The Squalicum girls swim team grabbed first-team All-Northwest Conference honors in six individual events and two relays this year, as Sydney Wong and Yanran Le each earned first-team honors in two individual events and were part of the two first-team relays.
Selections, which were released by the league’s coaches Wednesday morning, are based on the best times in each event from the 2016 season.
Wong had the top times in the 200 and 100 freestyles with times of 2 minutes, 7.52 seconds in the 200 and a Class 3A state championship time of 52.28 seconds in the 100 on Saturday. Le, meanwhile, had the top times in the 200 individual medley (2:07.52) and 100 breaststroke (1:03.87).
