Freshman Jane Shroufe (who garnered the girls high point in the Mt Hood Conference District Championship) swam impressively, and although she didn't quite match her best times, she had a very good first showing in the state championship finals with an 11th place finish in the 200 IM and an 8th place finish in her signature race, the 100 Breaststroke.  Sophomore Ian Watt swam also incredibly well in his first berth into the state championship meet, finishing 12th in the 50 Freestyle finals.  Ian was seeded 14th in the 50 Freestyle coming into the meet, and he moved up two spots during the prelims to be one of only two sophomores in the top twelve!  Freshman Gracie Zarosinski swam her first ever High School state meet, in two of the three relays and two individual events while Senior Samantha Brich swam her last state meet having qualified in two relays and one individual. 

Relay teams:

200 Med Relay - 9th place finish - Jackie James, Jane Shroufe, Sam Brich, Olivia Watt
