Mountain View set records at SW Washington swim meet
The Mountain View relay teams of Chris Xue, Davin Gong, Alexander Suk and Kyle Law broke two meet records Saturday at the Southwest Washington Invitational in Longview.
The Thunder 200-yard medley relay won in a meet-record time of 1 minute, 41.88 seconds. The mark was also a Class 3A state-qualifying mark. The quartet also set a meet record of 1:29.99 in winning the 200 free relay. That also was a state-qualifying time. Camas’ relay in that race placed third in a state-qualifying time of 1:33.67.
Both meet records dated back to 2001, Mountain View coach Dave Shoup said.
Gong won the 100 backstroke by three seconds, finishing with a state-qualifying time of 57.23 seconds.
Posting 4A state-qualifying swims in victories Saturday were Skyview’s Eric Bugna in the 100 butterfly (55.31 seconds) and Evergreen’s Jim Nguyen in the 100 breaststroke (1:01.77).
Other local winners included Mountain View’s Law in the 200 freestyle (1:52.87), Camas freshman Lucas Ulmer in the 200 individual medley (2:05.97), Hockinson freshman William Morris in the 500 freestyle (5:15.33) and the Camas 400 free relay (3:30.18).
Camas won the team title with 582 points, easily outdistancing Mountain View’s 333. Hockinson was third at 316.
