Port Angeles had seven district qualifiers and three relay teams that qualified for the district championships.

Little qualified in the 200 and 500 free while Moore qualified in the 100 breast and Tracie Macias qualified in the 50 free and 100 fly.

Kaitlin Fairchild also made the district time in the fly with a time of 1:11.42 for second.

Kelsey Macias was first and qualified in the 100 backstroke (1:09.86).

Also with district times were the 200 medley relay (2:06.36) with Kelsey Macias, Moore, Fairchild and Tracie Macias, the 200 free relay (1:53.40) with Tracie Macias, Tarah Erickson, Tori Bock and McKenna Bell-Duffy and the 400 free relay (4:16.16) with Bell-Duffy, Delaney Ronish, Lexie Pankowski and Sandy Gudgel.

“Well, today was the first meet for our little team,” Sequim coach Linda Moats (formerly Bingler) said.

“The new girls were very happy that they could swim. Some of the veterans were happy with their improvement over last year’s best times, others were disappointed.

“Of course we couldn’t come close to competing against Port Angeles’ 29 strong team, but we had fun.”

Surprise talents Ellie Hubbard and Serena Okamoto scored points for the team in both of their events while Rachel Hughes was the only swimmer to improve her times from last year.

The Riders next swim at Olympic on Thursday while the Wolves compete against Klahowya on Sept. 23.
