Loggers Begin Competition At Three-Day Husky Invite

FEDERAL WAY, Wash. – The Puget Sound swimming teams jumped into the Husky Invitational on Friday with some solid performances. The men's 200 free relay team finished eighth among the 49 relay teams to highlight the day.

Keven Henley, Clayton Jacobson, Teale Kitson and Jere Jeremikj combined to turn in a time of 1:26.51 in the 200 free relay to finish eighth. They were also the first team to finish among a handful of NWC teams at the meet.

Kitson also turned in a solid solo performance in the 500 free. His time of 4:38.47 placed 15th in the preliminaries of the event. Finals times were not available this evening for the 500 free through the Husky Invitational website.

Henley also made a final after turning in a 21.33 in the 50 free in the morning prelims. He made the "D" final and finished 28th overall with a 21.46 in finals.

Melissa Norrish's 2:09.67 was just one second shy of an NCAA Division III "B" cut and led the women's team on the first day.

The Loggers are back in the water for day two of three tomorrow.
