It was a Bainbridge-based blowout.

The Spartans hosted Franklin at the Bainbridge Island Aquatics Center and won every event on the way to a 134-33 victory in boys swimming and diving late last week.

Bainbridge also swept the first-, second- and third-place spots in eight events; the 200-yard medley, 200-yard freestyle, 200-yard individual medley, 50-yard freestyle, 100-yard freestyle, 500-yard freestyle, 200-yard freestyle medley, 100-yard backstroke and 400-yard freestyle medley.

Logan McDaniel finished first in two events for the Spartans.

He led from the start in the 500-yard freestyle with a first-leg time of 28.46, and finished in a district-qualifying time of 5:10.92. (The state 3A qualifying time is 5:00.50, and McDaniel was nearly 30 seconds speedier than the district mark.)

McDaniel also won the 100-yard backstroke, finishing in 59.99, also a time good enough for districts.

The Spartans claimed first, second and third in both of McDaniel's best events.

In the 500-yard freestyle, James Bullock took second place for Bainbridge in 5:44.37. Teammate Jack Riley was third in 6:00.30.

In the 100-yard backstroke, Sam Alpaugh was second in 1:01.66, and fellow Spartan Keenan Grant was third in 1:03.78. Both finished faster than the district-qualifying time of 1:07.50.

Bill Lee, Nick Williams and Arthur Bacon won one, two, three in the 200-yard freestyle.

Lee and Williams came under the qualifying time for districts (2:06.90). Lee was first in 1:59.37, and Williams claimed second in 2:00.05. Bacon won third place in 2:13.18.

The Alpaugh brothers won first and third in the 200-yard IM, with teammate Marcus Tonsmann placing second.

Spencer Alpaugh was first in 2:04.99, Tonsmann was next in 2:14.89, and Sam Alpaugh finished in 2:18.74.

All three had times better than the district qualifying time of 2:24.50, with Spencer Alpaugh just a fraction behind the 3A state-qualifying time of 2:04.50.

Tonsmann also won the 100-yard butterfly in 59.51. (The qualifying time for districts is 1:06.00, while the state 3A mark is 55.40.)

Adam Comeau won second place for Bainbridge in the event, and finished in 1:01.37.

Comeau also took first place in the 50-yard freestyle for Bainbridge, in 25.13.

Nick Williams was second in 25.51, and Douglas Ortyn was third for the Spartans in 26.66.
