The Kaiser swimming dynasty rolls on.

The Cougars girls team won its eighth straight OIA championship on Saturday, getting what their coach called a total team effort.

Mari Yasumi and Jill Chaffee were the only Kaiser girls to win individual golds, the same number they had in last year’s victory.

This edition of Cougars don’t have a dominator like Corrine Shigeta or Kira Fox, just a group of girls who squeeze every point out of their bodies.
