The Oak Harbor swim and dive team overwhelmed Burlington-Edison and Sedro-Woolley here Monday, going at least one-two in every swim event.

The Wildcats thumped Burlington-Edison 145-31 and Sedro-Woolley 148-26; Burlington beat Woolley 101-63.

Oak Harbor claimed the top three spots in seven races, went one-two in the other four, and won the dive competition.

Coach Ericka Miller said, regardless of the competition she likes her swimmers “to bring their best swim to the meet, and for the most part we did.” She added, “I really liked what our JV swimmers did today.”

Miller singled out the efforts of Therese Dequitado, who won the 50 free in 29.97, and Rachel Weinstein’s victory in the 100 breaststroke in 1:24.5.

Laura Rosen missed by only two seconds reaching state qualifying times in the 100 fly (1:08.52), 400 free (4:42.28), and 200 freestyle relay (1:59.47).
