North Thurston 104, Shelton 79: The Rams closed out their final regular-season league meet with a win over the Highclimbers on Thursday.
Two Rams posted state times. Jeffrey Harn swam a 1:49.34 in the 200 freestyle. Later, Justin Ridgeway clocked a 1:02.10 in the 100 breaststroke.
Harn was a part of the winning 400 free relay team, and Ridgeway helped the Rams win the 200 medley relay.
“Tonight was fantastic,” North Thurston coach Jak Ayres said. “We had a meet on Tuesday with Gig Harbor. We squeaked by them by six. We expected another close one today because Shelton beat Gig Harbor. It was a real tough meet, all the races were really close. It was a fantastic season.”
North Thurston and the rest of the 3A SSC teams will compete at the league championship meet on Feb. 3 at The Evergreen State College. The meet will be hosted by Capital.
