Squalicum’s boys’ swimming team may have shown some fatigue in its second meet of the week, but the Storm snagged a 97-73 victory over Burlington-Edison on Thursday, Dec. 11, at Arne Hanna Aquatic Center.
“They looked fairly tired,” Squalicum coach Randy Elsner said in a phone interview. “At practice, I’m trying not to underwork them, but also don’t want to overwork them. Strike a balance between that.”
Despite Squalicum’s team victory, it was Blaine’s Kean Rouse who impressed the most. He was the unofficial winner in the 200 IM, grabbing a state qualifying time in that event.
The Storm’s Rowan King also set a state qualifying time in the 100 breaststroke and Matt Lovell “looked very good” today, Elsner said.
The Storm compete in the Northwest Conference Invite on Saturday, Dec. 13, at Fidalgo Pool.
