FEDERAL WAY — Bethany Aban was less than one second from taking home a third place medal Saturday night.
The North Kitsap High School senior, who competed in two swims, finished the 100 Yard Butterfly in 1 minute, 1.46 seconds. Sumner's Madison Munger finished in 1:00.90. Aban's preliminary — qualifying — time for the event was 1:01.62.
First place finisher Julia Sanders from Hockinson finished with a time of 56.29.
Before competing in the 100 Butterfly, Aban took eighth in the 200 Yard Individual Medley with a time of 2:18.36. Her preliminary time was 2:18.38.
Aban would have competed in two other events — 200 and 400 Free Relay — but the North Kitsap relay teams did not qualify for the finals.
The 200 Free Relay team (Aban, Lizzie Donnelly, Nerissa Lemon and Brittany Yu) placed 21st in the preliminaries with a time of 1:54.09. The 400 Free Relay team (Aban, Donnelly, Lemon and Carrie Snook) finished 17th (4:11.91).
