Depth lifted Edmonds-Woodway to the Wesco 3A boys swimming district championship.

The Warriors won two individual events and two out of the three relays and had nine individual swims in the top 5 on Friday, Feb. 8, at Snohomish Aquatic Center.

Edmonds-Woodway finished with 435 points to finish ahead of Shorecrest (401) and defending champion Shorewood (347). Snohomish (226) and Lynnwood (138) rounded out the top 5 teams.

Junior Yuteng Wang won the 100-yard butterfly in 53.27 seconds and senior Daniel Eno captured the 100 breaststroke in 1:00.92. Wang also finished third in the 100 breaststroke and Eno took third in the 200 individual medley.

The Warriors’ 200 medley relay squad of sophomore Jeff Plum, Eno, Wang and junior Anton Teplouhov finished first in a district record time of 1:37.95 and the 200 freestyle relay team of junior Niko Inadomi, Eno, junior Andrew Rutz and senior Lukas Mraz won in 1:30.79, edging out Shorewood by .02 seconds.

Other top 5 finishers for the Warriors included sophomore Logan Schnitzius (fourth in 200 freestyle, fifth in the 500 freestyle), Mraz (fourth in the 50 freestyle), Teplouhov (third in the 50 freestyle, fourth in 100 freestyle) and Plum (second in 100 backstroke, third in the 100 butterfly).

Edmonds-Woodway’s 400 freestyle relay team of Wang, Plum, Schnitzius and Teplouhov finished second. The district title was even more significant since the Edmonds School District does not offer a diving program, so the Warriors did not score any points in the event, which was won by a Shorewood diver.

The district meet was scheduled for two days, Friday and Saturday, Feb. 8 and 9, but Saturday’s competition, when finals were scheduled, was cancelled due to weather concerns. Instead timed finals were held on Friday.

The 3A state boys swimming and diving championships are scheduled for Friday and Saturday, Feb. 15-16, at the King County Aquatic Center in Federal Way.
