Miller qualifies for state at Lakeside meet

SEATTLE – Bainbridge won first place in the 200-yard individual medley, the 50-yard freestyle and the 100-yard butterfly but it wasn’t nearly enough to upend defending state champion Lakeside in girls swimming and diving last week.

The Lions, winners of the state 3A crown for two years running, won eight other races and also placed first in 1-meter diving to secure the win late last week, 112-73.

The Lakeside meet was the Spartans’ first return to racing since the Spartan Relays on Sept. 9, and marked a nearly two-week layoff in competition for Bainbridge.

Even so, it was a big return for the Spartans’ Erin Miller. The senior swimmer won the 100-yard butterfly in 1:00.68, a state-qualifying time in the event. (The state 3A qualification time is 1:00.70.)

Bainbridge also went one-two in the 50-yard freestyle, with Miller taking first place in 26.06, and teammate Hannah Tonsmann claiming second in 26.30.

Tonsmann also challenged in the 200-yard free, coming in at second place in 2:00.19 and just a few bubbles behind first-place swimmer Nathalie Valdman, who won in 2:00.15.

Bainbridge also won the 200-yard IM, with sophomore Moorea Eldon-Everts placing first in 2:23.36.

Lakeside posted state-qualifying times in two other races; the 100-yard free (Amy Tang, 51.82) and the 100-yard backstroke (Isabel Chien, 1:01.40).
