Hazzard, Linde top finishers for SHS at league championships


MOSES LAKE – Summer Hazzard and Erica Linde surfaced with the best finishes for the Sunnyside High School girls swim team at the Big Nine League championship meet, hosted by the Moses Lake Chiefs in their 50-yard pool last Thursday.

Both Grizzlies managed sixth-place finishes at the seven-school meet.

Hazzard excelled in the 50-yard freestyle. She clocked a time of 27.68 seconds, sixth fastest from a field that numbered 61 girls.

The winning time of 25.67 seconds was notched by Moses Lake’s Cora Dana. Just four hundredths of a second behind Dana, in second place, was Audrey Parrish of Wenatchee.

Linde’s sixth-place performance came in the 100-yard butterfly. One of 15 swimmers entered in the event, the Grizzly sped to a clocking of 1:18.67. Her teammate, Clarisa Calderon, finished two spots back – in eighth – in a time of 1:19.60. The 100-‘fly winner was Anna Fair of Moses Lake (1:00.50).

Of the 11 events staged at the league championships, Wenatchee’s swimmers came away with wins in eight of them. Moses Lake accounted for the three other victories.

The District 6 championship meet will also be hosted by Moses Lake. That competition is slated for this coming Friday and Saturday. The swimmers at Moses Lake on Oct. 30-31 will be attempting to qualify for the 4A State meet.
