Following their first loss of the season, Sequim (3-1) swam to its third victory on Sept. 28, at the YMCA of Sequim over last place Bremerton (0-4).

The 98-73 win was Sequim’s fifth victory in a row, in five years, over the Knights.

Sequim’s Jasmine Itti cut 0.5 seconds from her 50 free time, which puts her within about 0.5 second from a state-qualifying time while Meguire Vander Velde qualified for districts in the 200 free (2:15.16).

A few swimmers cut double digits from their best times with Aubree Young gliding 17 seconds faster in her 500 free from her time last year and Heidi Schmitt soaring 14 seconds in the 200 IM.

Several other girls continued to set personal bets including Bailey Cauffman dropping 0.5 seconds from her 50 free, and 1 second from her 100 free, Aleah Chen 2 seconds in the 50 free, Claire Cronin 1 second in the 50 free, Chloe McKay cut 1 second from her 50 free, and Amanda Murphy 1 second in the 100 free. Sydney Swanson also cut 1 second in her 100 breaststroke (1:19.89), which she qualified for districts already.

Looking ahead

The Wolves host Klahowya (1-3) on Oct. 5, their final home meet of the season. They’ve defeated the Eagles two years in a row. Sequim is at Port Angeles on Oct. 12 and North Kitsap on Oct. 19.

The Divisional Invitational, where swimmers have one more opportunity to qualify for the postseason, is set for Oct. 24 at Port Angeles.
