Freshman swimmer Raymond Kam had a stellar performance in Oakland over the weekend as he took home the Eagles’ lone individual victories at the Bay Area Invite on Oct. 22. Kam finished first in men’s 100-yard breaststroke with a final time of 1:00.50 and came away with the men’s 200-yard breaststroke title as well. Kam continues to provide Biolans a glimpse into the Eagles’ future as a viable NCAA Division II contender, as Kam outpaced several University of California Santa Cruz Banana Slugs on his way to a dominant day in the pool. Additionally, Kam was a top three finisher in four out of five events he competed in.


- 3rd in men’s 400-yard medley relay

- 1st in men’s 100-yard breaststroke

- 1st in men’s 200-yard breaststroke

- 2nd in men’s 100-yard butterfly

- 4th in the men’s 200-yard freestyle relay.
