FEDERAL WAY — Aberdeen’s Robby Lewis and Kai Kawashima finished off their 2016-17 boys swimming seasons on Saturday with top-16 places at the state 2A boys swimming and diving championship meet at the King County Aquatic Center in Federal Way.

Lewis, a senior in his final swim as a Bobcat, took 15th overall in the 100-yard butterfly at 56.88.

Kawashima, a sophomore diver, completed his day by qualifying for the finals and finishing 14th overall with an 11-dive total of 247.55 points.

“This season exceeded my expectations,” AHS head coach Angela Durr said. “To have two kids move on to the second day of state was encouraging, especially for Kai, who is only a sophomore. Robby was close to his PR from yesterday’s preliminaries. For him to achieve his best times at districts and state is a fitting end to his swimming career (at Aberdeen). Robby’s dedication to swimming has been an honor to watch and I am very proud to have been a part of his last few years as a swimmer. I am excited to see what next season has in store for us.”

As a team, Aberdeen finished with five team points, good for a tie for 35th place.
