Olympic Divisional Meet

- This review was prepared by Coach Linda Bingler 10/19/06   MEET RESULTS    PG 2    PG 3


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:

All relays showed an improvement.  Staci Stratton and Lynn Leigh Hall participated in diving today.  Lynn Leigh dove well the first 8 dives, but did not qualify for finals.  Staci (new to diving this year) qualified for finals and finished 3rd over all.

We swam against Olympic High School today and won with a score of 110 to 75.

Stephanie Reed in the 100 fly and 100 back

Wolves Pace Redskins

- This review was prepared by Coach Linda Bingler 10/05/06              MEET RESULTS


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 don’t normally swim.  There were a few surprises such as Medea Bernsten in the 200 IM dropping 7 seconds, Rebekah 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, Medea Bernsten in the 200 IM, Rebekah Harasick and Katie Gallauher in the 50 free, Sarah Stuart in the 100 free with a best time, Medea Bernsten in the 500 free with a best time.


Stacia 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 place.




Spartans Tops Wolves

This review was prepared by Coach Linda Bingler 10/3/06                        MEET RESULTS  


  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 follows:


State qualifying:  Staci Stratton in the 200 IM and 100 free.

District qualifying:  Medley relay A, Justine Textor, Medea Bernsten and Phoebe Haglin in the 200 free, Justine Textor, Sarah Hardy and Persephone Nelson in the 50 free, Mackenzie Marmol in the 100 fly, 200 free relay A, Mackenzie Marmol in the 100 back, Meredith Powell in the 100 breast, and 400 free relay A.


Best times included:  Justine Textor in the 200 free by 12 seconds, Phoebe Haglin in the 200 free by 1 second, Staci Stratton in the 200 IM by 1 second, Louise Showers in the 200 IM by 1 second, Persephone Nelson in the 50 free by 1 second, Sarah Stuart in the 100 fly by 1 second, Phoebe Haglin (1 minute, 17 seconds) and Persephone Nelson (30 seconds) in the 500 free.


The divers performed well and finished 1st, 3rd and 6th.  They are all continuing to improve.


The girls are performing very well at this point in the season.  We are swimming Port Townsend on Thursday where we will give some of the girls a rest and allow others to compete that have not had as many opportunities this season.


Sarah Moores and Stephanie Reed are on the disabled list for the time being.

Girls Swim Well, Seahawks Slightly Better

- This review was prepared by Coach Linda Bingler 9/14/06                        MEET RESULTS



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

Justine Textor, Medea Bernsten, and Sarah Stuart in the 50 free

Justine Textor in the 100 fly

Rebekah 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

Staci 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 Stacia’s 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 Bremerton on Sept. 28th.
