SWIMMING/DIVING: Federal Way's Ramey wins two events in record-setting times at SPSL Meet

Federal Way senior Kenna Ramey has already proven to be the class of the South Puget Sound League during her Eagle career. Ramey further cemented her all-time status Saturday at the SPSL swim meet at the Rogers Aquatic Center.

Ramey won a pair of individual league titles, breaking her own meet records in both the 50-yard freestyle and 100 butterfly. Ramey swam a blazing 24.06 in the 50 free, to break the record (24.10) she set in 2011 as a sophomore. Ramey's butterfly time of 57.21 eclipsed her mark of 58.87 from last year.

Ramey has already won three state championships. As a sophomore, she won the 50 free and Ramey won the 50 and 100 butterfly state titles last season.

But Ramey wasn't the only Eagle to snag a league championship. Tia Thomas dominated the 1-meter diving competition at the SPSL meet, scoring 409.10 points, to win the title and earn an automatic berth into the Class 4A State Girls Diving Meet.

A pair of Decatur divers also snagged automatic berths into the state diving meet. Freshman Catherine Sobus finished in second-place behind Thomas and was the top 3A finisher with 329.95 points. Gator senior Anna Paradee was third overall with 312.30 points.

At the Class 4A meet, Federal Way finished up in sixth-place in the team standings with 83 points. Curtis won the SPSL team championships with 209 points, Kentlake (199) was second and Mount Rainier (186) was third. Jefferson was 12th with 13 points.

Next up will be the West Central District III Swimming and Diving Championships. The Class 4A meet will be at the Curtis Aquatic Center Friday and Saturday. The district diving prelims and finals will be Thursday at Foss High School. The Class 3A District Swimming and Diving Meet will be Friday and Saturday at Hazen High School.
