NK's Yorick Aban seeds first into Districts with 100 Butterfly | Boys swimming

POULSBO — Beginning Feb. 8, swimmers from Kingston and North Kitsap high schools will begin the final stretch to the 2A State Meet.

The West Central District III championships begin with prelims at 10 a.m. Feb. 8 in the Hazen High School Pool, 1101 Hoquiam Ave. NE, Renton.

Competing relay teams and individual swimmers are vying for a shot at the State Meet in the King County Aquatic Center, Feb. 15-16.

Included in the list of swimmers competing for the North Kitsap Vikings is Yorik Aban, whose district-qualifying 100 Yard Butterfly time seeded him first (00:58.11). Aban's time is less than five seconds behind the district record, held by Victor Hsiao (00:53.65), set in 2011.

North Kitsap's Thor Breitbarth's times seeded him second into the 200 Yard Freestyle (2:00.74) and third into the 500 Yard Freestyle (5:39.65).

Senior Viking Ian Christen seeded second into the 500 Yard Freestyle (5:39.28).

Among the Kingston Buccaneers' swimmers is Kevin Fox. Fox was the first swimmer on any Kingston boys swimming team to make it to the podium at the 2A State Meet in 2012. Fox will compete individually in the 200 Yard I.M. (2:12.40) and the 100 Yard Breaststroke (1:08.56).
