Two Kitsap athletes named WIAA Athlete of the Week

Kitsap swimmers had great success at the WIAA state championship meets on Nov. 10-11, but North Kitsap sophomore Eleanor Beers led the way with four state championship wins.

Beers won individual titles in the 50- and 100-yard freestyle races with times of 23.65 and 50.99 respectively. She finished just one one-hundredth of a second off her previous year’s 100 free time, which is still the meet record. Beers also swam on North Kitsap’s state championship-winning 200 medley relay team and 200 freestyle relay team. For her efforts, she won the Swimmer of the Meet award for the second year in a row.

Not surprisingly, Beers was also named WIAA Athlete of the Week.

Crosspoint Academy’s Aydan Laurion scored twice in a 3-1 victory over Providence Classical Christian, earning WIAA Athlete of the Week honors. Crosspoint is now just two wins from a state championship. They will play in the semifinals against Orcas Island at 7 p.m. on Nov. 17 at Sunset Chev Stadium in Sumner. The winner of that game plays for the championship at 4 p.m. on Nov. 18.
