Despite the fact that this year the KingCo finals and prelims were held at UW’s swimming pool, rather than Mercer Island’s home pool, the Islanders ran away with their 10th consecutive KingCo title on Saturday night.
The Islanders won the 4A/3A/2A combined meet with 747 points, while Newport took second with 422 points.
Individually, Marco Signorelli was second in the 50 freestyle sprint with a 22.24 time, while Duncan Koontz was second in the 100 butterfly race in 55.73.
Singorelli earned an individual title during the 100 freestyle event, with a time of 48.50, to beat teammate Andrew Weiss who finished second in 48.93.
The Islanders team of Kenny Trowbridge, Noah Deiparine, Signorelli and Weiss took the 200 freestyle relay title in 1:29.90. In the 100 backstroke race, Ian Piper finished third for the Islanders in 56.94.
The combination of Deiparine, Dan Simons, Signorelli and Weiss earned the Islanders the top spot in the 400 freestyle relay, to finish the meet with a win.
The diving results were not available, but will be updated once it is posted.
This upcoming weekend the Islanders will take part in the SeaKing district tournament, before preparing for the 3A state meet the following weekend, Feb. 17-18 at the King County Aquatic Center in Federal Way.
