ATHLETES OF THE WEEK: Yau Fu, Port Angeles girls swimming; Tyler Swan, Neah Bay football

Our athletes of week the made their marks this weekend.

Port Angeles swimmer Yau Fu was a big part of a girls team that finished fourth at the state 2A championships this weekend, the 11th straight year Port Angeles has finished in the top 10 and the team’s highest finish since 2017.

Fu was part of all three relay teams — the 200 freestyle relay, the 400 freestyle relay and the 200 medley relay — that placed in the top six in the state, capping it off with a third-place finish in the 400 freestyle relay. Individually, she also placed sixth in the 100 butterfly. Fu had a hand in 99 out of the Roughriders’ 143 points.

Neah Bay football player Tyler Swan has become part of a potent one-two punch for the Red Devils’ running game. While Jodell Wimberley had a huge game with seven touchdowns, Swan was also a big contributor to Neah Bay’s 86-6 state playoff win with 107 yards rushing on five carries, including touchdown runs of 48, 29, 11 and 3 yards. He also had nine two-point conversions, personally accounting for 42 of Neah Bay’s 86 points.
