The Cascade High School swim team nipped Oak Harbor in four individual races and then nipped the Wildcats 88-82 in team scoring to win the battle of two undefeated teams Monday, Sept. 24, at John Vanderzicht Memorial Pool.

The 4A Bruins (6-0) won four events by a half second or less and nine of the 11 events to overcome 3A Oak Harbor's (6-1) depth.
