In this rivalry, it’s all green.
Port Angeles’ boys swimming and diving squad took down the host Sequim Wolves last week, dominating the final regular season meet on Jan. 23, 140-42.
Despite the lopsided loss, Sequim head coach Linda Moats saw reason for optimism with a number of swimmers earning personal bests.
Eric Prosser led the Wolves with their only first place swims, topping the field in the 100 backstroke and 200 IM. Prosser improved his individual medley mark (2:17) by one second and is just 4.3 seconds off a state-automatic qualifying time, and he shed three seconds from his 100 back mark (1:05).
Christian Goodrich had a second-place swim in the 50 free and earned a personal best in the 100 free.
Others earning personal bests included: Jared Kneidl (100 and 200 free), Wendall Lorenzen (100 breastroke, 200 IM), Daniel Newell (50 free) and Zak Robinson (100 back).
Patrick McCrorie led Sequim’s diving crew with a season-high 108.75 points, good for fourth against Port Angeles’ tough diving crew.
McCrorie joined Joe Cameron, Aaron Farnell and Tyler Ebert in the 200 free relay and came within three-tenths of a second of Sequim’s 200 free swimming squad.
The Wolves enjoy a bye this week and prepare for the divisional championship, set for Feb. 4 in Port Angeles.
