— The Grizzlies girls swim season came to its conclusion this past Saturday at Manta Ray Aquatic Center as none of the competitors qualified for the 4A State Swim Championships.

There were several Sunnyside girls competing after Thursday’s preliminary races, however.

The 200-yard medley relay team — Kylah Bunch, J’Naya Siller, Rugile Dovidonyte and Amerie Stroh — garnered a seventh-place finish. They combined for a time of 2:18.84.

The first-place team from Wenatchee clocked 1:49.04.

In the 200-yard individual medley, Dovidonyte qualified for the consolation finals and collected ninth place with a time of 2:32.80. Her split times were 30.81, 39.36, 44.56 and 38.07.

Maya Cunningham of Eisenhower claimed first-place honors, tagging the end of the pool in 2:09.71.

The Grizzlies had another seventh-place finish in the 200-yard freestyle relay. The team consisted of Bunch, Siller, Stroh and Clarissa Calderon. They clocked 2:04.22, while Wenatchee won the race in 1:41.57.

Dovidonyte competed in one more individual race. In the consolation finals, she had a 100-yard backstroke time of 1:09.54, good for 10th-place honors.

The winner of the race was Haily Payne of Wenatchee after tagging the edge of the pool in 58.53.

The competition ended with the 400-yard freestyle relay.

In that race, Sunnyside’s Eternity Yanez, Gillian Moyer, Cecilia Stroh and Kamille Giles earned seventh place with a clocking of 5:21.29.
