News from Mount Si girls’ swimming

Mount Si High School’s swim team was scheduled on Tuesday to meet Interlake, but instead went up to Klahanie Pool in Sammamish to meet Skyline. The Spartans easily won the team competition, but the Wildcats had a few highlights.

Chief among those was junior Theodora McCabe, who won two events – the 50 yard freestyle and the 100 yard breaststroke. McCabe’s freestyle winning time was 26.70 seconds and she clocked 1:14.70 in the 100 breaststroke. Both met qualification standards for the 4A SeaKing district meet. Also, in the diving, Kaitlyn Holt fell just short of winning that event, scoring 175.45 points and finishing 1 1/2 points behind Skyline’s Kaylie Jenkins, who won the competition scoring 176.95.

Mount Si’s Kailey Lingo took third in the 200 yard individual medley with a time of 2:43.14, and the Wildcat 400 yard freestyle relay team of McCabe, Amelia Moulton, Logan Luther and Sydney Kuehner took third in that race with a time of 4:27.01.

The Wildcats are now off until October 24 when they close the regular season with a meet against Mercer Island.

Support the Wildcat swim team by eating some pizza: In the meantime, though, if you are a supporter of Mount Si High School’s swim and dive program and love a little pizza, this will be up your alley. Next Thursday, the MOD Pizza location on Snoqualmie Ridge will be hosting a fundraiser for the team. 20% of all purchases made by customers inside the restaurant will go support the Wildcat program provided you tell the cashier when you order that you are supporting this swim team fundraiser. You must order in person at the MOD location on the Ridge; online and phone orders are not eligible for this fundraiser.

MOD, as you know, has been very active in recent months with fundraisers supporting various sports programs at Mount Si. The location is at 34817 Snoqualmie Parkway, Suite 110, and this is located in the shopping center which houses Safeway up there. Their hours are 10:30am to 10pm.
