Girls swimming: Sequim earns three state meet entries


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’ 200 medley relay is seeded 16th overall in the 2A classification, while Sequim’s 200 free relay is seeded 19th.

Sundin has a 100 backstroke time with a 1:10.12 — a mark she earned while placing seventh in the event at districts — and is seeded 21st overall.

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.

SHS sophomore Natalie Cross placed ninth at districts in the 500 free (6:28.97) and 10th with a 200 free time of 2:23.99.

Robinson was 11th in the 100 free (1:02.17) and 14th in the 50 free (28.23), while Nelson placed 16th in the 100 butterfly (1:16.90).

Sammamish won the district meet with 253 team points, with Port Angeles in second (169) and North Kitsap third (150).
