Girls swimming: Sequim crew swims to three finals at state

Sequim High sophomore Mia Coffman and her 400 relay teammates ended the season with a trio of strong finishes, scoring spots in B finals at the class 2A state meet in Federal Way last weekend.

Coffman placed ninth overall in the 500 free with a finish of 5:32.12.

She also placed 15th overall in the 200 freestyle with a time of 2:05.34.

Coffman joined teammates Lauren Sundin, Natalie George and Francesca Bargis as they qualified for the second day final, placing 16th overall with a finish of 4:08.81 — improving the quartet’s personal pre-state meet best by 7.5 seconds.

Sequim placed 24th overall.

Liberty (Renton) won the 2A girls state team title with 268 points, followed by Sammamish (264) and Anacortes (166). North Kitsap, the defending 2A champ, was the Olympic League’s top finisher at fourth place (159); Port Angeles was sixth (137).

“The girls had a great season,” Sequim coach Sarah Thorson said.

The Wolves went 5-2 on the campaign, third in the Olympic League.
