M-P and MG both struggled against Sehome to start the evening but rebounded for back-to-back wins against S-W and B-E.
“We’re actually missing some Getchell guys,” M-P and MG coach Meredith Jenks said. “Our top swimmer’s out with bad tendonitis and some other guys still have to be cleared. I’m very impressed, and we knew we had a chance.”
The Tomahawk A team of seniors Andrew Winquist (28.92 seconds) and Jon Ell (29.85), and juniors Colin Willis (24.44) and Jacob Blomberg (25.78) took second in the 200-yard medley relay at 1:48.99.
“M-P swam really well too,” Jenks said. “Sehome’s guys (who won the 200-yard medley relay) are three-time state champs, so we knew what we were up against.”
