace day. During the week, legions of chlorine-hating swimmers take to the cool waters of the La Jolla Cove to enjoy a relaxing splish-splash with nature. Either solo or in loosely organized groups, members of the La Jolla Cove Swim Club commune with sea life and admire marine fauna during open-water workouts. But that changes on race day, when a swimmer's focal point is to keep from getting kicked in the head.

When announcer Don Brandley told spectators at the 22nd Foothill Swim Games they would be witnessing some fast times at Foothill High, most in the stands seemed unfazed by the announcer's prediction. But at day's end, even Brandley was surprised at some of the times turned in. Overall, four records were set, some nearly broken and some of the season's fastest times in Orange County were recorded at Saturday's meet. In team competition, El Toro was first overall with 582 points.
