Boys swimming/diving: Wolves finish strong at 2A divisional meet

 

Sequim Gazette staff


Two Sequim swimmers are moving on to districts while their teammates last week got one more meet to earn personal bests.

 

Eric Prosser and Markus Petersen will compete at the West Central District meet in Renton Feb. 14-15, with Prosser in the 200 individual medley and possibly the 100 backstroke, and Petersen also in the 100 backstroke.

 

The rest of Sequim’s Wolves capped their season at a divisional meet in Port Angeles on Feb. 4.

 

Sequim’s 200 free relay team — Petersen, Prosser, Christian Goodrich and Zak Robinson — nearly qualified for districts with a time of 1:54.30, their best time this season. Petersen finished his leg in 28.02, three seconds faster than any of his previous 50 free splits.

 

Robinson dropped 15 seconds off his best time in the 100 breaststroke.

 

“He looked very strong throughout the race,” Sequim head coach Linda Moats said.

 

John Schroeder dropped five seconds off his best time in the same event.

 

Four Wolves (Goodrich, Robinson, Wendall Lorenzen and Daniel Newell) earned personal bests in the 50 free while Petersen took first in the 200 free with a 10-second personal best.

 

In diving, Sequim’s Patrick McCrorie scored five points higher than his best. Moats said Sequim’s divers — McCrorie, Joe Cameron, Tyler Ebert and Grant Witherell — dove well and are excited about next season already, Moats said.
