The Todd Beamer girls swim team is the best the Federal Way School District has to offer this season. The Titans earned bragging rights Tuesday by winning the All-City Swim Meet inside the Weyerhaeuser King County Aquatic Center.

Beamer tallied 145 points, followed by second-place Jefferson with 129, Federal Way 79 and Decatur with 78.

The four-team, non-league meet featured several automatic state-qualifying times, including four from Beamer’s Rachel Kim. Kim won the 200-yard individual medley in a state time of 2:14.97 and the 100 back in 1:02.65. She was also a part of a pair of state-qualifying relay teams for the Titans. The Beamer team of Kim, Jenelle Freeborn, Jessica Soria and Eryn Murphy won the 200 medley relay (1:53.88) and Kelly Erickson, Kim, Murphy and Soria won the 200 free relay (1:44.19).

Jefferson also got an individual state-qualifying time from Amber Cratsenberg after she won the 50 free in 25.39 over Murphy, who also had a state time in the event (25.46).

Beamer also got individual event wins from Soria in the 200 free (2:08.18) and 500 free (5:45.75).
