CONGRATULATIONS! West Seattle HS 9th-grade brothers swimming in state competition

Two more local high-school athletes are swimming at the state championships starting today! We just received this report and photo:

Two West Seattle High School athletes qualified for the Boys 3A State Swimming Championships, February 16-17 (today and tomorrow) at the King County Aquatic Center. 9th grader Ben Wrenholt (left) will be competing in the 500 Free, and his twin brother Tom Wrenholt (also a freshman) will be competing in the 100 Back. The swim team is led by outstanding first-year coach Logan Rysemus.

    Congratulations to both of you!   This is even more impressive knowing you’re both freshman and are already achieving state qualifying times.  Most people don’t understand that swimming is a year round sport.   You swim AAU for three seasons and high school for one season.   I wish you both success.
