The Kamiakin girls swimming team picked up a big victory Tuesday, beating Mid-Columbia Conference rival Walla Walla 108-75 at Kennewick’s Serier Pool.
The Braves’ first- and third-place teams in the 200-yard medley relay helped Kamiakin jump out to a 10-4 lead. From there, the Braves cruised to the victory.
Both teams picked up six event wins, but Kamiakin swimmers nabbed at least two of the top three places in every event except for the 100 butterfly and 400 freestyle relay.
Natalie Badgley (200 individual medley), Erin Crow (diving), Madison Thurber (100 backstroke) and Sydney Caufield (100 breaststroke) earned individual wins for Kamiakin.
Walla Walla’s Hally Ruff won the 200 and 500 free, and fellow freshman Paige Gardner was a double winner in the 50 and 100 free. Sophomore Mackenzie Hale gave Wa-Hi six points with her victory in the 100 fly.
Hamilton also won the 100 free, and teammate Rachel Schafer was first in the 100 fly and 100 back.
Southridge’s Allison Huske beat 2013 state qualifier Anna Hall of Kennewick in diving.
Kennewick’s Alexis Murphy won the 200 IM and 100 breast, and Courtney Schreiner was first in the 500 free.
