ATHLETE OF THE WEEK: Sequim swimmer Sonja Govertsen

Sequim’s Sonja Govertsen, just a sophomore, had a fantastic state 2A swim meet on Nov. 11.

First, Govertsen finished fourth in the 50-yard freestyle with a time of 25.24 seconds. Then, she finished sixth in the 100-yard freestyle with a time of 55.78. Those two performances alone garnered 28 points for Sequim.

To add an exclamation point, she helped the Sequim 200-yard medley relay team finish 11th in the state (along with teammates Sydnee Linnane, Sydney Swanson and Jasmine Itti) with a time of 1:59.54, picking up another 12 points. Thus, Govertsen played a part in all of Sequim’s 40 points at the state meet, helping the Wolves finish 18 at state out of 34 schools.

Athlete of the Week is brought to you by the sports department at the Peninsula Daily News along with the sponsorship of Swain’s General Store serving Clallam and Jefferson counties since 1957.
