BAINBRIDGE — The Roughriders discovered why the reigning Class 3A state champion Spartans are a contender for an eighth overall state championship on the road Wednesday.

The Riders held their own, picking up a second-place finish in the 200-yard medley relay (Harper McGuire, Mackenzie DuBois, Yau FU and Brooke St. Luise.

Later in the meet, the 200-free relay team of Lizzy Shaw, Sara Wilson, Rachel Cooper and DuBois earned another second-place finish.

McGuire earned district qualifying times, debuting in the 50 free in an impressive 26.92 seconds, and earning third in the 500 free.

“Quite a few PA swimmers took home district qualifying times in their season opener,” Cole said. “Two noteworthy times were attained by freshmen Lynzee Reid and Lizzy Shaw in the 200 free proving that Roughrider swimming is in good shape for the future.”

Other district qualifiers were: Danika Asgeirsson in 200 free and 100 backstroke; Cooper in the 100 breaststroke, DuBois in the 200 individual medley and the 100 breast; St. Luise in the 100 back; Wilson in the 100 butterfly and 100 back and Yau Fu in the 500 free.

Port Angeles’ dive team swept the top three spots in that event with Fu in first, Grace Possinger second and Reid in third.

The Riders swim at home against Klahowya on Wednesday.
