B2 August 11, 2011 VALLEY SPORTS ~,%~POST- REGISTER Quincy makes splash i n season finale FROM STAFF REPORTS Leavenworth - The Quincy swimmers com- pleted the 2011 Wenatchee Valley Summer Swim League season with a fourth-place finish at the championships in Leavenworth. The team had lots of new faces and plenty of improvement all the way to the end in the Six-team league. Cashmere was crowned the champions with a score of 3.639 and Ephrata was the runner-up at 3.296. Upper Valley, the host team, was third with a score of 3.131,just edging out Quincy by the slimmest of margins - 3.128. The WRAC (2.590) was fifth and Waterville (1.646) was sixth. Quincy had three high-point winners in 7-year-old Reid Thomsen, 11-year-old Gates Petersen and 12-year-old Riley Beaumont. The most improved single swim came from Damon Sahli in the 25-yard backstroke. The 5-year-old cut more than 37 seconds to place fifth in a time of 60.79 seconds. But he was not the only swimmer to cap the~season with huge improvements. Brynn Nieuwenhuis (10) grabbed fourth place in the 50-fly after slicing 7.93 seconds and Gun- nar Petersen (13 ) placed first in the 100 individual medley after cutting 7.21 seconds. 'rThe one race that stands out was Gunnar's. He cut a lot and took first, which was impres- sive," coach BonnieKnodell said. "When you're 13 and swim this amount of time, that seven seconds is a lot of time." Although Chloe James didn't place in the 50-free, she was able to cut 7.58 seconds off her time. Thomsen improved in all three of his events, cutting a total of 13.64 seconds and nabbed two first place ribbons and a third place. Emily Bensch (14) cut more than five seconds from her 50-fly and took fifth place and Randy Hodges (11) dropped 4.8 seconds off his 50-free to take sixth place. "I was kind of shocked by all the time cut," Knodell said. Girls 8 & under Bridgette Hodges (8) - 2, 25-free 1934; 3, 50-free 45.76; 5, 25-back 30.18. Taylor Thomsen (8) - 3, 25-back 26.92.
