The Wildcats were led by senior Fay Lustria who was part of both the winning 200 Yard IM and 400 Yard Freestyle relays, along with winning the 100 Yard Butterfly and 200 Yard IM individually. Lustria said—after doing her part in winning the 200 IM Relay with teammates Quinn Katayama-Stall, Elain Lee and Stephanie Lee—she was proud of her team and that she knew there was stiff competition throughout the meet, but also that after winning the 200 IM, that the race and meet meant more to her as a senior.

"I haven't swam in this 200 IM since my sophomore year at this meet, so it was kind of a full-circle moment and I was excited," Lustria said. "I had some really good friends in this race and I knew they would bring it, and during the race I knew it was tight, so I'm so excited to be here and so proud of the moment."

Lustria recorded personal bests in the 200 IM (2:00.36) and 100 butterfly (54.22).

The Wildcat women tallied 94 points in the meet, edging second place Lake Oswego (74.5), third place Jesuit (54), along with Lincoln (49) and Sunset (49) who tied for fourth.

Jesuit's third place finish comes on the heels of last week's Metro League Championships victory. The Crusaders finished in the top-5 in both the 200 Medley and 200 Freestyle Relays, but were led by sophomore Sydney Wilson who placed second to Grant's Quinn Brown in the 200 Freestyle before winning the 500, defeating Brown by more than two seconds.

"Quinn's an amazing swimmer. In the 500, I just went out there to swim my best time, and I think I did that."

Sunset-like their Metro League brethren—too placed well in the relays, winning the 200 Freestyle and finishing fifth in the 400 Free. Hannah Trainer was part of both relays and helped win the 200 with teammates Nicolien Corbeau, Delaney O'Hara and Cadence Johnston, but also shined individually, winning the Girls 100 Free while finishing third in the 200.

The Apollos senior said she was thrilled to again be a part of a winning relay team, but that winning individually was something new—but thrilling.

"It's my first individual win at state, so I'm really excited," Trainer said. "The relays take a lot of teamwork, but with this race it's all me and it's different. But it's really exciting."

On the boys side, Lake Oswego (97.5) used an OSAA meet record-setting time in the 200 Freestyle Relay to unseat Jesuit (72) from what would've been a seventh straight boys team championship. Lakeridge finished third (71), and Sunset (59) fourth.

The Crusaders finished third in the 200 Medley Relay, fourth in the 400 Freestyle Relay, and seventh in the 200 Freestyle Relay. Individually, they were led by junior Diego Nosack who claimed victories in both the 200 IM and 500 Freestyle.

Nosack said after his win in the 500 that he was more focused on trying to secure a team win for the Crusaders, but that he was pleased with how he swam individually in both of his victories.

"I was right on my best in the 200, so I'm happy with how I swam that," he said. "And then my 100 Free I got a best time, so no complaints there. It felt good."

Sunset was led by Kevin Park who finished fourth in the 100 Fly, while winning the 200 Free.

"I've always hoped to hit the podium, so it's pretty exciting," Park said. "It was a good race overall. The time wasn't what I was hoping for, but I'm happy."

The Apollos' Alan Ziang placed third in both the 200 and 500 Freestyle events, and Andrew Ignatescu was fifth in the 200 Free and eighth in the 100 Free.

But more than anything he said he was just happy to once again be competing after a tumultuous year due to the pandemic, and proud to be doing so with his team.

"To be here with my team, it's just been an awesome experience," Glasser said. "Last year we didn't get a state meet and it was hard. This has really been a blessing."
