Swim team plunges head first into season

It was a strong weekend of competition for the Linfield swim teams. They competed in a Pentathalon on Oct. 27 at Pacific University and a relay meet Oct. 28 at Lewis and Clark College.

Freshman swimmers stepped up to compete during the meets. Ian White, Nikki Overton and Liz Fry were just some of the young swimmers that stood out this past weekend.

Senior Sean Iwamasa was also a strong contender for the Wildcats.

“Sean is a sprinter,” sophomore AJ Wagoner said. “It definitely showed during Saturday’s sprint meet.”

The Wildcats made a strong appearance during their first preseason meet.

“We showed promise and potential for our first meet,” Wagoner said. “Unfortunately we were still dominated by powerhouses Whitman and Whitworth.”
