Wolves open with win

Sequim's swimming crew started the season on a positive note, splashing the Klahowya Eagles 85-56 on Thursday, Sept. 16, in Silverdale.

Three Sequim individuals earned district-qualifying times, as did both of the Wolves' 200 medley and 200 free relay squads.

Wolf Paige Pearsall swam to district-qualifying marks in the 100 butterfly (1:12) and 200 individual medley (2:32), as did Rachel Hardy in the 50 free (27.68) and Gianna Vennetti in the 100 breaststroke (1:24).

Cassandra Calderon picked up a win in the 100 free and helped both 200 free and 400 free relay teams earn first-place swims.

Sequim took first in nine of 11 events.

"So many of our brand new swimmers had great swims in their first ever swim meet," said Sequim coach Susan Craig. "It was exciting to see them jump right in and get it figured out to be assets to the team. I especially love to see their great team spirit and how they cheer and support their teammates."

Though neither team had any divers compete, Craig said she hopes to see Sequim have one or two divers in upcoming meets.

The Wolves were slated to swim at Bremerton on Sept. 21 - results were unavailable at press time.

Sequim hosts Kingston in the first home meet of the 2010 season at 3:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 23, at the Sequim Aquatic Recreation Center. Sequim is at Port Townsend a week later (Sept. 30)
