Sequim’s Wolves may have seen their toughest foe to open the season.
Bainbridge’s Spartans showed why they are one of the top programs in class 3A — the Spartans haven’t finished lower than seventh at the state meet in more than a decade — with a 130-36 win over the Wolves on Sept. 9.
Bainbridge swept the top three places in nine of 11 events, led by Kathryn Houseman (50 free, 100 breast) and Sophie Sergerson (500 free, 200 IM), who earned two individual wins apiece.
Mia Coffman, a two-time state 2A qualifier for Sequim, earned the Wolves’ top individual finish by placing third in the 500 free with a finish of 5:55.27, a district meet qualifying mark.
Sequim’s 400 free relay team — Coffman, Natalie Cross, Melia Nelson and Lauren Sundin— also earned a third place finish, clocking in at 4:40.47.
The Wolves’ 200 medley relay team of Coffman, Nelson, Sundin and Melanie Bryne earned a district meet qualifying time of 2:11.91.
Sequim is back in action at Bremerton on Sept. 16 and at Klahowya on Sept. 21 before hosting North Kitsap’s Vikings on Sept. 23.
