Port Angeles' Macias advances to two finals
FEDERAL WAY — Port Angeles swimmer John Macias advanced to the finals in the 200-yard individual medley and the 100-yard backstroke.
Macias, a junior, took second in the 200 individual medley with a time of two minutes and 2.15 seconds in Friday's 2A state preliminaries at King County Aquatic Center.
He also placed fourth in the 100 backstroke with a time of 56.17 seconds.
Fellow Roughrider Jay Liang advanced to the finals in the 100 breaststroke after taking seventh in the prelims with a time of 1:05.97.
Colton Olson was the only Port Angeles diver to make it to the semifinals, where he placed 19th with a score of 158.50.
Sequim's lone state qualifier, junior Eric Prosser, concluded his season with 20th-place finishes in the 200 individual medley and 100 backstroke.
“Eric looked good in practice all week and his times were great. He also looked great in warmup today, but I think his nerves got the better of him,” Sequim coach Linda Moats said following Friday's preliminaries.
“So, although he was perfectly capable of swimming great races today, he just didn't.
“We were disappointed, but he still placed 20th in both events in 2A over the entire state and we are proud of that.
“He'll do better next year, I'm sure of it.”
