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.
