Girls HS State

The BCST High School Girls wrapped up their High School season at the State Championships with some brilliant swims. 33 swimmers from 16 different schools competed at the 2 day swimming jamboree held at KCAC.

Anna Keane and Kim Williams once again headlined the meet for BCST as they captured individual State Championships with automatic All American times. Anna, a junior from Meadowdale HS, won the 50 Free (23.36) and 100 Free (50.60). Both of her times were BCST Open record times.

Kim, a sophomore from Bellevue HS, won both the 200 IM (2:01.20) in a BCST Open record & 3A High School State record, and the 100 Breast (1:03.49) in a BCST 15-16 record setting time.

As relays go, there were some stellar performances from BCST girls as well.  Alex Seidel was on Mercer Island’s winning 200 Free and 400 Free relays.  The 200 free relay set a new state record.  Danielle Deiparine too was a member of the 3A state champion 400 Free relay.

Cascade High School won both of the 4A 200 Free and 400 Free relays, and BCST swimmers Darcie Booth, Danielle Booth and Kalena Laurent were on the two outstanding relay teams.
