For the third year in a row, Sequim girls swimming took down the Klahowya Eagles head-to-head.

Sequim (4-1) won 100-65 on Oct. 5 at the YMCA of Sequim and finished its long homestand.

The win puts the Wolves in a three-way tie for second place in the Olympic League with Olympic and Port Angeles behind North Kitsap (5-0).

Several girls continued to pare down their best times against the Eagles with some of them inching closer to state- and district-qualifying times. Sequim took first in seven events including the 200 medley team of Sydnee Linnane, Sydney Swanson, Sonja Govertsen, and Jasmine Itti (2:02.55).

Linnane took first place in the 100 backstroke (1:10.82) and cut about one second from her district-qualifying time.

Govertsen qualified for districts in the 200 free (2:10.36) and cut her 100 free time slightly (56.64).

Itti took first in the 50 free (26.89) and Swanson first in the 100 breaststroke (1:20.49).

The 400 free relay team of Ana Benitez, Heidi Schmitt, Amanda Murphy and Annabelle Armstrong also won their event with a time of 4:37.88.

Several other swimmers cut their best times this meet too including: Aubree Young who cut 8 seconds in the 500 free (8:21.40); Sydney Van Proyen cut 7 seconds in the 100 free (1:27.81) and 2 seconds in the 50 free (38.64); Kaitlyn Davis cut 3 second in the 200 free (3:00.04) and 1 second in the 50 free (37.33); Heidi Schmitt cut 1 second in the 100 free (1:07.69); Quinnlynn Young cut 3 seconds in the 100 free (1:59.84) and 1 second in the 50 free (50.94); Madeline Patterson cut 0.5-of-a-second in the 50 free (34.60); Claire Cronin cut 0.5-of-a-second in the 50 free (34.25); and Olivia Barrett cut 2/10-of-a-second in the 50 free (39.76) and cut 4 seconds in the 100 free (1:32.51).

Looking ahead
