High school boys swim and dive teams in Federal Way made an impression at the league swim meet Jan. 30-31.

Thomas Jefferson high school came in seventh place with a team score of 69, Federal Way High School came in 10th with a score of 34 and Decatur came in 13th with a score of 11.

Federal Way High School sophomore Cooper Barry qualified for districts in the 200 individual medley with a time of 2 minutes, 22 seconds and senior Jordan Clemens made it to districts on a wild card, with a 100 meter fly time of 1:02.

“Our goal was to get a couple of relays into districts,” said Carla Boone, coach. “It took a long time to get two because we never had a full team this season due to illness and other issues. Saturday those boys just went crazy on the 200 free relay, they stepped up and went and did their job.”

Senior diver Morphin Ernesto also finished in 12th place.
