The team scored 402.5 points. This is the third year in a row the team has taken home the title. All together the team took home seven league titles from Saturday’s meet.

Hayden Knittle, Henry Tran, Connor Donahue and Ryan Lui took the title in the 200 medley relay; Knittle won the title in the 200 freestyle and the 100 butterfly; Donahue won the title in the 100 freestyle; Ethan Childs won the title in the 500 freestyle; Donahue, Eduard Fedchyk, Phillip Pam and Knittle won the 200 free relay; and Childs won the title in the 100 breaststroke.

“It was a hard fought meet,” Roger Miron told the Renton Reporter. “Our team of 19 swimmers went up against teams wth 45-plus swimmers, but in the end we weren’t going to be denied.”

Lindbergh had a successful dual meet season with a record of 16-0 overall. This weekend the team will compete in the Central District Swim/Dive meet.
