The Olympic League Divisional Meet was held today at the
Port Angeles pool. This meet is designed for those who have
not qualified for Districts to have a chance to do just
that. It was a lot of fun and all of the girls on our team
swam better than they have all season. Team standings were
not calculated because the meet was limited to a portion of
each team rather than the entire team.
Our team placed in 7 of 12 events. We took first in the
200 Medley Relay and 400 free relay. Participants included:
200 Medley Louise Showers,
Kira Hendricksen, Sarah
Stuart, Phoebe Haglin
400 Free Louise Showers,
Danika Duncan, Sarah Hardy, Stephanie Reed
Girls who qualified for Districts include:
Katie Gallauher 200 free
Stephanie Reed 200 IM and 100 free
Sarah Stuart 100 fly
Girls who swam best times include:
Katie Gallauher, Louise
Showers, Persephone Nelson, Meredith Powell
Sarah Stuart, Phoebe Haglin
Louise Showers, Persephone Nelson

3rd over all.
Districts are next. All but 1 swimmer has now qualified for
Districts in at least 1 event.

Today we swam against Port Townsend. Because they only
have 10 swimmers, we predominantly swam our JV as
varsity and reduced the number of relays entered to have
a more balanced meet. It worked well as the Port
Townsend swimmers placed 1st in half the
events and many of the races were very competitive.
This helped all the competitors achieve best times. I
also swam most of the girls in events they dont
normally swim. There were a few surprises such as
Bernsten in the 200 IM dropping 7 seconds,
Harasick obtaining a best time in the 50 free,
Persephone Nelson dropping 7 seconds from her best time
in the backstroke that she just obtained a couple of
meets ago. Overall, the girls
competed the best I have seen this season with
excellent effort on their turns and finishes.
Justine Textor obtained a
best time in the 100 fly with a time of 1:06.44, just
0.45 seconds away from the state time.
Staci Stratton qualified for
her 7th State individual event in the 500
free with a time of 5:35.30.
District qualifiers included: Phoebe
Haglin in the 200 free,
Bernsten in the 200 IM,
Rebekah Harasick and
Katie Gallauher in the 50
free, Sarah Stuart in the 100 free with a best time,
Bernsten in the 500 free with a best time.
Bibler nearly broke 200 with
a score of 194.9 in diving. Staci
Stratton dove varsity today
for the first time and scored 126.45 points for 3rd

We swam against Bainbridge today and lost with a score of
Bainbridge 100, Sequim 78. Being the great sports that
Bainbridge swimmers, divers and coaches are, they swam
exhibition only in the last three events, allowing the score
to look pretty reasonable. We did have many great swims as

will give some of the girls a rest and allow others to
compete that have not had as many opportunities this season.

Girls Swim Well, Seahawks Slightly Better

We swam against another large school in our league,
Peninsula HS, and although we swam well, we were outscored.
The final score was 102-84.
The meet was held in a 25 meter pool, so all of our times
are in meters rather than yards this time. Please disregard
the distinction of qualification in the actual results
because the meet scorekeeper thought we were a 3A school.
We had two State Qualifying times this meet with Sarah
Moores in the 200 free (2:19.12)
and Staci Stratton in the 200 IM
(2:39.64). We had 14 district qualifying times as follows:
Stephanie Reed 200 Free
Bernsten, and Sarah Stuart in the 50 free
Justine Textor in the 100
Harasick in the 100 free
Mackenzie Marmol in the 500 free
200 free relay A and B
Sarah Moores and Mackenzie
Marmol in the 100 back
Stratton and Meredith Powell in the 100 breast
400 free relay A
The divers scored 1st, 3rd and 5th,
although the results do not show that. There was an error
on Stacias final score, that
when corrected put her in 1st place.
Overall the team is improving and dropping times. I look
for ward to our meet against
on Sept. 28th.

We had our first meet today against Port Angeles. As in the
past, PA had many more swimmers than we had, but the final
