Oak Harbor finishes strong against Bruins | Swimming

Dominating the second half of the meet, the Oak Harbor High School swim team rolled by Cascade 106-76 at Everett's Forest Park Pool Thursday, Jan. 16.

The Wildcats held only a six-point lead, 48-42, after the first six events, then pulled away with a help of a sweep of the top three spots in the 100-yard backstroke and going 1-2 in the 200 free relay.

Cascade (2-4) hung with Oak Harbor early in part because it swept the diving, earning 13 points; the Wildcats do not have a dive team.

Caley Powers and Cedric Cabigting continued their strong season by winning two individual events and two relays.

Powers captured the 50 free (24.25) and 200 medley (2:15.47), and Cabigting won the 100 butterfly (58.74) and 100 back (1:01.62).

Powers and Cabigting teamed up with Dakota Powers and Micha Geist to win the 200 medley relay (1:54.65) and joined Derek Volk and Dakota Powers to take the 200 free relay (1:42.44).

Jake Nelson finished first in the 100 breaststroke (1:14.1).

Oak Harbor (5-2), along with Marysville Getchell (2-5), goes to Marysville-Pilchuck (1-6) for a double dual meet at 2:45 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 21.
