federal way — Wenatchee’s Hannah Bruggman won the 100 freestyle title and took second in the 50 free race Saturday at the 4A girls swimming and diving championships at the King County Aquatics Center.
The Panthers took 10th place in the team standings.
Bruggman posted times of 51.71 seconds in the 100 free and 23.68 in the 50 free.
“She was definitely excited,” said Wenatchee coach James Elwyn. “She was feeling a sense of accomplishment for sure. It was a lot of fun. In the 100, we thought that if she swam the way she usually does, she’d walk away with the title, and that’s what she ended up doing.”
Wenatchee finished third in the 200 freestyle relay. The Panthers’ quartet of Cassandra Peterson, Rachel Wilt, Victoria Peterson and Bruggman finished in a time of 1:39.85
“(That perforamance) showed that (the team) is not all about Hannah,” Elwyn said. “The other three girls were impressive.”
The Panthers’ 200 medley relay team (Bruggman, Katherine Robinson, Cassandra Peterson and Wilt) finished sixth with a time of 1:52.86.
Cassandra Peterson finished sixth in the 100 butterfly consolation race with a time of 1:02.14
Wenatchee’s 400 freestyle relay team, consisting of Cassandra Peterson, Wilt, Kayli Elwyn and Victoria Peterson finished seventh in the consolation race in 3:49.21.
“Having all three relay teams advance to the finals shows that you have a lot of depth,” Elwyn said.
