Local teen girls set swim record for Catalina Channel

SAN DIEGO - A team of six 14-year-old girls from the East County set a record Sunday for being the youngest all-female relay team to swim the Catalina Channel.

The Catalina Dream Team 14 in 14 completed the 21-mile swim from Catalina Island to San Pedro in eight hours and 11 minutes.

They encountered dolphins and got a few jellyfish stings along the way, but the girls are now resting comfortably Sunday evening.
