The Lynden boys' swim team defeated Sedro-Woolley 113-43 in a Northwest Conference meet on Thursday, Jan. 10, in Anacortes.
"We had some pretty good times and I think we are starting to dig out of the hole of sickness that we have been in," Lynden coach Steve Gibb said in a phone interview. "There were a lot of close races and I was pleased with the effort."
Lynden (4-1, 4-1 NWC) was led by John VanWingerden, who swam the 200 individual medley in 2 minutes, 27.3 seconds. VanWingerden was also part of the winning 200 freestyle relay that swam a 1:45.8 with Bryan Anker, Zach Woodyard and Jeffrey Propersi.
Kean Rouse, from Blaine High School but who swims with the Lynden team, would have had the fastest time in the 200 IM with a time of 2:17.1 and in the 500 freestyle with a time of 5:45.
Lynden will next swim at Anacortes on Tuesday, Jan. 15, in a Northwest Conference meet.
