State Swimming Finals Thread

We are underway for the finals of the state swimming and diving meet at King County Aquatic Center in Federal Way.

First up is the 3A classification, which for Kitsap includes Bainbridge and Central Kitsap.

Bainbridge’s 200 medley relay, Mikelle Ackerley (200 free, 100 free), Allison Murphy (200 IM, 100 back), Samantha Cara (100 free), 200 free relay, Ani Duni (100 breast) and the 400 free relay are all into the A finals.

Central Kitsap’s Leah Avery, who won the district title in the 100 backstroke, qualified for the B finals in the 200 IM today. Avery didn’t qualify for the finals in the back.

In the 200 medley relay, Bainbridge finished fourth in 1 minute, 51.47 seconds.

UPDATE: Bainbridge’s Carina Laukaitis finished 14th in the 200 free in 2:02.34 while Natalie Ackerley finished second in the B finals, 10th overall, in the 200 IM in 2:13.15.

UPDATE: In the 200 individual medley, Bainbridge’s Allison Murphy finished eighth in 2:11.85, Natalie Ackerley placed 10th (2:13.15) and Leah Avery of CK was 16th (2:19.49). In the 50 free, Samantha Caro of Bainbridge finished 11th. Through four events Bainbridge sits in fourth place in the team standings with 70 points. Lakeside-Seattle is first (131), followed by Mercer Island (104) and Bellevue (80).

UPDATE: In diving, the Spartans had two top eight finishers and both are sophomores. Cameron Rouser, of Kingston, placed fourth with 355.50 points and Zora Opalka was sixth (338.90). Bainbridge’s highest individual placer so far is Mikelle Ackerley. The senior finished third in the 100 free in 53.62. Former Bainbridge champion, Emily Silver, who won four 100 free titles (and four 50 free titles) still holds the state record in that event in 50.16 set in 2003.

UPDATE: Bainbridge’s Ani Duni finished fourth in the 100 breaststroke, breaking the school record of 1:06.04 by Tess Harpur in the process. Duni clocked a 1:05.94. Allison Murphy placed fourth in the 100 back in 1:00.33. Both Duni and Murphy are juniors.

All three of the Spartans relays placed in the top four with the 200 free finishing second in 1:39.60. The 400 free was fourth.

Overall, Bainbridge finished third in the team standings with 187 points. Lakeside repeated as champs, with a 281, followed by Mercer Island, 242.5.

Up next is the 4A meet which starts at 2:30 p.m.

UPDATE: In the 4A, Monkhouse finished fifth in the 50 free in 24.80. She’s the only Kitsap qualifier in this session.

The 2A meet starts at 6:30 p.m. as Klahowya’s Kelsey Crane will be eyeing a state title in either the 200 IM or butterfly.

UPDATE: At the 2A meet, Kelsey Crane finished second in the 200 IM and fifth in the butterfly. Kira was third in the 100 backstroke and sixth in the 50 free. The Eagles 200 medley relay was 14th while the 400 free relay placed eighth. It’s the first time the 400 relay had qualified and the girls were pretty ecstatic, albeit tired after a long two days.

Klahowya coach Diana Peterson was named the 2A coach of the year, the first time she’s won the award. The Eagles finished 11th overall in the team standings. North Kitsap placed 13th. Port Angeles was eighth; Port Townsend 15th; Sequim 33rd and Bremerton 30th.

North Kitsap’s 200 free relay was disqualified (they had two swimmers in the water during an exchange). NK’s Serita Solis finished eighth in the butterfly and Kingston’s Katherine Anderson was eighth in the 100 breaststroke.
