Glacier Peak is sitting atop the Wesco North boys swim and dive standings.
The Grizzlies improved to 7-0 in the league after easily defeating Marysville-Pilchuck and Marysville-Getchell in a pair of dual meets Tuesday, Jan. 8. Glacier Peak won 131-49 over the Chargers and 138-38 over the Tomahawks at Snohomish Aquatics Center.
Jack Renschler, who helped the Grizzlies’ 200 freestyle relay team to a fourth-place finish at the 4A state championships, won the 200 and 500 freestyles and was a member of the victorious 200 freestyle relay team.
Glacier Peak coach Ron Belleza said that Renschler is strong in all of the freestyles 100, 200 and 500.
Freshman Keegan Lisenby took the 200 individual medley. Lisbenby brings versatility to Glacier Peak.
“Pretty much everything he’s swam, he’s made a district time,” Belleza said.
Daniel Pokorny, who also was a member of the 200 freestyle relay team with Lisenby and Jake Ramsdell, should a contender in the 200 and 500 freestyles.
Other winners for Glacier Peak included Alex Kennedy in the 100 butterfly and Cody Cruz in the 100 backstroke.
Glacier Peak’s 200 medley relay squad of Taylor Erickson, Liam Phan, Kennedy and Kyle Grubb also finished first.
“I’m super pleased with how everyone is doing,” Belleza said.
Glacier Peak’s Matthew King, who won two state titles in the 50 and 100 freestyles, chose not to come out for the high school season because of club team committements. Belleza is hoping that King will return for his senior season.
