From the Sideline

“Andrew Brunson, junior, is Hazen swim team’s first swimmer this season to secure a individual time standard to compete at the district meet. Andrew secured his place in the 100 back with a time of 1 minute, 2.78 seconds at the Kentridge Invite. He also met the North Puget Sound League time standard in the 200 free. Andrew is also a member of all three relays where he has helped the team earn district time standards — 200 medley relay (back), 200 free relay and 400 free relay. He is an exciting swimmer and a great leader for the Hazen swim team.”
