North Kitsap Girls Swimming | Fall Sports Preview

North Kitsap Girls Swimming

Head coach: Greg Braun

2018 record: 7-0 (7-0 Olympic)

Key swimmers: Eleanor Beers, sr.; Brianna Hoffman, jr.; Layna Hart, jr.; Kyla Schroeder, jr.; Kristin DuPont, so.; Ava Harris, so.; Zoe Cera, so.

Outlook: It was a dream season for the Vikings in 2018, winning league, district and state championship titles. Can they do it again? They’re still deep and talented, but they will have to replace the contributions of a few seniors, especially Isabel Hendryx and Izy Iral. All eyes will be on Beers as she closes her career as the most decorated swimmer in school history. She broke the 2A state meet record for the 50 free last season and has a shot at the state record this year. Hoffman is an up-and-comer, winning a state championship in the 200 free and finished second in the 500 free. Those two will also anchor the freestyle relays along with some of the team’s younger swimmers. It’s a daunting task to repeat as so many things need to go right, but it should be another successful year in the pool.

Schedule: Sept. 10, 3 p.m. at Port Angeles | Sept. 12, 2:30 p.m. at Bremerton | Sept. 14, 1 p.m at Spartans Relays (Bainbridge) | Sept. 19, 3 p.m., Olympic | Sept. 26, 3 p.m. at Klahowya | Oct. 3, 3 p.m., Sequim | Oct. 10, 3 p.m., Port Townsend | Oct. 12, 9 a.m. at Olympic Swimvitational | Oct. 17, 3 p.m. at Kingston | Oct. 25, 3 p.m., Last Chance Meet at Olympic.
