SPORTS: Port Angeles dunks Sequim in boys swimming; other prep reports

PORT ANGELES — The Port Angeles boys swimming team remained undefeated by dunking archrival Sequim in Olympic League action Thursday.

The Roughriders improved to 4-0 in league and overall with the 115-69 victory.

Port Angeles was first in 10 of the 12 events and had three double winners.

Charlie Parks won in the 200-yard freestyle and the 100 breaststroke while Tyler Burke was first in the 50 free and 100 back and Avery Koehler took honors in the 100 butterfly and 500 free.

Winning an individual race for Sequim was Noe Calderon in the 100 free.

Other winners for the Riders were Kris Wannquist in the 200 individual medley and Austin Fahrenholtz in diving.

Port Angeles also won the 200 medley relay as well as the 400 free relay and Sequim picked up a win in the 200 free relay.

The Riders also had two more district qualifying times as Parks qualified in the 200 free (2:05.64) and Tarren Grimsley qualified in the 500 free with a second-place time of 6:02.26.

Sequim also had two district qualifiers as Drew Rickerson qualified in the 100 free in 59.61 for second behind Calderon, and Connor Christianson qualified in diving in a special qualifying meet Wednesday.

“Although Port Angeles won, we had a good meet,” Sequim coach Linda Moats said.

“We still have work to do on technique but I am very pleased with the team’s progress at this point in the season.”

The Riders swept the 200 and 500 free but the Wolves took second, third and fourth in diving.

Port Angeles next swims against Klahowya at Olympic High School in Silverdale this coming Thursday at 3:30 p.m. in Olympic League action.

SEQUIM — The Wolves avenged one of their two Olympic League losses on the season with a narrow victory over the Trojans (4-4, 5-6) Thursday night.

Jason Brocklesby and Gabe Carter each had double-doubles to help the Wolves (6-2, 10-3) maintain their grip on third place in league.

“[The Trojans] are right behind us, and to get that win gives us a little more separation,” Wolves coach Greg Glasser said.

“The kids played well. I’m really happy with how we’re playing right now.”

Brocklesby scored 15 points and grabbed 12 rebounds,while Carter added 12 points, 10 rebounds and four assists in the win.

Senior Nick Camporini chipped in with a team-high 17 points to go along with four assists.

That more than trumped a big night for Olympic’s Quinten Phillips, who scored a game-high 24.
