Hollander leads Lynden girls' swimming over Burlington-Edison


Lynden girls' swimming scored a win over Burlington-Edison 134-34 on Thursday, Oct. 10, at Fidalgo Pool. Sarah Hollander led the Lions to a win in the 200 medley relay in 2 minutes, 14.62 seconds, and in the 400 freestyle relay (4:29.92).

"We had a good meet, we swam well and our times are doing well for us," Lynden coach Linda Bode said in a phone interview. "Three of our swimmers are so close to districts."

The 200 individual medley was a photo finish, with Burlington-Edison's Rachel Oneda edging out Lynden's Shelly Umbaugh as both finished at 2:51.13. Bode said that Oneda caught Umbaugh right at the end of the race after Umbaugh had led almost the entire way.

Lynden's next meet is at 2:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 15, at Fidalgo Pool against Anacortes.
