PORT ANGELES — The Roughriders achieved individual state and district qualifying times and qualified their third and final relay for state against the Buccaneers at William Shore Memorial Pool.
Port Angeles (5-0, 5-1) also placed first and outscored Kingston in all 12 events.
Ashlee Reid swam the individual state time in the 200 freestyle with a time of 2 minutes, 8.38 second.
Jessica Burke qualified for districts with a time of 1:24.82 in the 100 breaststroke.

Kingston 7, Port Townsend 2
KINGSTON — Jewel Johnson gave the Redskins an early lead with a breakaway goal in the game's third minute, and nearly made it 2-0 in the 10th minute, but her shot went just wide.
“[We] were equal in the game for the first quarter, and it was close even at half time,” Port Townsend coach Colin Foden said following Tuesday's game. The halftime score was 2-1 in the Buccaneers' favor.
“Kingston has a fine team, and chasing their excellent passing caused [our team] to tire. Eventually, the dam broke and in the second half the goals came regularly.”
Foden was satisfied with how his squad defended and managed to create counter-attacking opportunities.
“The whole available squad spent at least some time on the field, and it was good to see such improvement from Pi Siripong, Bethany Goodenough, Rosemaryy D'Andera and Shenoa Snyder,” Foden said.
“Anne Meek, Malia Henderson, Jewel Johnson and Rebecca Stewart will always contend for player of the game, but [this game's] recognition needs to be given to Brenna Latchford for her tireless play in midfield.”
Port Townsend (0-10) hosts Klahowya (7-3) at Memorial Field on Wednesday, and then plays at Port Angeles (3-7) on Saturday.
Bellevue Christian 10, Chimacum 0
CHIMACUM — The young Cowboys, 15-strong on Tuesday, defended the Vikings well in both halves.
Defenders April Avila and Samantha Raines worked decisively to keep Bellevue Christian's offense in check in the first half, and the defense maintained its level of play in the second half.
Chimacum coach Debbie Berreth said goalkeeper Kyah McKinley was “a strong playmaker, setting up shots on goal for Mechelle Nisbet, Nicole Cerna and Holly Snider.”
The Cowboys play Wednesday at Seattle Christian.
New prep football poll
Neah Bay remains ranked No. 1 class 1B in the Associated Press football poll released Wednesday.
But the gap between the Red Devils and defending state champion Liberty Christian appears to be closing.
Last week, Neah Bay received 88 points and seven of nine first-place votes, while Liberty Christian garnered the other two first-place votes and 83 points.
In the latest poll, the Red Devils earned five first-place votes and 68 points overall. The Patriots, meanwhile, earned 65 voting points and three first-place votes.
This tighter vote comes after Neah Bay dismantled last week's No. 3 team, Lummi, 76-32 last week.

Quilcene football game postponed
Quilcene's homecoming football game with Muckleshoot, slated for Saturday, has been postponed due to a tragedy within the Muckleshoot tribe.
Rachel Givens, a para-educator and middle school basketball coach at Muckleshoot, passed away earlier this week after being struck by a car that did not stop in Sumner on Saturday, according to a report by PDN news partner KOMO news.
“Even thought it's our homecoming game, certain things take precedent,” Quilcene athletic director Mark Thompson told the PDN on Wednesday.
The football game has been moved to next Saturday, Oct. 19, at 1 p.m.
Both teams previously had byes scheduled for next week.
