PREP BOYS' SWIMMING: Storm mixes it up in victory

Squalicum coach Paul Hanson had some fun switching his boys’ swimmers around, but it still resulted in a 109-70 boys' swimming victory for the Storm over Mount Vernon in a Northwest Conference meet at Arne Hanna Aquatic Center on Friday.

“We mixed up the lineup a little and got some guys swimming in events they weren’t used to,” Hanson said in a phone interview.

Hanson switched the events for two of his top swimmers, but it still resulted in a pair of individual victories for each. Thomas Abbott won the 200 freestyle in 1 minute, 58.31 seconds and the 50 freestyle in 24.47, while Eddie Myers earned wins in the 100 butterfly (58.70) and 100 backstroke (1:03.49).

Hanson said shuffling the lineup also gave him a good look at freshman Josh Magana, who helped Myers, Abbott and Jordan Rawls win the 200 freestyle relay in 1:44.67.

First-year divers Aaron and Brian Drake finished first and second, respectively, for the Storm (3-1, 3-0 NWC) and each surpassed 100 points (137.25 and 115.9).
