Girls swimming: Sequim splashes Olympic to close league slate

Sequim’s swimming crew finished its 2021 regular season with a strong kick, upending the Olympic Trojans in Silverdale on Oct. 14, 121-36.

The Wolves, led by two individual wins apiece by Melia Nelson, Hi’ieli Robinson and Lauren Sundin, won all 11 events and swept the top three places in four events, and finished 4-4 in league dual meets.

Robinson earned district meet-qualifying times in the shortest event of the meet (50 free, 28.84) and the longest (500 free, 6:29).

Sundin had a district meet-qualifier in the 100 backstroke (1:13.83) and just missed another in the 100 free (1:05.74).

Nelson earned wins in the 100 breaststroke (1:27.86) and 100 butterfly (1:34.43).

Also earning wins for Sequim were Natalie Cross (200 free) and Julia Jeffers (200 individual medley).

Sequim’s 200 medley and 400 free relay teams earned district meet-qualifying marks in their wins as well.

Rivals edge Wolves in SHS’s final home meet

Swimmers from Port Townsend and Chimacum — competing together at the East Jefferson Rivals — topped a Sequim team hosting its final home meet of the season on Oct. 12, 100-71.

East Jefferson picked up wins in eight of 11 events, with Akeyla Behrenfield (200 IM, 100 free) and Juliette O’Hara (50 free, 100 breaststroke) each winning two events for the Rivals.

Sequim’s Robinson won the 200 free in 2:22.45 while Sundin cruised to a big win in the 100 butterfly in 1:14 — both district meet-qualifying marks.

Nelson added a win in the 100 backstroke (1:20.74) for the Wolves.

Coming up

Sequim swimmers seeking district meet qualifying times have one more meet — at the Last Chance meet scheduled for 3 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 26, at William Shore Memorial Pool in Port Angeles.

Qualifying athletes compete at the West Central District meet set for Nov. 5-6 at Hazen High School in Renton. Top district finishers, those with qualifying times and a few “wildcarded” entries advance to the state 2A meet, slated for Nov. 12-13 at the King County Aquatic Center in Federal Way.
