Sequim scored 115 points over the Buccaneers’ 54 with three relays

“It was awesome and amazing to see how well our swimmers performed,” said head coach Anita Benitez.

Three relay teams qualified for districts which Benitez said has never happened.

The 200 medley of Isa Benitez, Sonja Govertsen, Sydnee Linnane and Anna Mieche swam 2:09:37 to surpass the 2:20:00 districts time and are about 7 seconds from a state qualifying time.

The 200 free relay qualified too at 1:55.71, with Jasmine Itti, Govertson, Linnane and Mieche, and the 400 free relay swam a 4:39.24 with Isa Benitez, Joie Darminio, JayceeThompson-Porrazzo and Itti.

Three relay team members qualified for districts in indivudal events. Govertson qualified in the 100 free (1:02.21) and 200 IM (2:37.23), Linnane in the 50 free (28.02) and 100 back (1:13.34), and Mieche in the 100 breaststroke (1:19.10) and 200 IM (2:33.55).

The Wolves defeated Kingston 97-73 in 2015 but lost to them 101-82 in 2014.

Sequim traveled to Olympic High School on Tuesday, Sept. 20, and they’ll travel there again on Saturday, Sept. 24, for an invitational where Sequim’s top eight swimmers will compete.

The Trojans defeated Sequim 91-61 last year in head-to-head match-up.
