It’s on to state for four Wolves after posting strong times at the West Central District meet in Renton last week.
Seniors Melanie Byrne, Hi’ilei Robinson and Lauren Sundin join freshman Melia Nelson as they compete in the 200 medley relay and 200 free relay events at the state 2A meet, set for No. 12-13 at the King County Aquatic Center in Federal Way.
In addition, Sundin will be competing in the 100 backstroke.

The Wolves earned the three state wildcard seeds after placing 10th overall in a 14-team district meet.
The Wolves’ quartet of 200 medley relay swimmers won their B heat final and had the sixth-best time (2:10.54), and similarly won their B final in the 200 free medley with a 1:57.90 effort, the meet’s fifth best final time.
