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).
