State swim roundup: GP, Murphy divers capture titles

Glacier Peak’s Addison Farman wins the Class 4A state crown. Archbishop Murphy’s Samantha Mandeville secures the 2A/1A championship.

A pair of local divers are coming back from state with gold.

Glacier Peak junior Addison Farman and Archbishop Murphy junior Samantha Mandeville each claimed state diving titles Thursday during state girls swim dive and championships at King County Aquatic Center in Federal Way.

Farman cruised to the Class 4A championship with an 11-dive score of 403.4 points. She finished 60.15 points in front of second-place Maya Soto of Wenatchee.

Farman flipped the script on her runner-up finish from a season ago. As a sophomore, she was just over 60 points behind the winner.

Her performance came after setting district meet and school records while winning the 4A District 1 title last Saturday.

Farman led a strong showing from the Grizzlies’ standout diving trio. Glacier Peak just missed placing three divers in the 4A top 10 with sophomore Claire Butler placing third with 329.15 points and junior Selma Boudraa 11th at 261.55 points. It was the second top-five career finish for Butler, who place fifth as a freshman.

The trio helped the Grizzlies move into first place in the team standings with a 19-point cushion over second-place Redmond. Swimming finals begin Saturday.

Mandeville won the 2A/1A state title with 317.75 points. She finished 19 points in front of second-place Seema Borgmann of Sammamish.

Her effort came on the heels of winning the 2A District 1 crown last Saturday. She placed fourth at state as a freshman.

Monroe sophomore Madelyn Clark delivered the top finish in the 3A meet and placed fourth with 274.65 points. Auburn Riverside’s Ava Lear won the 3A title with 360.10 points.
