The Sehome boys swimming team posted a good showing at the Kentridge Invitational at the King County Aquatic Center in Federal Way, finishing 11th out of 28 teams with 148.50 points on Saturday. Omaha Creighton Prep (Neb.) won the invitational with 790 points.
Sehome coach Don Helling said in a phone interview that the invitational was a good test for his athletes as the competition was tougher than the state meet.
The highest finish for the Mariners was Colin Flynn who finished 10th in a time of 23.05 in the 50 free.
Helling said he was also happy with the performances of Jordan Fish (15th in 5:15.76) and Michail Youngquist (19th in 5:28.43) in the 500 freestyle, but said his swimmers might be a bit gassed.

“This is our third meet this week and we’re training really hard so the guys were a little tired,” Helling said, “but we’re ready to put the final touches on the season.”
The Mariners (5-0 NWC, 7-1 overall) swim at Stanwood on Tuesday and then face a big test on Thursday when they take on Squalicum (6-0 NWC, 6-1 overall) at Arne Hanna Aquatic Center.
