The Seaside-Warrenton swim team was in competition in the new year and for the first time since Astoria’s Nygaard Invitational in December, as the Gulls hosted Gladstone for a dual meet Thursday, Jan. 12, at Sunset Pool.
Seaside defeated the Gladiators on the boys’ side, 99-43, while Gladstone scored a 98-63 win over the Lady Gulls.
The Seaside boys had several swimmers with multiple wins, including Bradley Rzewnicki (200-yard individual medley and 100-yard breaststroke); Luke Liljenwall (50-yard freestyle, 100-yard freestyle); and Will Garvin (100-yard butterfly, 100-yard backstroke).
Liljenwall, Rzewnicki, Garvin and James Kennedy teamed up to win the 200-yard medley relay in 1:59.42, and the same four won the 200-yard freestyle relay in 1:44.70.
Wesley Corliss (who won the 200-yard freestyle), swam the lead leg on the 400-yard freestyle relay, with Dawson Blanchard, Nick Konya and Isaiah Collins swimming a 4:42.72 to win that event.
Sophomore Kendy Lin scored big points for the Seaside girls, winning the 200 individual medley (2:36.58) and the backstroke (1:09.01); and she teamed with Cadyn Carr, Summer Spell and Maya McGill to place first in the 400 freestyle relay (4:47.27).
Carr also had the first place times in the 100 freestyle (1:14.20) and the breaststroke (1:32.80).
Seaside swimmers compete against Taft in Seaside on Thursday, Jan. 26.
