Kamiak easily topped archrival Jackson in a battle between two of the Wesco 4A’s best boys swimming and diving teams.
Depth lifted the Knights to a 115-68 victory over the Timberwolves on Thursday, Jan. 25, at Kamiak High School.
Jackson, however, had a number of stellar performances as Jonathan Cook and Justin Limberg each won two events.
Cook finished first in the 200 individual medley in 1 minute, 51.94 seconds and the 100 breaststroke in 57.84, both of which were state cuts. Limberg won the 200 freestyle in 1:48.88 and the 100 freestyle in 48.77. Both also were state times.
The Wolfpack’s 200 freestyle relay team of Cook, Neal Thai, Ed Engel and Limberg won in a state cut time of 1:28.67.
Other Timberwolves who had state times were Thai (50 freestyle) and the Wolfpack’s 400 freestyle relay squad of Engel, Thai, Limberg and Cook.
Kamiak also had a number of state times. Freshman Vlad Gilszmer won the 100-yard backstroke in 54.92 and 500 freestyle in 4:45.74 to lead the Knights.
