Update from SCS Western Region meet

Here’s what I know from the first couple days of the Speedo Championship Series (SCS) Western Region Meet that is ongoing at King County Aquatic Center in Federal Way this week.

None of our local swimmers have made the top 20, but at this point it’s all about progression.

Here’s a rundown on who is there and how they’ve fared so far:


Lia Campbell (Bainbridge Island Swim Club):  41st, 100-yard freestyle, 52.29 seconds.

Alison Murphy (BISC): 95th, 200 breaststroke, 2 minutes, 29.11 seconds; 98th, 200 backstroke, 2:11.89.

Candice Rosen (BISC): 127th, 200 breast, 2:37.36; 185th, 200 freestyle, 2:03.06.

Sam Lingenbrink (Bremerton YMCA): 74th, 200 back, 2:07.22.

Shayla Archer (BISC): 81st, 200 back, 2:07.95; 164th, 200 free, 1:58.15.

Kelsey Crane (Olympic Aquatic Club): 160th, 200 free, 1:58.00.


Spencer Alpaugh (BISC): 63rd, 200 butterfly, 1:57.33; 42nd, 400 Individual Medley, 4:09.08.

Marcus Tonsmann (BISC): 80th, 200 fly, 1:59.19.

I’ll have an update when the meet ends on Saturday.

Western Section SC Championship this week

The USA Swimming/Speedo Western Section short-course championship is this week at the King County Aquatic Center in Federal Way.

Olympic Aquatic Club and Bainbridge Island Swim Club will be participating.

The meet begins Wednesday with a 2 p.m. finals session. Thursday thru Sunday the prelims are at 9 a.m. and the finals at 5:30 p.m. The top eight individuals earn medals with the top three relays reaching the podium.

I’ll update throughout the week.

SPS Western Section LC meet continues through Saturday

After perusing the results list, I came up with one local swimmer at the Speedo Championship Series Western Section LC Championships this week in Gresham, Ore.

Olympic Aquatic Club’s Kelsey Crane was 63rd in the 200 butterfly in 2:30.61.

The meet continues through Saturday, so I’ll check back with another update if Crane swims again or we have other locals worth mentioning.
