Champs come out swimming strong

We’re going back.

The Spartans gave notice during their first swim meet of the year by notching state-qualifying times in five events in their meet against Garfield late last week at the Bainbridge Aquatic Center.

Bainbridge — the defending 3A state swim champs — won 14 of 15 events to win the meet, 120-61.

And in the first race last Friday, the 200-yard medley relay team of Garrett Waite, Ian Lipton, Makai Ingalls and Andrew Witty place first in a state-qualifying time of 1:39.43.

Waite also met the state mark in the 200-yard individual medley, taking first with a time of 1:57.94.

The Spartans also dominated in the 50-yard freestyle by claiming first, second and third place. Ingalls was impressive, with a state time of 22.15 that was more than 2 seconds than his closest competitor.

Lipton took second in the 50-yard free (24.39) while Lipton claimed third place (24.46).

Both Ingalls and Waite also qualified for state during their first race this season in the 100-yard butterfly.

Ingalls was first in 52.31, with Waite right behind for second in 52.62.

Witty also wasted no time in guaranteeing a return trip in the 100-yard breaststroke to the state meet in Federal Way.

Witty won the race in a qualifying time of 1:01.55.

Multiple Spartan swimmers also finished their first meet of the season with times that lands them in district competition in the 200-yard freestyle, 200-yard IM, 50-yard free, 100-yard butterfly, 100-yard free, 500-yard free and 100-yard backstroke.
