REDMOND — The swim meet was in Redmond, but it was all about Sisters on Thursday night.
With six first-place swimmers (three girls and three boys), the Outlaws’ girls and boys teams defeated both Redmond High and Ridgeview to walk away from Cascade Swim Center as the double-dual winners.
Mary Stewart finished the 200-meter individual medley in 2 minutes, 36.22 seconds to claim the event for Sisters, while Emily Christen (50 freestyle) and Brooke Knirk (100 free) each added victories.
All three also teamed up with Madelyn Zadow to guide the Outlaws to second-place showings in the 200-medley and the 200-freestyle relays, helping Sisters defeat Redmond (115-79) and Ridgeview (109-75).
For the Panthers, who edged the crosstown Ravens 85-81, it was Elizabeth Moss leading the way with a win in the 100 backstroke. Moss’ time of 1:23.04 narrowly bested Zadow by one-tenth of a second. Andrea Broyles logged a second-place finish in the 100 breaststroke, and Moss and Broyles each added third-place showings in the 50 freestyle and 200 IM, respectively.
Haley Houghton paced Ridgeview with wins in the 200 and 400 freestyle races, while Rachel Haney (100 butterfly) and Casee Lantz (100 breaststroke) each picked up a victory. The Ravens’ trio, along with Beth Leavitt, combined to take the 200-medley and 200-freestyle relays.
Sisters’ boys swept the top three spots in the 50 freestyle sprint en route to victories over Redmond (93-51) and Ridgeview (81-47). Trevor Barry took the win in the 50 free in 28.76 seconds, followed by teammates Keenan O’Hern and Jake McAllister.
Ian Baldessari logged a victory in the 100 butterfly after clocking in at 1:19.66, and Brennan Miller’s time of 1:15.48 earned the senior a win in the 100 backstroke.
Dan Peplin recorded the top finish for the Panthers, who dispatched Ridgeview 71-54. Peplin was second in the 100 backstroke and swam the anchor leg of Redmond’s first-place 400-freestyle relay team. Canaan Settles took third in the 100 backstroke.
Ridgeview was led by Owen Hucke’s victories in the 200 and 100 freestyle races, and Brett Kelly took the 100 breaststroke. Hucke and Kelly also swam the second and third legs, respectively, of the winning 200-free relay team.
