The postseason begins with a Divisional Invitational in Port Angeles on Oct. 23, when Sequim and other league athletes look for more district meet- and state meet-qualifying times.

Qualified swimmers compete at the West Central District meet scheduled for Nov. 2-3 at Hazen High School in Renton.

The state 2A swim/dive finals are set for Nov. 9-10 in Federal Way.
