Led by two wins from Anna Weber, Aberdeen’s girls swim team defeated Tumwater 108-77 on Wednesday at the Grays Harbor YMCA.
The Bobcats won seven of the meet’s 12 races, including Weber taking the top spot in the 200-yard freestyle and the 100-yard breaststroke with times of 2:16.16 and 1:10.98, respectively. The senior multi-state champion’s time in the breaststroke is a state-qualifying time.

Aberdeen 4, Black Hills 1
Aberdeen picked up its second win of the season over Black Hills, winning 4-1 on Wednesday in Tumwater.
The Bobcats (2-4) won with a different lineup than when they defeated the Wolves 6-0 on Monday. Aberdeen’s top two singles players — Colton Faulkner and Andrew Troeh — were paired up by Bobcats head coach Dave Bruncke to compete in the No. 1 doubles match. The duo won in convincing fashion, defeating the Wolves’ top doubles team of Josh Do and Harrison Pilon 6-2, 6-2.
The switch meant Aberdeen’s typical top pairs team of Ashdon Swope and Kyle Miller got to compete in the No. 1 and No. 2 singles matches, respectively.
Down 2-1, Swope recovered to tie the set at 5-5 before winning the final two games to win his match over Black Hills’ Ryan Coki 7-5, 6-4.
Miller dropped the first set 6-2 and came up short in the second set 7-5 to the Wolves’ Lauri Calvert.
According to Bruncke, the season is already a success based on how many matches were able to be played in a short season at an atypical time of year.
“We have now played everyone at least once and have six matches in,” he said. “Our preseason guess for the number of matches we would get in was around four, so the season is a weather success.”
Singles — Ashdon Swope (Aberdeen) defeated Ryan Cokl (Black Hills) 7-5, 6-4; Lauri Calvert (BH) def. Kyle Miller (AB) 6-2, 7-5.
Doubles — Andrew Troeh/Colton Faulkner (AB) def. Josh Do/Harrison Pilon (BH) 6-2, 6-2; Foster Patterson/Daniel Garcia (AB) def. Dylan Browne/Parker Andersen (BH) 6-1, 6-1; Ayden Giffin/Brodyn Osina (AB) def. Forfeit 6-0, 6-0.
