Competing against Pullman is always a challenge because the Greyhounds are not only talented but also deep, often putting fiv e or more swimmers in events - some- thing the Blackhawks Couldn't overcome despite some good performances. Watts captured Cheney's only first place finish, taking the 500 free with a time of 5:26.09, with Edwards third in 5:54.65. Watts was second in the 100 butterfly in 58.96. Meyer finished second in the 200 IM with a time of 2:25.05 and was third in the 100 free in 57.07 while Babcock took second in the 100 breast in 1:09.75, placing third in the 100 free in 55.01. Ed- wards took third in the 100 back in 1:12.59 and Chris Boyle was fourth in the 50 in 27.23. All three Cheney relay teams took second. The 200 medley team of Watts, Schreiber, Meyer and Babcock finished with a time of 1:50.46, the 200 free team of Watts, Meyer, Wynd and Babcock in 1:38.77 and the 400 free team of Tepp, Wynd, Jenkins and Steele in 4:00.75. Cheney finishes its Eastern Washington 2A dual meet season with a 4-2 record, second place behind Pullman at 6-0. Both Black- hawks losses came against the Greyhounds. Both teams now turn their at- tention to 4A/3A/2A district com- petition this Friday and Saturday at Central Washington University Pool in Ellensburg. Fifteen Black- hawks swimmers have qualified, head coach Jennifer Hochwalt said, along with Liberty High School co- op swimmer, Kyle O'Malley; Event winners in Ellensburg automatically qualify for state competition Feb. 18-19 at the Aquatic Center in Federal Way, along with swimmers who have already made state time cuts dur- ing the season. Babcock and Watts have each made the state cut in a pair of events each, along with the 200 freestyle team, and Hochwalt thinks the Blackhawks have a good chance to advance in a couple more events at districts either through wins or allocations once district meets in Western Washington are wrapped up next weekend. "They're looking really good;" she said of her swimmers. "I'm excited. I hope they go their season bests."
