The Sehome girls' swim team won every event as it went on to beat Lynden 144-46 in a Northwest Conference match on Tuesday, Sept. 11, in Lynden.

"It was a great way to start off our duel meets," Sehome coach Don Helling said in a phone interview. "We had solid swims and I was really pleased with our freshman swimmers. Gwendolyn was my pick for swimmer of the meet because she was part of the two state qualifying times."
