Race: Patrick Noland and Joe Gorchow vs. The Richland Swim Team
RICHLAND, Wash. -- The District 5 Title defense is on in Ellensburg. The Richland boys swim team competes Friday and Saturday in E-Burg to repeat as district champs.
"This year we would definitely like to achieve what we did last year, and then do even better," said Richland Senior Eric Blanchard. "At districts, we'd like to obviously win and keep our winning streak alive."
The confidence level for the Bombers is high after a perfect 8-0 regular season. Besides wanting to repeat as district champs, Richland wants to place higher than 4th in state like it did a year ago.
"We got quite a strong team this year," said Senior Alden Welsch. "We've been working on it like I said. We'd like to take top 3 for sure."
