MOSES LAKE — Moses Lake swim and dive team picked up the victory on senior night against West Valley (Yakima) and Sunnyside.

The Chiefs took the win with a team score of 141, with West Valley taking second with 28 points, and Sunnyside finishing with 9.

Moses Lake swept in relay races on Tuesday. Laurel Knox took first place in the 200-yard freestyle, and the 100-yard freestyle. Annicka Burke got first 200 yard individual medley and second place in the 500-yard freestyle.

Jessica Williams placed first in the 50-yard freestyle and 100-yard backstroke. Brittney Richeson took first in the 500-yard freestyle and first place in the 100-yard backstroke.

As Moses Lake head coach Tony St. Onge honored each of his seniors with a rose, St. Onge said he always tries to keep up with his players after they graduate, with a lot of them coming back to visit.

“I never say good bye, I say good luck,” St. Onge said.

St. Onge said this group of swimmers stands out by just how involved they are with so many different things as students and athletes. While they are all devoted to the team during the season, St. Onge said they all are very active in a number of things as they try and open doors for themselves moving towards the future.

“There’s so much pressure there now with college to be involved in so many different things,” St. Onge said. “And I’m happy that swim team is just one of the many things they’re involved with.”

Still sporting a roster of 56 swimmers, the Moses Lake head coach said he’s impressed with how many of them that started out inexperienced have become real swimmers and real divers early in the season.

St. Onge said the team is beginning to become more competitive as the season moves forward, and heralded their performance at the Mukilteo Invitational over the weekend.

“What was really great is we had best times all across the board in a big competition,” St. Onge said. “And that’s what we’re trying to emphasize is continue to improve, continue to improve, no matter where you’re at compared to the league. Keep improving.”

Next up for the Chiefs is a road trip to face Davis and Eisenhower next Thursday.
