Print Article

MOSES LAKE — Moses Lake girls swimming totaled 300 points at the three-day district swim meet to finish third overall.

Perennial state title contender Wenatchee won the district championship with 631 points; crosstown rival Eastmont placed second with 353.

Anna Fair took fourth in the 100 butterfly and third in the 100 backstroke. In the backstroke, Fair was edged out of second place by Eisenhower’s Jackie DeGrasse. Fair finished her race in 1:02.48, less than a half a second slower than DeGrasse.

Cora Dana took third in the 50 freestyle, finishing in 25.94 seconds. Izzy Sica placed third in diving.

Moses Lake’s best relay was the 200 freestyle featuring Fair, Jessica Williams, Lacy Johnson and Dana. The quartet finished third (1:45.91) behind first-place Wenatchee and Eisenhower.

Moses Lake did not earn any automatic berths to the state meet, but head coach Tony St. Onge is hopeful that Fair can earn wild card bids in the 100 butterfly and 100 backstroke. St. Onge also said the 200 medley and 200 freestyle relays have a wild card shot as well as divers Sica, Bethany Bateman and Amarae Mohs.
