Edmonds-Woodway wrapped up the regular season with a dominating performance.

The Warriors posted a pair of solid victories, defeating Mariner 130-40 and district rival Mountlake Terrace 123-47 in a Wesco South boys swimming double dual meet Thursday, Jan. 17, at Lynnwood Pool.

Up next for Edmonds-Woodway is the Edmonds School District championships at 3:30 p.m., Saturday, Jan. 26, at Lynnwood Pool.

“The boys want to try and set some school district records,” Edmonds-Woodway coach Nolan Welfringer said. “Especially since they set one last year, they’d like to set a bunch more this year.”

Some of the Warriors’ top performers did not swim in Thursday’s meet due to other school commitments and in order to rest up for the postseason. Edmonds-Woodway still has more than enough depth to sweep all of the individual and relay events.

Yuteng Wang won the 50-yard freestyle and the 100 breaststroke and Jeff Plum took the 200 individual medley and the 100 freestyle. Daniel Eno captured the 200 freestyle and Aiden Eno won the 500 freestyle. Anthony Edwards, normally a freestyle distance specialist, finished first in the 100 backstroke. Anton Teplouhov won the 100 butterfly.

Edmonds-Woodway’s 200 medley (Colin McAfee, Colton Grant, Niko Inadomi, Logan Schnitzius), 200 freestyle (Inadomi, Daniel Eno, Lukas Mraz, Teplouhov) and the 400 freestyle relays (McAfee, Aiden Eno, Zack Kotwis, Kell Colony) all finished first.

“I had some of my junior varsity guys fill in on the varsity relays,” Welfringer said. “They stepped up and swam really well.”

Arman Rahbarrad (500 freestyle) and Jonghyun Kim (50 freestyle) both recorded district cuts in their respective events.

The Warriors are the defending 3A District champions in the 200 medley and 200 freestyle relays.

“They’d like to be there again this year,” Welfringer said. “They should get there.”

The 3A District 1 meet is scheduled for Feb. 8-9 at Snohomish Aquatic Center.
