The Spartans took first in eight races to beat Bishop Blanchet 126-59 in girls varsity swimming & diving late last week at the Bainbridge Aquatic Center.

The big win was followed by a Senior Night salute for the team’s nine senior swimmers: Milena Broom, Moorea Eldon-Everts, Corinne Grayson, Lisanne Kaebisch, Zeya Korytko, Ghenwa Ramadan, Xaveria Rodriguez, Delaney Taylor, and Jillian Webb.

The Spartans started the meet with a win in the 200-yard medley. The fiercely fast foursome of Naomi Howard, Emily Hung, Margaret Hayes and Sydney Sorensen cruised to first in 1:56.14.

Korytko secured second place in the next race, the 200-yard freestyle, with a district-qualifying time of 2:09.63.

Howard won the 200-yard individual medley for Bainbridge in 2:24.48, and the Spartans went one-two-three in the race with Lucy King (2:30.14) and Kylie Jones (2:31.00) winning second and third place, respectively.

Bishop Blanchet’s Ella Haskins won the 50-yard freestyle with a state-qualifying time of 24.91, but the Spartans’ Solseng was right behind, taking second place with a 3A state time of 24.99.
