MacAlevy won the event with a time of 56.3 seconds. Shelton senior quafifies for district championship in three more events By EMILY HANSON emi @masoncoun com For a swimmer to improve on his per- sonal record in an event is an accomplish- ment. For a swimmer to advance to districts at the third meet of the season with personal records is an even greater accomplishment. Harrison MacAlevy achieved the second goal in one event last week. The Shelton senior won the 200-yard freestyle against Capi- tal Dec. 9 at The Evergreen State College in Olympia with a personal record time of 1 minute, 54.52 seconds. The time qualified him for the 3A West Central District III Championship. He also qualified for districts in two other events last :'! week. During the Highclimbers' Dec. 11 home meet against Wilson, MacA- levy won the 200-yard individual med- ley with a district-qualifying time of 2:11.98. He also won the 100-yard butterfly with another district-qualify- ing time of 56.3. Shelton split the meets. Capital de- feated the Climbers 94-87, while Shel- ton beat Wilson 102-86. "The results of the Capital and Wilson meets ended up the opposite of what I would have predicted," co-head coach Chad Youngquist said. "Wilson has been tougher than us recently and :: I thought we might win against Capital. Both teams will be a challenge for us at the 3A Narrows League Champion- i ship." Although MacAlevy was the only Shelton boy to qualify for districts at the .... meets, 10 others qualified for the league \ championship: Dalton Green, 2:31.14 in the 200-yard individual medley against Wilson; and 1:07.20 in the 100-yard backstroke against Wilson; Ryan Taylor, 1:14.91 in the 100- butterfly against ~ital; and 1:15.58 the 100-yard against Troy Krumpols performs a dive. yard ..... ~: ~ ~:~ ~:~ ~: ~ ~: ~ Capital; Alec Dodge, 1:03.71 in the butterfly against Capital; Alex Brown- Garcia, 58.32 in the 100-yard free- against Ryan oungquist, ~:58.23 in the 500- freestyle against Zach Netzel, 1:09.86 in the backstroke Wilson; Jacob Schreiber, 1:10.73 in the backstroke against pm today Taylor Toney, 1:15.91 in the breaststroke against dtal; Luke Netzel, 1:17.76 in the breaststroke against Capital; and Brayden Ordonez, 2:38.66 in the individual med- ley against Capital and 1:11.31 in the butterfly against ............. Capital. League, district and state qualifying times are deter- mined by the officials of those meets. To compete at the postseason meets, swimmers must meet the qualifying time or swim an event faster than during the season. "Our biggest improvement came from Dodge and Schreiber," Youngquist said. Additionally, Troy Krumpols won diving at both meets. At the Shelton meet, he earned a personal re- cord of 209.8 points, but the scoring has been modified for diving this season. "I think it is reasonable to assume that our school records will be beaten (because of the scor- ing modification)," Youngquist said. "... We may need to have a new and an old record. Our current divers are very good, but it will be hard to make a comparison to the former divers that were also extremely good." Shelton will swim against Mount Tahoma at 3:30 at home. By EMILY HANSON emily@masoncoun com Shelton played a "sur- real" game on the road Friday night, Derrick Pringle said. A triple overtime game can have that affect. Capital knocked off the Highclimber boys basketball team 112-106 after three extra periods. "Both teams had their opportunity to win," the Shelton head coach said. "I am so proud of how these young men left ev- erything on the floor." At halftime, Capital led 31-26, but by the end of regulation play, the teams were tied at 71. Three 4-minute over- time periods later, and Capital earned the victory. "When Tyler Speaks fouled out in the fourth quarter, Trenton Wo- odard, Marshall Mc- Cullough and Kevin Scott stepped up their play and contributed well," Pringle said. "Mitchell DeAndre led the charge with key rebounds and defensive stops." Woodard led the High- climbers with 31 points, while Scott put up 18 and McCullough added 17. "The high (point) of the game was the pres- ence of Kobe Bogh, who stepped in for Speaks," Pringle said. "His key 3-pointer in regulation got the team motivated and started the charge to take the lead. His defen- sive stops and rebounds were the key pieces we needed from him. He did an outstanding job." Bogh scored 13 points. As a team, the High- climbers had 42 re- bounds and made 19-of- 32 free throws. The loss ended Shelton's second week of games. The Highclimbers started last week with their first victory in more than one year. On Dec. 8, Shelton de- feated Bremerton 52-39 in Bremerton. "The boys played well from the start," Prin- gle said. "We noticed in warmups that they were very focused and really wanted the win. We knew that Bremer- ton was very athletic and liked to pressure, so we prepared our game plan to put them into a situa- tion where they couldn't get any good looks." see CUMBERS, page B-7
