Swim team dunks Spartans

The long holiday break did nothing to diminish the Oak Harbor High School swim team’s intensity, and the Wildcats started 2008 off on the right foot beating Stanwood 131-61 in a Thursday league meet at John Vanderzicht Memorial Pool.

The victory keeps Oak Harbor undefeated at 2-0 in WesCo North meets this season and 6-2 overall.

The Wildcats put together a dominating performance winning every race with the exception of the 100 freestyle and the 400 freestyle.

John Hu had a good meet for the Wildcats winning the 100 backstroke in a time of 1:04.39, and swimming the leadoff leg on the winning 200 medley and 200 freestyle relay teams.

“I’m a little bit out of shape and a little heavy after eating all those goodies during the Christmas break, but I thought I swam pretty good today,” Hu said.

Price Hu won the 200 individual medley at 2:27.67, and was also on the 200 medley and 200 freestyle relay teams, and Yale Rosen won the 50 freestyle at 27.31, the 100 breaststroke in a clocking of 1:16.55, and was a member of both winning relay teams.

“This was a fun meet. We had some good swims with good times turned in today,” coach Erika Miller said.

Spencer Livermore rounded out the individual winners capturing the 100 butterfly in a time of 1:07.19 and was on both relay teams.

The Wildcats’ next home meet is Thursday, Jan. 10, against Cascade.
