 The Gabilan and Pacific Division league swimming finals will hold their meets together Saturday at 10 a.m. at Hartnell College.
  Among the swimmers chasing league titles is Monterey standout Parker Costa, who placed eighth last year in the Central Coast Section 200 free finals.
 Costa will look to defend his league title in the 200 free, and sports the fastest time in the 500 free this year at 4:55.24.
 Challenging Costa in the 200 free is Nicholas Sullivan of Palma, who actually comes into the finals with a better mark this spring than Costa at 1:44.63.
 Sullivan will also be the favorite in the 100 free at 48.53. Teammate Sam Given has the swiftest 50 free mark (22.08) and is ranked second behind Cody Falconer of Salinas in the 100 breast.
 The Chieftains, who are the favorites with Given and Sullivan in two relays, will be joined by Mateo Trujillo, who has the top mark in the 100 back (59:30).
 Trujillo will chase Salinas' Kayne Doughty (54.82) in the 100 fly.
From a team standpoint, Salinas has showed its depth all season in coasting to an undefeated dual meet season in the Gabilan Division. Christopher will pose a challenge in the girls division.
 On the girls side, Miranda Wilson of Salinas will be the favorite in the 100 breast (1:13.13) and is ranked second in the 200 IM (2:21.75).
 Teammate Amanda Cavazos has the top mark entered in the 100 back (1:05.61) and is seeded No. 2 in the 100 fly (1:01.05), while Rachel Best is seeded No. 2 in the 200 free (2:09.10).
