I’m back in Federal Way for the second day of the state boys swimming and diving meet at the King County Aquatic Center.
The Class 4A meet is done and Newport of Bellevue won the team title with a score of 215.5 points, followed by Issaquah (171) and Gig Harbor (169).
Thomas Anderson, a sophomore from Federal Way, setting a state record in 48.10 seconds in the 100-yard backstroke. Anderson broke Thane Maudslien’s time from last year of 48.56. Maudslien is a Kennedy graduate and is a freshman at the University of Arizona.
Kitsap didn’t have any swimmers make the finals.
The 2A meet begins at 2:30 p.m. followed by the 3A meet at 6:30 p.m.
UPDATE: The 2A meet is underway and Port Angeles won the consolation finals in the 200 medley relay in 1:47.19. North Kitsap finished 13th overall in 1:49.31.
In the 200 IM, Kingston’s Kevin Fox finished 13th in 2:09.76. PA’s John Macias was fifth in 2:02.08.
Through four events, Steilacoom leads the team standings with 76 points, followed by Archbishop Murphy (70) and Lindbergh (69). Port Angeles is ninth (32), North Kitsap is 23rd (8), Kingston is 25th (6) and Klahowya 27th (4).
In the 100 butterfly, Fox placed 13th in 57.10 while PA’s Wei-Yan Fu was 12th in 56.92. The 200 free relay saw Kingston’s 200 free relay place 11th in 1:37.35 and NK’s relay was 12th in 1:37.38. Macias was also fifth in the 100 backstroke in 56.07.
In the 400 free relay, PA placed 11th in 3:31.43.
That’s it for 2A.
Up next is the 3A meet at 6:30(ish)… the meet is running behind.
The 3A meet has begun and Bainbridge has two swimmers on the podium already. Spencer Alpaugh finished seventh in the 200 IM in 1:57.59 and Marcus Tonsmann was eighth in the 200 free in 1:48.25.
Tonsmann also finished 13th in the 100 fly in 53.38. The Spartans 200 free relay placed eighth while the sixth place finish by Sam Alpaugh in the 100 back, CJ Waite’s sixth in the 100 breast (along with the ninth place by Keenan Grant and Bill Lee) helped lead Bainbridge to a fourth-place finish in the team standings.
The Spartans may have started slow, but with such a strong finish, and plenty of talent coming back, don’t be surprised to see Bainbridge make another run at the medal stand next year.
That’s it for swimming this year. The 2014-15 season will kickoff in November with the girls meet.
