Lynch places 16th in state meet / Swimming

South Whidbey High School junior Ashley Lynch placed 16th in the 200-yard freestyle at the state 2A/1A/2B swim meet Saturday, Nov. 16, at the King County Aquatic Center in Federal Way.

Lynch’s time of 2:07.78 was more than two seconds faster than her time at last year’s state meet when she finished 13th.

The team point Lynch earned by taking 16th helped South Whidbey place 22nd in the team standings. The Falcons were one of only four schools smaller than 2A to score in the meet.

Lynch was also first among 1A swimmers in the 200.

Brianna Hoffman from North Kitsap won the event in 1:57.78.

Lynch joined freshmen Parker Forsyth and Abigail Ireland and junior Katie Zundel on the 19th-place 400-free relay team (second among 1A schools). The Falcons clocked a 4:11.37 in the event won by Sammamish in 3:39.95.

Lynch also qualified for the 500 freestyle but was disqualified for a false start.

Liberty of Renton (268 points), Sammamish (264) and Anacortes (166), all teams from South Whidbey’s bi-district meet, claimed the top three spots in the team standings.
