The Squalicum boys' swim team depth nearly was enough in a 96-90 Northwest Conference loss at Anacortes on Thursday, Jan. 10.
The loss dropped the Storm to 2-4, 2-3 NWC while the Seahawks improved to 4-0, 4-0 NWC.
"We tried to get them on depth and we almost got there," Squalicum coach Randy Elsner said in a phone interview.
Nathan Kamkoff had two individual wins for the Storm in the 200 individual medley (2 minutes, 28.05 seconds) and 100 breaststroke (1:08.61). Squalicum also won the 200 freestyle relay in 1:42.43 and Rylan Korby won diving with 156.95 points.
Squalicum's Ryan Harris had a district time and four-second drop with a second-place finish in the 200 IM and Neall Koetje placed third with a district time in the 200 freestyle.
"We had a lot of huge drops in pretty much every race," Elsner said.
