The 200 medley relay consisted of Tova Andersson, Carly Curran, Misiuda and Synneva Nelson; the 200 free relay featured Maja Evans, Curran, Abby Neilson and Nelson; and the 400 free relay consisted of Curran, Andersson, Emma Ulvin and Evans.

On the Lake Washington side, Amelia Hammer took eighth in the 50-yard freestyle in 24.70.

“We were so proud of our team this year,” said LW coach Dave Hale. “I think we have one of the top freshmen classes in KingCo. Our state team was led by our sprinter Amelia Hammer — she was an incredible emotional leader at the meet. Our girls will be back with a vengeance next year.”

Juanita placed 11th in the team standings and LW took 16th.
