SPORTS: Diver leads Port Angeles group advancing to Class 2A state swimming and diving finals

FEDERAL WAY — Junior diver Allison Hodgin leads a group of Port Angeles High School athletes who will compete in the finals at the Class 2A girls swimming and diving championships today.

Hodgin currently is in fourth place going into the finals that are scheduled for King County Aquatic Center starting at 1:45 p.m.

Two Roughrider relay teams and two divers finished in the top 16 in the preliminaries Thursday to advance to the finals today.

Hodgin is in fourth place while fellow diver Tanesha Jackson, a senior, currently is in 10th place for the Riders.

In addition, the 200-yard medley relay team is in 10th after the preliminaries with a time of 2 minutes, 1.41 seconds with freshman Ashlee Reid, senior Jenna Moore, sophomore Tracie Macias and junior Tarah Erickson.

The Port Angeles 200 freestyle relay also qualified for the finals with a 15th place finish in 1:50.58 with junior Kelly Winn, Moore, Erickson and Macias.

Several swimmers just missed the finals cut, including Macias, 19th in the 200 individual medley and 22nd in the 100 butterfly; Erickson, 18th in the 50 free and 21st in the 100 free; Reid, 18th in the 100 free and 18th in the 100 backstroke; and Moore, 20th in the 100 breaststroke.

The 400 free relay, meanwhile, finished just one place out of a finals berth with Tori Bock, Brooke Sires, Winn and Reid taking 17th place in 4:07.21.

“We had many in the hunt for the finals but they didn’t quite make it,” coach Rich Butler said.
