My oh my: a tie!
The Tides turned out to be too strong for the Bainbridge Spartans to overcome.
Even so, the Spartans held steady to secure a 93-93 tie with Gig Harbor in girls varsity swimming & diving last week.
Bainbridge won seven of 11 races, but the Tides picked up major points in the 200-yard freestyle relay and the 400-yard freestyle relay to finish the meet in a draw.
The Spartans had a stout start in the Gig Harbor matchup, with the terrific team of Margaret Hayes, Annalisia Tuinukaufe, Siena Levan and Sydney Sorensen taking first place in the 200-yard medley relay with a time of 1:56.39.
Emma Solseng picked up a win in the 200-yard freestyle, with a first-place finish of 1:58.98.
Eden Michael was first in the 200-yard individual medley, winning in 2:23.99.
Naomi Howard claimed second place in the race, in 2:27.00.
The Spartans snagged their fourth race win in a row when Xaveria Rodriguez won the 50-yard freestyle in 25.61.
The Tides returned with wins in 1-meter diving and the 100-yard butterfly.
Bainbridge picked up another first place with Hayes winning the 100-yard freestyle in 53.85.
But Gig Harbor collected firsts in the next two races; the 500-yard freestyle and the 200-yard freestyle relay.
Bainbridge wasn’t done for the night, however.
Hayes placed first in the 100-yard backstroke (1:01.46), and Rodriguez was first in the 100-yard breaststroke (1:12.79).
The Tides tied the meet with a win in the 400-yard freestyle relay.
