Dana Hills’ reigning CIF-SS Division 1 champion boys swimming team has found its coach.
Carrie Pierce, the Dolphins’ girls water polo coach in the winter, will guide boys swimming squad in the spring, she said Tuesday.

Rosa guided Dana Hills to its first section title in 2017 with a narrow victory against Loyola of Los Angeles. The Dolphins were Division 1 runner-ups in 2015-16.
