Swim: Oak Harbor wins 2, sets up battle for 1st

The Oak Harbor High School swim and dive team finds itself in a familiar story -- this time it hopes for a different ending.

The Wildcats go to Marysville-Pilchuck (3-0, 3-1) Tuesday, Jan. 11, at 2:45 p.m. in a battle which will likely determine the Wesco North champion.

In both 2009 and 2010 the Tomahawks handed Oak Harbor its only North losses and captured the conference crown.

The Wildcats (5-0, 7-2) set up its fight with Marysville-Pilchuck by swamping host Lake Stevens 123-62 Tuesday, Jan. 4, in a league meet and visiting Mount Vernon 114-69 Wednesday, Jan. 5, in a nonleague contest.

Price Hu led the charge against Lake Stevens with a state-qualifying time in the 200-yard individual medley in 2:04.83. He also won the 100 butterfly (57.65) and swam on two winning relay teams. Hu teamed up with Yale Rosen, Jacob Jepsen and Josh Jepsen in the 200-free relay (1:38.66) and with Caley Powers, Devin Schell and Brandon Vagt in the 400-free relay (3:46.43).

Josh Jepson also won the 200 free (1:54.76), 100 breaststroke (1:05.09) and 200 medley relay with Rosen, Vagt and Jacob Jepsen (1:47.62).

Rosen took the 50 free (23.85), Jacob Jepsen the 100 backstroke (1:01.45) and Bon Jarik Bainco the 100 free (56.38).

Coupeville's Cole Weinstein posted a state 2A qualifying time in winning the 500 free (5:13.84).
