Swimming doesn’t end in Sitka when the state high school meet is over — far from it. Sitka’s two swim clubs, SEAK Swim and the Baranof Barracudas, packed the pool at the Southeast Championships in Juneau December 7-9.

Coach Robby Jarvill’s SEAK Swim team are pictured here range in age from 7 to 18. Front row: Bridger Bird, Matthew Rice, Rudy Atkins
Second: Tucker Conaster, Sam Johnson, Brandon Stevens
Third: Khai Brahnam, Steven Harmon, Joe Harris
Fourth: Andy Rule, Sidney Fleming
Fifth: Bailey Fleming, Max Johnson
Sixth: Cyleena Pellett, Sydnee Kimber
Seventh: Spencer Combs, Brooklyn Sudnikovich-Eddy
Back: Carl Brenner, RJ Miller, Louis Belley
