Ellensburg claimed the team title at the District meet with 333 points. The West Valley Rams were a close second with 317 points.

Perez, Cromwell, Grant and Ebbelaar, besides making it to the finals in the 200-medley relay, qualified for the consolation finals in the 200-yard freestyle relay. The foursome came out on top in that heat, swimming to a clocking of 2:09.48. The winning finals time in that event was 1:52.82, set by a team from Cheney.

Grandview Coach Rita Uribe said the Lady Greyhounds performed well at District.

“Our season is now done, but I am very proud of them,” she said.

“They all improved a great deal over the season and will be strong competitors next year with us having such a young team,” she added.
