Prep sports recap: Highlights, storylines from the past week

Kamiak boys swimming shines at Kentridge Invite, plus basketball and wrestling highlights.

The trio of Vlad Gilszmer, Max Fang and Slava Gilszmer led the Kamiak High School boys swim and dive team to a second-place finish out of 32 teams at the talent-laden Kentridge Invitational on Saturday at King County Aquatic Center in Federal Way.

The standout Kamiak trio teamed with Ryan Fang to win the 400-yard freestyle relay and with Michael Viray to take third place in the 200 medley relay. And in addition to the trio’s relay success, Max Fang and the Gilszmer twins combined for six top-three individual finishes.

Vlad Gilszmer, a junior, won both the 500 freestyle and 100 backstroke. Max Fang, a senior, placed second in both the 200 freestyle and 100 butterfly. Slava Gilszmer, a junior, took third in both the 200 freestyle and 500 freestyle.

Shorewood senior Isaac Poole, meanwhile, set a meet record in the diving competition with a winning score of 517.9 points. He broke the previous meet record by 23.55 points.

Lake Stevens senior Alejandro Flores also had a strong performance, winning the 100 breaststroke and placing third in the 100 butterfly. He led the Vikings to an eighth-place team finish.

Shorecrest placed seventh in the team standings and Edmonds-Woodway finished 10th.

Boys basketball: Stanwood edges Terrace, GP cruises

Stanwood held on for a 53-51 road win over Mountlake Terrace in a key Wesco 3A/2A clash Friday night.

The Spartans (9-2, 5-0 Wesco 3A/2A) led by as many as 12 points in the third quarter before Mountlake Terrace rallied to make it a two-point game in the closing seconds. The Hawks (7-2, 3-1) were fouled on a potential game-tying putback attempt with 0.2 seconds to play, but they missed the first free throw and committed a lane violation on the second.

It was the eighth consecutive victory for Stanwood, which is tied with Marysville Pilchuck atop Wesco 3A/2A as the only two remaining unbeatens in league play.

Glacier Peak, meanwhile, continued its dominance with a smothering defensive performance in a 60-27 home rout of Wesco 4A rival Jackson on Friday night. The Grizzlies (11-0, 5-0 Wesco 4A) have outscored opponents by 28.5 points per game heading into Wednesday’s showdown against Mariner (10-1, 5-0) for first place in the conference.

Girls basketball: E-W moves atop Wesco 3A/2A, GP scores 91

After opening the season with four consecutive losses during a challenging non-league slate, Edmonds-Woodway has rattled off seven straight wins. The Warriors’ latest triumph was a 44-33 victory over visiting Snohomish on Friday night, which moved them into sole possession of first place in Wesco 3A/2A.

Edmonds-Woodway (7-4, 5-0 Wesco 3A/2A) and Archbishop Murphy (6-3, 4-0) are the league’s only remaining unbeatens in conference play. Arlington, Lynnwood, Shorecrest and Meadowdale are sitting right behind them with just one conference loss apiece.

Meanwhile, Glacier Peak exploded for a 91-53 road victory over Jackson in a Wesco 4A matchup Friday night. The first-place Grizzlies led just 37-36 at halftime before outscoring third-place Jackson 54-17 in the second half. It was the second massive point total this season for Glacier Peak (9-2, 5-0 Wesco 4A), which routed Lincoln 86-46 on Dec. 30.
