The Spartans raced to first place in the crucial events of the 200-yard freestyle relay and the 400-yard freestyle relay to sideline Lakeside 95-91 late last week in girls varsity swimming & diving at the Bainbridge Aquatic Center.

Both the Spartans and the Lions won six events each, with the first race of the meet — the 200-yard medley relay — going to Lakeside (1:54.66).

Right behind Lakeside was the Spartan foursome of Siena Levan, Hannah Tonsmann, Moorea Eldon-Everts and Hannah Lee. Their second-place time of 1:55.95, like Lakeside, was quick enough to qualify for the state 3A swimming championships. The state qualifying mark is 1:56.00.

Tonsmann claimed the first victory for Bainbridge High as she won the 200-yard freestyle in 2:00.94.

Bainbridge also placed first in the 50-yard freestyle, with Margaret Hayes finishing in a state-qualifying time of 24.65. (The time needed for a trip to the 3A championships in Federal Way is 25.25.)

Jackie Helmers placed first in 1-meter diving with a finals score of 203.05. Teammate Bryn Tiernan was second with a score of 167.90.

Hayes also finished first in the 100-yard butterfly with a state championship time of 59.27 (the state qualifying time is 1:00.60).

The Spartan relay team of Xaveria Rodriguez, Lee, Tonsmann and Hayes won the 200-yard free relay in 1:41.14 — well in front of the state qualifying time of 1:44.00.

Bainbridge clinched the meet win in the final race of the meet, the 400-yard free relay.

The Spartan fantastic four of Hayes, Naomi Howard, Zeya Korytko and Rodriguez shot to first in a state 3A championship time of 3:46.22. (The qualifying time for state is 3:48.00.)
