Shelton divers took the top four places at the Narrows League Championships last week. It is the first time in league history that one school grabbed the top 4 spots. The Highclimbers’ Jon Netzel was the league champion, followed by Troy Krumpols who took 2nd, Zach Netzel was 3rd and Mikey Willis finished 4th. Jon Netzel and Troy Krumpols have qualified for the state meet on Feb. 19 & 20 at King County Aquatic Center. According to school officials, over the past two years, Dive Coach Rob Phelan has been the most successful diving coach in Washington state.
Seven Shelton swimmers are headed to the District meet on Feb. 12 & 13. Those Highclimbers are Alec Dodge, Ryan Youngquist, Brayden Ordonez, Levi Vance, Alex Brown-Garcia, Taylor Toney and Robert Cornwell.
Two Shelton bowlers participated at the West Central District Tournament Saturday at Pacific Lanes. Highclimbers Rebecca Robinson and Kaylee Schilter bowled above their averages more than 30 pins for each of their three games.
Rebecca Robinson: 209, 139, 130 = 478, 159.33 average
Kaylee Schilter : 163, 119, 184 = 466, 155.33 average
Rebecca Robinson is the 2nd alternate for State.
The Shelton bowling program went from not winning a match last season to finishing 3rd in the south division with five wins. With several bowlers returning next season, the future is looking brighter for SHS bowling.
