Oak Harbor slides by Lake Stevens | Swimming

The Oak Harbor High School swim team put a bow on 2012 with a 93-77 win over Lake Stevens at John Vanderzicht Memorial Pool Wednesday, Dec. 19.

The Wildcats won eight of the 11 events and received a pair of individual wins from Josh Jepsen and Kevin Levy.

Jepson took the 200-meter individual medley (2:15.36) and 100 butterfly (1:00.61), while Levy captured the 50 (25.9) and 100 frees (1:00.38).

The pair also swam on two winning relays, joining Toren Wood and Caley Powers in the 200 medley (1:56.38) and Powers and Cedric Cabigting in the 200 free (1:46.82).

Cabigting grabbed an individual win in the 100 backstroke (1:07.67), and Joe Gorman finished first in the 200 free (2:18.23).

Coach Alex Thierry said, "Last night was a great meet. I had some swimmers swim some events they do not normally swim just to see where our depth really is."

He said no new state times were met against the Vikings (2-2), but a few were close and he expects them to be achieved before the end of the regular season.

The Wildcats (4-1) are now off until Monday, Jan. 7, when they meet Marysville-Pilchuck and Marysville Getchell at 6 p.m. at Vanderzicht Pool.
