BOYS SWIMMING: Beamer wins West Central District crown

The Todd Beamer Titans boys swimming and diving team continued to rack up the awards Saturday by winning the West Central District III Class 4A championship inside the Rogers High School Aquatic Center in Puyallup.

The Titans easily outdistanced Kentridge to win the meet, which included teams from the South Puget Sound and Narrows leagues. Beamer also won the SPSL South Division championship, along with the SPSL team title last weekend.

And just like they've been doing all year, the Titans used their depth and prowess in the relays to score a bunch of points. Beamer finished with 193 team points, compared to 152 by Kentridge.

The Titans were ultra-impressive in winning the 400-yard freestyle relay and the 200 medley relay. Beamer also finished second in the 200 free relay.

It was the 400 free relay team of Jade Fiegert, Bart Wanot, Cole Um and Matthew Um who almost set a West Central District meet record, winning by more than six seconds over second-place Kentridge in a time of 3:15.94.

Wanot was the individual star of the meet again for the Titans. The senior, who won a state title in the 100 backstroke last year, finished first in the 200 freestyle (1:43.93) and 100 butterfly (51.29) on Saturday.

Cole Um had solid second-place swims in the 200 individual medley and 100 breaststroke. Um finished the individual medley in 2:01.31 and finished the breaststroke in 1:01.99.
