Golden Valley High School senior Connor Hoppe will get his chance to break a national record at this weekend’s Sac-Joaquin Section Swimming Championships after all.

The Sac-Joaquin Section announced that a three-member executive committee voted to allow Hoppe to swim at the section meet at Tokay High School in Lodi.

Connor’s brother, Cameron, will also be allowed to swim.

Both were ruled in ineligible for competing outside of their high school team.

The school will be fined $1,000 for administrative oversight, section spokesperson Will DeBoard said.

We’ll have more on this story as soon as information becomes available.
