SPORTS: Port Townsend dunks Sequim in swimming; other prep reports

SEQUIM — Port Townsend’s girls swimming team swamped the undermanned Sequim Wolves 127-35 in Olympic League action at Sequim Aquatic Recreation Center on Thursday.

The Redskins won nine events while the Wolves captured two.

Serena Vilage was Port Townsend’s only individual double winner as she tied with teammate Julia Griffiths for first place in the 50-yard freestyle with a time of 26.71 seconds each.

“I swam them against each other so that we would have an opportunity to qualify for state, and they just missed the time standard by .12 seconds,” Port Townsend coach Anji Scalf said.

“We will have to try that again.”

Vilage also won the 100 breaststroke with a state-qualifying time of 1:15.91.

Taking first with district qualfying times were Averi Richerts in the 200 individual medley (2:40.92), Sarah Winslow in the 100 butterfly (1:18.79), and Darby Flanagan in the 500 free (6:23.53).

Also winning were Dreena Bailey-Gohn in the 100 backstroke and the relay teams of 200 free, 200 medley and 400 free.

“We only had seven girls against Port Townsend’s 13,” Sequim coach Linda Moats said. “Not only that, their team is very strong this year.”

Rachel Hughes qualified for district in the 200 IM for the Wolves and improved her time by 2 seconds.

“Overall, we’re slowly becoming a more experienced and competitive team and we have some district qualifiers,” Moats said.

The Redskins next will have a double-dual against North Kitsap and Kingston at their home pool Oct. 8.

Port Angeles 146, Klahowya 34

SILVERDALE — The Roughriders remained undefeated for the year (4-0 in Olympic League, 5-0 overall) as they swept 10 of 12 events and outscored the Eagles in 11 of the 12 events.

Emily Little was a double winner, taking the 200-yard freestyle in 2:12.17 and the 100 free in a district qualifying time of 59.68 seconds.

Kelly Winn was second in the 200 free with a district qualifying time of 2:18.45.

Jenna Moore also had a district qualifying time of 5:59.81 while winning the 500 free.

For Port Angeles, 60 percent of the swims were season’s best.

“We swam very well,” coach Rich Butler said. “The girls are making a big push for the second half of the season.”

The Riders next swim at Sequim on Oct. 8.

Volleyball Neah Bay 3, Clallam Bay 2

CLALLAM BAY — Neah Bay knocked off archrival Clallam Bay in five games, 19-25, 26-24, 19-25, 25-21, 15-7 on Thursday night.

Neah Bay remained undefeated on the year (1-0 in the North Olympic League and 5-0 overall) while the Bruins lost their first match of the year.

Neah Bay libro Krista Johnson was a force for the Red Devils in the match, coach Chon Clayton said.

“Krista was definitely a factor that contributed to our win tonight,” Clayton said.

“Early on we had some unforced errors that we need to work on. We have lots of things we can work on.”

Sarah Reeves had three aces, three blocks and two kills for the Bruins, teammate Stena Erickson had two aces and two kills and Melissa Willis had six blocks for Clallam Bay.

Bruin freshman Jazminn Randall had two kills and five blocks.

“The girls played very well and really gave Neah Bay some serious competition,” Clallam Bay coach Michelle Kleps said.

“I think the girls lost their energy in the fifth game. This was the first time this season where they had to play five games, so we will be working hard on being able to sustain our energy.”

Neah Bay hosts Crescent next Tuesday while Clallam Bay visits Crescent next Thursday.

Girls Soccer Klahowya 1, Port Angeles 0

SILVERDALE — Olympic League-leading Klahowya snuck an early goal past the Riders and it held up the whole way as Port Angeles fell on the road.

The Eagles scored off of a corner kick in the seventh minute.

“The kick went to a Klahowya girl at the near post and she got a flick on it with a header and it just dribbled across the goal,” Port Angeles coach Scott Moseley said.

Much of the rest of the game was spent in midfield with Port Angeles having the best of possession but unable to put together any scoring opportunities.

Moseley singled out the play of Tracie Dupuis on offense, Lauren Corn in midfield and Tori Holcomb on defense in the loss.
