Swimming update: Bainbridge beats 4A Skyline, diver qualifies for stateOctober 17th, 2012 by Annette Griffus
In a non-league, triple-dual swimming meet at Roy Williamson pool, the Bainbridge Spartans beat Class 4A Skyline, the three-time defending state champions, 137-49 on Wednesday.
Bainbridge also beat Bellevue 141-45. Skyline defeated Bellevue 102-83.
Bainbridge held the meet just one day after an electrical fire at the pool.
I wasn’t at the meet, and I’m not sure how Skyline set its lineup, but I think it’s a quality win for the Spartans. Bainbridge also had seven individuals make state-qualifying times as well as two relays (200 and 400 freestyle relays).
Also, Bainbridge junior diver Shannon Engelbrecht qualified for state at an 11-dive meet at Juanita HS on Saturday. Engelbrecht finished second out of all divers (4A, 3A, 2A) and was first in 3A with a score of 382.2.
At last year’s state meet, Engelbrecht placed sixth. She was fourth as a freshman.
