When Brawley Union High School Norwegian exchange student Petter Malvik decided to go out for the school's swim team, he wasn't sure exactly where he'd fit in.
Coming to a country with a strong swimming tradition, Malvik wasn't sure if he would make the varsity.
Well, not only did he make the varsity, but in the team's first two meets of the season, Malvik set three school records and recorded three CIF San Diego Section postseason consideration times.
On Wednesday at Point Loma in San Diego, Malvik swam the 500-meter freestyle in 6 minutes, 9.13 seconds to set a school record and a CIF consideration time.
The previous week at Cathedral City, the 18-year-old senior set school marks in the 200-meter individual medley in 2:21.11 and the 100 backstroke in 1:03.82. Both were CIF consideration times.
