Bellingham boys' swimming won each of the three relay events as the team cruised to a 112-58 Northwest Conference win over Burlington-Edison on Thursday, Jan. 30, at Arne Hanna Aquatic Center.
The Red Raiders' Logan Dozal swam a leg on each of the winning relay teams. Dozal also won the 500 freestyle with a time of 5 minutes, 30.17 seconds.
Bellingham won the 200 medley relay with a time of 2:00.32, the 200 freestyle relay in 1:45.95 and the 400 freestyle relay with a time of 3:57.51.
Though their record may not reflect it, the meet was characteristic of the quality of the Red Raiders' season.
"We're three points away from 7-1, so it's been a real good year for us," Bellingham coach Jeff Anderson said in a phone interview. "I'm really pleased with the progress, the boys are working hard and we're looking forward to the postseason."
Martin Sloley also qualified for state with a 2:10.85 in the 200 IM. Ferndale swimmer Louis Hunter won the 100 freestyle in 57.93.
