Malella, Roley win multiple events for Sehome

The Sehome girls’ swimming team posted a well-rounded effort in a 119-50 win over Lynden on Thursday, Oct. 2, at the Lynden YMCA in a Northwest Conference matchup.

“I really was impressed by some of the folks that have been in the background up until this point,” Sehome coach Don Helling said in a phone interview.

Rebekah Miksovsky was one of those performers, winning the 100 breaststroke with a time of 1 minute, 25.78 seconds, while also swimming a leg in the winning 200 freestyle relay team.

Alia Malella took home wins in the 200 freestyle (2:07.96) and 500 freestyle (5:43.90). Gwen Roley also had two individual wins in the 100 butterfly (1:10.05) and 100 backstroke (1:07.87).

Lynden’s Jadyn Elias earned the Lions’ only win with a 28.65 in the 50 freestyle.

Sehome (3-0, NWC 3-0) will face rival Bellingham on Tuesday, Oct. 2, at Arne Hanna. Lynden (1-3, NWC 1-2) hosts Squalicum on Oct. 2.
